Do you have any logbooks other than Black, Brown, Blue? How about Pink?

May 16, 2010

If you are looking for “style” in piloting, it’s not an easy task.  Would you agree? 

What should you wear when you fly? Something safe? or something more practical?  What should you take with you when you fly? One complete set of survival gears and equipment? or just a chart and a headset?

What color is your flight bag? What brand is it? Where do you purchase pilot supplies. Where can I find more options?  Well, these are things that come across pilot’s’ mind all the time, but most pilots simply compromise with what’s easy to buy. There are only a handful of popular brands and pilot shops.

But don’t give up if you didn’t find what you are looking for in popular brands and popular pilot shops.  Because you can get a whloe lot of things customized to match your “style.” It may cost a little bit more but if flying is something special for you that you are doing, it may be worth it.

How about a PINK logbook? Guess what? We were just told the other day that you can get it from this website. She said, “Girls Fly TOO!

Which book do I need to buy?

April 27, 2010

Well, this is a hard question to answer.  But, let’s put it this way.

Flight Training can be based on “per Flight Instructor” or “per Flight School.” If the Flight School is and FAA Approved Part 141 Flight School, the training is based on “per Flight School.”  If the Flight School is not a FAA Approved Part 141 and operates based on Part 61, your flight training can be based on the Flight School but ultimately, based on “per flight instructor.”

So, depending on the operation, the books that the instructor favors and books that the flight school favors and must stick to, could be the same or may vary.  Either way, all the books that you use to “STUDY” towards your FAA Pilot Certificate should be ultimately based on various books and publication that our fully supported or recommended by the Federal Aviation Administrator(FAA); the Civil Aviation Authority in the U.S.

The FAA website(as of today), actually has a fair amount of, or more like just about everything, available through downloadable PDF files when it comes to Handbooks that you are looking for and other publications that explain certain subject matters(AC=Advisory Circulars) for FREE!  Those that have no problems reading books and documents through your computer screen will probably find out that these files are amazingly cost effective and at the same time, “full-of-information.”  For those that like to read though “books” they are also available.  If you would like to purchase them, you can get them at any pilot shop that you find online, or just call us or visit us to purchase the book from our pilot shop at the flight school.

Once you have looked into all the FAA Publications and Documents(which are too many…), and you decide that you want to get more insight of how to interpret many of the theories that you learn, look into various books that you find as you surf on the internet.  All of the books are great.  It’s just a matter of if the information provided in the book is at your level to read.  I guess that why they have the term, “pilot journey.”  Sometimes, information that you read doesn’t “click-in” unless you read it and see it at the right timing. Keep all the books that you buy in your aviation bookshelf.

Most of the FAA Handbooks today have specific product numbers on them.  They look something like this: FAA-8083-***.

If you’d like to really know which handbook you need, just email us and we can guide you!

Do you have a large group of students in one classroom or do you have a small group class? I learn better with one-on-one based sessions with a teacher. Can you offer one-on-one instruction?

February 10, 2010

YES— We believe one-on-one lessons are very important for student pilots to understand what they are learning. In some cases, we do provide small group classes as necessary.

February 10, 2010

How many times can I fly per day? Do you always have an aircraft available?

February 10, 2010

I want to purchase a “Gift Certificate.” Do you offer any at Universal Air Academy?

February 10, 2010

YESGift Certificates are the best present that you can give to your friends or family members. Just contact us and ask for a “gift certificate.” We will ask you if you would like the gift to be an airplane flight or a helicopter flight. Many people get hooked and eventually become pilots a couple months later.
