Cargo operations are usually challenging. In many cases, they require the loadmaster to travel with the aircraft to supervise the loading and offloading process. Is it possible to optimize cargo loading process?
Pre-flight briefing is often rushed or skipped entirely, yet it plays a critical role in flight lessons. The benefit these briefings can offer are overlooked and students do not always anticipate just how important they can be.
During the Night Visual Flight Rules course, pilots in training are introduced to different topics that concern flying at night. Human factors and illusions are some of the key concepts to understand, to be fully prepared for N-VFR practical flight training.
Have you ever wondered how we know the final mass of the aircraft? While fuel, cargo, and even bags are carefully weighted at the airport, there is no such procedure for the people, so where do these numbers come from?
Besides maximum design weights, there is also a requirement describing minimum aircraft mass. In order to certify the aircraft, it must comply with all requirements applied by the regulator.
Iceland Aviation Academy offers an innovative teaching environment including next generation e-learning for future pilots
Iceland Aviation Academy is one of the market-leading flight schools in the Nordic region. Training Organization provides students with an innovative teaching environment including Evionica's online courses for PPL(A) and ATPL(A) licenses,
The role of the flight instructor in aviation training is crucial for future pilots. The instructor’s knowledge, expertise, and experience shape students training and pilot skills. The new approach to pilot training helps students master the knowledge and gain experience before their first flight training.
Cargo movement would result in an uncontrolled Center of Gravity shift during flight. That is why every Unit Load Device (pallet or container) must be secured to stay in place at all times.
The lateral balance aims to keep quite even distribution of mass loaded on the LEFT and RIGHT aisle of the aircraft. It is crucial for wide-body aircraft which can accommodate ULDs loaded side-by-side in two lines on both Main and Lower Decks.
