Getting yourself enrolled in a flying school can be exciting. However, more often than not, you’ll have a reasonable period where you’ll have to wait for the training to begin.

Instead of wasting this time, you could utilize it to prepare yourself for the training.

Here are a few things that you can learn about flying by yourself

  • You should have a firm knowledge of aerodynamic if you plan on becoming a pilot. How do planes fly? Learning the answer to this simple question will help you in your training a lot. So you can start by studying basic aerodynamics at home.
  • Recent developments in mobile phones have made almost anything possible. One of the things you can benefit from is flight simulator apps. It will help you expose yourself to the basic flight principles and aerodynamic tendencies while also developing your hand-eye coordination and aviation knowledge. If you want to take it another step further, you can even invest in full desktop simulators.
  • The weather has a significant effect on flying a plane. So naturally, it will play a big part in your training as well. So it is a good idea to learn how different weather affects flying. To do this, you can start by looking up the basics of weather, such as colds fronts, warm fronts, Coriolis effect, etc., to help build a basic understanding.

Learning these things will help you better prepare for your training before you even get there and give you an edge over the other students. For more information on a flying school in Midvale, please call Elevate Aviation.
