New Pilot Orientation
Welcome to flight school! As a new pilot, you have student status and your first objective is to graduate by completing the basic flight school checkride and receive a promotion to First Officer. Once you receive a satisfactory grade on this part, you may then transfer to the Altair hub of your choice, where you may commence commercial operations for Altair.
If you are an experienced pilot, you may choose to go straight to the checkride, fly it and submit it for grading. Before doing this, if this is the first checkride for Altair, you will need to install a small piece of software that functions as a flight data recorder. You will record your flight, then e-mail the data file to the Chief Pilot according to the instructions in the checkride itself.
Otherwise, you may proceed to the lessons listed on the right-hand side of this page. Start with Lesson (1.) and work through the list. When ready, proceed directly to the checkride. You will use the Cessna 182S for all the lessons in this series.
MANDATORY STUDENT REQUIREMENTS:
Later, you will want to attain Senior First Officer status. For this, you must log 50 hours of flight time and pass another checkride. Once you approach 50 hours, return to flight school for some basic instrument flying instruction and the checkride. Detailed requirements for advancing through the Altair ranks are found in the HR Section. But for now, let's concentrate on the basics.
