OSL AZL CREW

Welcome aboard

We aim attention on establishing right habits of studying,
a safety-focus mentality and teach our students
the highest level of professionalism.

In OSL AZL the instructors have all the best qualities not only as pilots, but also mentors - so that they can lead you didactically and practically during this crucial time on your path to a pilot career.

You’ll be spending a lot of time with your mentor.

How to find the best flight instructor?

What are the things to consider when choosing a flight instructor? We wanted to point out some essentials to look out when making such an important decision. The person who will teach you how to fly will have a special place in your heart for the rest of your life. Now, doesn't it sound important enough?

1.

Do the proper research

Flight schools really do differ these days. There is all kinds of them and so the demand of instructors in each one will be dissimilar. The school should have a decent description of the team. The background and credentials of the instructor is also important and the names should appear on flight school's website so you are able to do some research. They should be available to meet with you even if it's just for a quick and sweet (or not) online chat.

2.

Ask questions

Remember, there should be no such thing as ``dumb`` or ``embarassing`` questions to ask. You have only just entered the aviation world and there is so much to learn, it is ok and even expected that you simply don't know things. Will he have time for you or maybe his schedule is pretty busy. Talk to him about the style of teaching he prefers, does he sound to you like a true mentor? Do you feel the vibe? Well, you better do as you'll be spending a lot of hours just one to one with him or her.

3.

Is he or she an actual experienced teacher?

In OSL AZL we never involve pilots-instructors who are in the process of implementing the mandatory flight hours for obtaining a professional license, and we do not employ them ``temporarily`` to ``train`` our students while doing their own homework. That way we know our team and can assure students that they are the best pilots and mentors. No matter what school you'll choose, you should definitely look into this particular matter while doing your research.

Is teaching you just an easiest access to time-building for the flight instructor or is it his real job with an actual experience?

4.

Introductory flight is a must

It is a must to ``have a go`` before making final decision on not only becoming a pilot (that you might've already figured out) but on place you'll learn to fly and the instructor that'll accompany you all the way through. Let's make it clear, this isn't just some sightseeing flight that will give you few butterflies in your stomach, it's so much more than that. To familiarize with the aircraft, flight instruments in the cockpit that provide the pilot with data – such as altitude, airspeed, vertical speed, heading other crucial information. Now, how does the potential instructor deliver all this knowledge to you?
