A Few Great Tips for Pilots
If you’re piloting an aircraft, then there’s a chance that you may be flying passengers from one location to the next. As a pilot, you’ll be responsible for far more than the health and well-being of your passengers – you’ll need a firm understanding of your plane and how it operates, both on the ground and in the air. At Nextant Pacific, we’re happy to provide advice to even the most experienced of pilots; after all you can never truly learn all that there is to know about flights and travel.
A Final Check
If your passengers are due to embark soon, then it’s a good idea to perform one final walk around the plane – just to ensure that all open lockers and access points are sealed as necessary. Your passengers will appreciate the careful attention to detail, and you’ll be able to rest-assured that your plane is good to go as you enter the cockpit.
Every aviation expert on the planet would recommend a standard fuel check before take-off, but spending an extra few minutes to ensure that your fuel gauge is accurately reading your fuel volume can make a lot of difference in the air. This will also minimise the need to land for refuelling for longer flights – and if a refuel is necessary then you could always opt for a location further away to minimise your flight time.
Whether your aircraft is used for business flights or if you travel for leisure – the chances are that you’ll be in direct contact with the majority of your passengers. It’s not uncommon for certain people to suffer with flight anxiety and studies have shown that meeting the pilot can greatly help with this matter. Introduce yourself to any passengers that don’t know you, and take the time to reassure them that they are in good hands. More on New Aircraft For Sale below…
