  • An ability to remain calm under pressure
  • An ability to lead

Before commencing pilot training you will need to pass a medical. See “What does the medical assess?” below.

What does the medical assess?

Medicals are used to assess your physical fitness and also, if you have a medical condition, how this and any associated treatment may affect the safety of air navigation.

What kind of aircraft can I fly?

Pilot training is incremental and involves gaining the skills and experience to fly a range of aircraft types, from single through to multi engine, and earning various instrument and operations ratings. Pilots can only fly aircraft appropriate to their licence and rating type.
