Enroll for PPL with HM Aviation

The first step to becoming a pilot is getting the private pilot license, whether one wants to fly as a career, or for enjoyment. HM Aviation has expert career councilors who will help with any decisions regarding a flying career. Some people dream of having a career as a pilot, others would like a career in aviation, but not as a pilot. Many people not wanting a career as a pilot enjoy flying recreationally. Whatever path is right for you, the career councilors at HM Aviation will help you decide on which course of action is right for you.

The next decision is on where to do your flight training. For those desiring a career in aviation, it is usually best to go abroad for flight training. Licenses issued in North America don’t expire, and can be readily converted to other countries, including India. HM Aviation has tie-ups with flight schools from around the world, and help the individual choose which flight school and location is best for them.

The private pilot license is when the individual learns to fly. They will be assigned a flight instructor, and will be taught the basics of flying. They will then practice take-offs, circuits and landings, and when ready, released for their first solo. This is an experience no pilot ever forgets. The student then learns advanced maneuvers and emergency procedures. Flying by reference to aircraft instruments is also introduced.

The next step is a cross-country flight with and instructor, and then solo. After that, the student prepares for, and takes the flight test. Ground school and a written exam are also required. Topics include: air law, theory of flight, meteorology, flight operations, and human factors. Different countries have slightly different hour requirements for the private pilot license, but students usually average around 60-70 hours. Completion of the required hours, flight and written test will earn one the private pilot license.

Often, the next step is the night rating, even for one who does not wish to fly as a career. This allows one to fly an aircraft at night. Some more instrument flight training is required, as well as night flight training with an instructor and solo. No flight test is required for the night rating.

For those desiring a career as a pilot, the commercial pilot license is required. More flight training, hour-building, and ground school are required. An additional flight and written test is also required. The night rating is also part of the commercial pilot course for those wanting a career as a pilot.
Additional requirements such as the multi-engine and instrument rating are required for those desiring careers as airline or corporate pilots. Some will obtain a flight instructor rating to build hours before moving on to the airlines.Whatever one’s goals as a pilot, it all begins with the private pilot license. This is an enjoyable start to a great career or recreation.
