Non-Pilot Crew Resource (Learn To Fly)
Many non-pilots regularly fly with another pilot. Most often it is our spouse or friend and some are frequent fliers for business either in their own aircraft or the airliners. Some fly with because they enjoy it, but many are uncomfortable with flying to some degree or another. Here we need to mention the cabin crews as they fly more than anybody else and have no idea about the cockpit or the flight deck. We cannot make them pilots but they can be a good resource for the crews in the event in which one of the cockpit crew is disabled due to any reason and can help the other crew in executing the safe landing at the nearest airfield. This course is also highly recommended for the Cabin Crews of the Airlines who are concerned about the Crew Resource Management and the Flight Safety.
In the event of an emergency, our course is designed to help NON-PILOTS save the day, rather than panic. While the objective of this course is not to make you a full-fledged pilot, you will be fully prepared and have the confidence to perform as an emergency replacement pilot.

Four (4) hours of Initial Ground School/Flight Simulator Training
Three (3) Hours of Optional Flight Training:
One (1) hour of controlling the airplane
One (1) hour of GPS navigation and emergency communications
One (1) hour of continued ATC communications coupled with airport arrival and landing procedures
Part I: Ground School / Flight Simulator Segment
The initial ground school portion of our course covers the basics of flight and navigation. Before beginning, the qualified instructor, allows the students to ask questions freely, without intimidation. Once the instructor puts the students at ease, answering their most personal questions about flying and their fears, it is time to get into the meat of the course.
The skills required to safely pilot a plane are distilled down to only the basic necessities. Using slides, an overhead projector and model airplanes the instructor explains how to control the aircraft.
Correct terminology isn’t stressed. Everyday language is often used to convey the information. If a student uses “steering wheel” instead of “yoke,” they won’t be rebuked. Students have been known to “steer” instead of “turn.” “Petrol” gets the message across just as well as “throttle.” Whatever works for the students? Control inputs and results are often related to driving a car and riding a bicycle. Every effort is made to keep it as simple as possible.
Pilotage is emphasized. Students learn how to read a sectional and how to keep track of where they are so they will know where they need to go to find an airport in an emergency.
The second half of the ground school deals with radio navigation and emergency communications and airport arrival. We will make VOR navigation understandable and practical in one short session. The emergency frequencies like 121.5 are planted firmly and permanently into the heads of the Course Attendees. Practical communications are stressed. For Crew Resource pilots, “HELP!” works as well, maybe better, than “Mayday.”
Part II: Into the Air
When it comes to the flying portion of the course, instructors follow a prepared syllabus, modifying it as necessary to fit the student’s needs. After a comprehensive walk-around, reviewing what was covered in the ground school, it’s time for the first flight. Attendees fly from the right seat, just as they normally would.
(If you have a desire to fly at a later stage to become a Pilot you must inform your instructor
before the commencement of the course so that you may be prepared to fly on the left seat
to earn you a Student Pilot License and to enable you to log the flight hours)
The FIRST HOUR of flying emphasizes aircraft control. Simple power setting rules are demonstrated. The student learns how to control altitude and direction of flight. The importance of trim is taught. Every effort is made to ensure the student has a successful first flight and acquires the basic skills to fly the aircraft safely, maintaining control at all times. Pattern entry and landing is demonstrated with the instructor emphasizing the visual clues, power and trim settings. Once in a position to set down, the student pulls back the power and the instructor allows the aircraft to settle onto the runway and roll out to a stop.
The SECOND HOUR begins with the student performing the takeoff and then pilotage is introduced. The student learns to transfer the basic piloting skills from the first lesson into purposefully flying to where they want to go. The student also starts to handle more of the communications with ATC, easing into that necessary skill. This time the student follows the instructor through on the landing.
The THIRD HOUR pulls everything together and is spent practicing GPS navigation and ATC communications. Students gain control experience while tracking radials and complying with ATC instructions. Students practice emergency procedures; assuming control, contacting ATC and navigating to a strange airport and landing. By the conclusion of the day the student will have made a number of landings entirely on their own.
Students returning from their final lesson emerge from the cockpit with wide grins and that same self-satisfied, triumphant expression as do regular student pilots who have just completed their first solo.
