When you are flying for the first time, it can be a daunting experience, especially if you are afraid of heights, it can be a challenge.
However, with any particular skill, you just need practice and dedication before you can learn to be a professional.
When it comes to flying, there are a few things you must keep in mind in order to be successful and complete your course. You need full faith in yourself and be able to focus on your goals. Because if you get scared of simply being high in the air, then you won’t pass. I am just stating things as is.
Your first few rides will be about getting used to navigating the control panel and the interior of the plane. Once you have gotten used to it, you will then proceed to try a few lessons with a pilot. Don’t be afraid and panic, as long as you do as your flight instructor tells you to in a calm and collected manner everything will be fine.
We take safety and precautions very seriously, so you won’t be flying in bad weather or if there is any chance or risk of accident, some days might get delayed, but hope you will understand. We have not had any accidents for the past 7 consecutive years.
You need to learn how to visualize yourself flying smoothly through the air. Being able to imagine a perfect session and controlling yourself is of the utmost importance.
Don’t be afraid to ask any questions and we encourage students to bring a notepad and pen or better yet a video recorder to re-study what you have learned.
Patience is key
You do need to be patient and disciplined, because you won’t get everything right the first time, so don’t give up. As long as you visualize yourself practising and flying well, you will slowly get better with time.
Like with any skill, you do need to stay consistent and practice regularly if you are to pass your exams. You might get nervous the first time around, but the anxiety gets better the more you practice.
Sooner or later, you will develop a sense of mastery and comfort with flying.
Knowing when it’s not for you
At certain times, you do need to know when something is not a good fit for you. Rather than forcing yourself to go through torture, it sometimes is better to know when something is just not right for you.
If you really have phobia of height and can’t overcome the issue, you don’t necessarily have to make yourself go through that much suffering and pain just to prove a point. It’s okay to let go of things that are not necessarily important to you.
