There are dozens of questions asked every day in our Facebook group. Here are just a few of the most common questions that newcomers to the world of flying often ask.
Technically, anyone can learn to fly if they are willing to put in the time and effort to do so. There is a minimum age of 17 years old in most countries and no upper age limit as long as certain medical requirements are met. However, there are some factors that can make it more difficult for some people than others. Ultimately, whether or not someone can learn to fly depends on their individual circumstances.
A reasonable level of fitness will certainly make the experience more enjoyable and you will have to pass a medical examination.
Being in good shape will help you to be more comfortable during your flights and maintain your alertness for longer. Flying for long periods can be taxing on the body and the mind, and those who are reasonably fit will be better able to handle the demands of flying.
While you do not need to be a world-class athlete to learn how to fly, being in good shape will certainly make the experience more enjoyable.
There are a few different types of pilot licences, each with its own benefits. The best type of pilot licence to go for will depend on your specific goals and needs.
For instance, if you want to fly commercial airplanes, you’ll need to get a commercial pilot licence (CPL). If you’re only interested in flying for fun, then a private pilot licence (PPL) will suffice.
Each type of licence has different requirements, so be sure to do your research before committing to one. But in general, the best type of pilot licence to go for is the one that will allow you to achieve your flying goals.
The cost of learning to fly will vary depending on the airfield or airport and the training aircraft. In general, you can expect to spend anywhere from $6,000 to $7,000 on flight training for a pilot certificate. However, the cost is worth it for those who have a passion for flying.
