"Pilot is just short for someone who has faith, perseverance, and excellent judgement."
Having the honorable title of pilot is not just about flying planes. Besides taking life to a whole new level so to speak, pilots must have the most amount of faith and good judgement. They need to be able to make perfect choices while being able to multi task. Since the beginning, like sailors, weather has been a top concern for pilots. They can never just assume the weather. A pilot must be able to check up and decipher safety conditions. I have done some research about why this is so important. Most of them are obvious while others are merely not so obvious. There is plenty of 'risk' associated with flying. In order to actually succeed in this career one needs to be focused and determined to place safety over being on time.
It seems as if weather changes very rapidly. The most common things we hear about have to do with the disappearances of pilots in the Bermuda triangle. What is more concerning is the actual weather shifts and weather patterns happening today. Aviation is the key industry where safety is most important. I have been doing some pre-flight training research in order to gain a better idea of weather patterns and so forth. I thought that doing research will for sure help me gain a better understanding. Already I have been able to convey the message of weather.
With weather being a main concern in this industry, it is so important to understand every aspect of something. This is wonderful, and this is time to reach new horizons.
