Breaking Stereotypes: Woman at the Controls of an Aircraft

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

Most likely the first association with an airplane pilot will be a male in an accurate uniform. The picture is not completely inaccurate since about 95% of all active pilots in the world are in fact male. photo-2020-03-05-10-41-21

However, there is a small, but brave part of this profession that is growing every year – pilot women. SmartLynx Airlines pilot Irina Talajeva explains how it is to be a woman in the aviation industry.

From a Desk Job to a Pilot Cabin Aviation and planes came into my life through an enjoyable experience from an early age, when I often went to see my grandmother by a plane. At that time there were very few examples of female pilots in the aviation world and relatively little was told about them. It was simply not a profession attributed to women. However, as time went on, I began to remember my childhood dream and imagine what it would feel like if my next office were 10 kilometers high – above the clouds. My very first full-time job was also related to airlines.

It all contributed to my inner dream of becoming a pilot and pushed me quietly down that path. In 2012, I joined the SmartLynx Training Program, successfully completed all training and exams, and became First Officer in the same company. In Aviation, Punctuality is More Important than Gender The path to a pilot career for a woman is the same as for a man. First you have to graduate from the academy and then you have to master specific aircraft control skills. It takes about 2 to 3 years for both. Perhaps in the learning process women get to prove themselves a little more because we are used to studying harder just to show that we can be at least as good as man. As a result, stubbornness even prepares us a little better. In any industry today, the specialist should not be judged by gender, but the ability and punctuality. And speaking of skills, working as a pilot requires exemplary abilities in multitasking and communication.

Time for Women to Conquer the Cockpit This is the right time for more women to enter this profession. Today there is a worldwide shortage of qualified pilots and it is for this reason that I believe the number of female pilots could double or even triple in the next decade. Regardless, no one is given any discounts. After all, piloting a plane is a team effort and a big responsibility. 1+1 should always be more than 2 in the cockpit. Pilots must work closely together when flying the aircraft, giving instructions to flight crew and of course keeping good communication with air traffic services on the ground. As for me, it is a dream job with a breathtaking view through the window, an opportunity to see the world from the glaciers of Iceland to the deserts of Africa. This is not a standard job with working hours from 9 to 18, on the contrary it is a constant adventure. Moreover, it is no secret that you can make a quite good money in it. I believe that over a time female pilots will no longer be admired as a rarity, but will become close to the first thought when imagining a pilot.

Examination of Bek Air Crash: Extreme Wellbeing Infringement Found

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

Because of an examination propelled into the Bek Air Fokker 100 accident in December 2019, the Kazakhstan Avionics Organization (KAA) has recognized various serious security infringement by the transporter and its group, in the wake of looking at the aircraft.

One of the fundamental infringement is identified with the airworthiness of the Bek Air armada, which was portrayed as poor. Especially, the terrible state of airplane is connected to aeroplane support logs which are missing or are inadequate.

Preceding the accident, Bek Air worked nine aeroplanes of the sort the time of which ran between 24 – 30 years. The Fokker 100 aeroplane type is generally old and its creation was stopped more than 20 years prior in 1997. Thusly, it is incredibly hard to discover basic extra parts available nowadays.

Russian Avionics Insider gives this may have been one reason behind the issues with a help record as the carrier was supplanting harmed or terminated segments with parts from its other aeroplane and neglected to follow it appropriately. All things considered, poor support log isn't all. Much progressively extreme infringement is identified with aeroplane motors.

The maker of motors controlling Fokker 100, Move Royce, have no data on the upgrade of these motors since they were placed into activities in Kazakhstan. Move Royce additionally detailed that there is no such technique requiring the evacuation of an information plate and the organization didn't approve such a procedure. Because of the way that few motors were found to have a similar issue, all aeroplane of Bek Air are under doubt.

This method, called clean wing check, was presented as an airworthiness order (Promotion) after the 1993 accident in Skopje, North Macedonia. It requires to check the wing of a Fooker 100 at three focuses along the main edge on the upper surface, the lower surface and the front of the wing. In the event that the team part discovers ice, all the basic surfaces must be de-frosted.

With respect to now, the carrier remains grounded and is under investigation.

What Does It Take to Turn into an Aircraft Pilot with MPL?

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

What does it take to be a carrier pilot? Could a person with as meagre as a year and a half of pilot preparing become a certified co-pilot on an important aeroplane type, for instance, Airbus A320 or Boeing B737? The response to this inquiry is certain. At that point, you may pose the accompanying inquiry: how could a youngster accomplish abilities, vital for a carrier pilot, over such a brief timeframe? The appropriate response is – Multi-Group Pilot Permit.

MPL as an Elective Pilot Preparing Idea In 2006, the Global Common Flying Association (ICAO) has built up an elective pilot preparing idea, called Multi-Team Pilot Permit (MPL), explicitly equipped towards preparing of carrier pilots. The thought behind this new preparing idea was to concentrate the preparation on the genuine aptitudes required in a cutting edge carrier cockpit and to streamline preparing, by fusing as a great part of the advances in instructive science, preparing equipment (for example engineered flight preparing gadgets) and data innovation as could be expected under the circumstances. A noteworthy part of such centred preparing is the concentration around carrier activities and a shorter preparing time contrasted with customary projects. With MPL course it is workable for a hopeful future pilot to get prepared for a First Official's situation over a time of roughly a year and a half. The general structure of the MPL pathway is isolated into 4 stages, trailed by base preparing and line instructional classes.

Diminished Air conditioning Hours One of the significant contrasts of MPL, contrasted with customary pilot preparing ways, is that MPL diminishes light flying machine flight preparing on a less appropriate flying machine and adds reenactment to the preparation schedule. The primary guideline of this alteration is to energize the early utilization of reenactment, implanting group coordination and TEM standards into the preparation procedure. The utilization of the most noteworthy proficiency guaranteeing preparing devices, joined with the arrangement of preparing airship all the more firmly lined up with carrier cockpits (level screen shows), drives preparing explicitly towards the aircraft flight deck. There is a general conclusion among avionics specialists and devotees that there are some learning destinations which must be prepared in a light flying machine. In any case, no connection can be found between more long periods of flying machine preparing and improved execution during the Underlying Working Experience (IOE). On the other hand, experience has demonstrated that all the more preparing in test systems, which reproduce transport classification airship and their flight model, successfully improves manual aeroplane flying abilities. MPL preparing centres around type rating matters, for example, a point by point introduction of Airbus A320 frameworks, including the assessment, and the functional part with Able preparing.

„Just in Time" Competency-Based Information The hypothetical piece of the MPL preparing program stays indistinguishable from that of the customary pilot preparing prospectus. Be that as it may, to pursue the rule of competency-based preparing and to move towards MPL theory (in spite of the previously mentioned stock-based obtaining of this information), situation based preparing is frequently conveyed. For instance, as a major aspect of exercise arrangement, you should work through the exercise depiction which contains an area alluding to the supporting aeronautical information important to effectively lead specific preparing errands in that exercise. In this way, hypothesis points are coordinated with viable exercise. Such "in the nick of time" competency-based information obtaining is unmistakably progressively appealing contrasted with the customary stock-based educating, where the hypothetical part has no immediate connection to the viable application.

A mix of IFR, MCC and JOC As it has been referenced already, the MPL program is partitioned into 4 stages and one of them (Essential Stage) is uncommonly devoted to the progress from single-pilot activity to multi-team activity and propelled instrument flying. In this stage, an understudy builds up particular and altogether different pilot abilities one after another. IFR part builds up a satisfactory frame of mind when flying and presents with instrument ordinary and anomalous methodology from the rundown of an aircraft's standard working strategies (SOPs). MCC part enables a hopeful future pilot to function as a component of the group in basic leadership, correspondence, the preoccupation of errands and utilization of agendas, shared supervision, collaboration and to have the option to offer help all through all phases of the trip under any conditions. JOC preparing will give a smooth change from a cylinder motor airship to stream carrier activities. Such a blend of three distinct subjects led all the while awards the best preparing outcomes to an understudy pilot, as it explicitly fits into the picked carrier vocation.

Broadened Type Rating Notwithstanding, one of the primary MPL contrasts, contrasted with the other customary pilot preparing pathways, is the measure of test system time. MPL is vigorously testing system based, especially on the kind of flying machine you will be flying (for example Airbus A320 or Boeing 737). Since your MPL preparing prospectus is carrier explicit and airship explicit, toward the finish of your examinations, you ought to be incredibly acquainted with your enlisting organization's SOPs. Additionally, you will be consequently type evaluated toward the finish of the course, setting aside you cash and time required for a different kind rating. With the all-inclusive hours of the entire flight preparing process, you, as an MPL understudy, will have the option to scout your "best fit" for a pilot calling from the very beginning of your instructional class.

GoAir's troubles underscore the serious pilot shortage in Indian aviation

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

In February this year, IndiGo, India's largest airline by fleet and domestic market share, announced that it would cut up to 2 percent of its schedule as it battles crew shortages. The airline had initially blamed the network-wide cancellations on the NOTAMs and diversions triggered by bad weather impacting crew duty time. A few days ago, GoAir cancelled flights across its network.

While the number was smaller than IndiGo, the impact is higher since GoAir is one-fifth of IndiGo in size by the fleet. GoAir, too, blamed the crew shortage on excess utilisation of pilots due to diversions and bad weather across the country. While for both IndiGo and GoAir shortage of pilots and the bad weather and diversions are indeed part of the reasons, what comes out is how precarious the pilot situation is in the country! Interestingly, this comes in a year when one large airline in the country collapsed and the overall fleet growth has been modest, unlike previous years. This November, the government said that there are currently 436 expat pilots in the country. IndiGo has 239 while Alliance Air and GoAir have 64 each. Spicejet has 33, Trujet operates with 21 expat pilots while Vistara and Star Air have 8 and 4 respectively. Yet, pilot shortages plague the industry and leads to schedule disruption which eventually impacts the flying public.

A severe shortage It is estimated that currently there are 8,000 pilots in India for a commercial fleet of 650+ aircraft. Both Airbus and Boeing have been gung ho about the potential in India. While this year, both the leading manufacturers did not specify exact projection for India, last year Boeing had said that it foresees a demand of 2,380 aircraft for India by 2038. A year earlier, Airbus had predicted a demand of 1,750 aircraft for India by 2036. At the current ratio of pilots and commercial aircraft fleet, the requirement for pilots will balloon in excess of 28,000 in the next two decades. IndiGo has a large orderbook of 700+ aircraft while Spicejet has 200+ B737 MAX aircraft on order. Go Air has nearly 100 more aircraft on order and the two TATA airlines - Vistara and AirAsia India have been looking at opportunities to make a mark on the aviation scene. Airlines must run like well-oiled machines and while each part is equally important and irreplaceable, pilots are the most expensive in the operations set-up comprising airport staff, cabin crew, engineering staff and cockpit crew. In an environment like India, where airlines operate on margins as thin as a boarding pass, having anything in excess in an overhead which can be best avoided.

What are the reasons that led to this situation?

Volatile delivery schedule: This year was characterised with problems for both the Airbus A320neo family and the B737 MAX. With an uncertain delivery schedule, airlines seemed to be cautious to recruit pilots and have them not fly as many hours as permitted by the regulator means huge expenditure for the airline. In the past, airlines the world over have offered leave without pay in cases where the airlines had excess pilots. Finding a right balance has always been a challenge when delivery schedules have gone for a toss. Availability of Jet Airways pilots: As Jet Airways suspended operations in April this year, the market was flooded with pilots as well as planes. While SpiceJet took the maximum planes which earlier operated with Jet Airways, the pilots went to SpiceJet, Vistara and others. While SpiceJet and Vistara had the B737s which earlier operated for Jet Airways, IndiGo and GoAir operate the A320 family aircraft and the B737 pilots had to undergo type-rating to qualify for the A320 family operations. The country did not have ample simulators and training facilities to fulfil the sudden demand and that has led to airlines having pilots on their rolls but not yet certified to fly the aircraft in their fleet.Attrition: India is surrounded by markets which are also growing at breakneck speeds. Airlines from the middle east and south-east Asia have been growing at faster rates than airlines in India. Often, these airlines are profitable and give out handsome bonuses and packages. Coupled with the call of foreign shores, Indian pilots have spread across the region from UAE to Vietnam!

Will things change in 2020?

That's too difficult to predict. Why? Because there hasn't been any change in situation with either the Pratt & Whitney powered A320neo family or the B737MAX aircraft which would comprise the bulk of aircraft inductions in India going forward. In this case, none of the airlines operating knows the future of inductions. IndiGo and GoAir are under scrutiny from the regulator - Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) for engines while Spicejet has a lot of aircraft ready with Boeing. As and when issues are resolved, there could be rapid inductions in Indian skies and that again would put a strain on the pilots and their availability. In absence of a clear date of induction, airlines would be cautious in inducting pilots and rightly so since it adds to the cost. Most airlines are trying to stitch tie-ups with aviation academies for training or even for type-rating, so have a steady flow of pilots who can join their fleet. Yet, pilot training is not everything - India is a case where there are many pilots who haven't found jobs and there are airlines that haven't found enough pilots. The bridge could well be a finishing school like in other professions! - Source CNBC TV 18

Airbus Secures Nearly 200 Orders for Its Aircraft in One Day

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

Airbus is getting a charge out of developing an interest for its flying machine programs during Dubai Airshow 2019. During eighteenth November the European planemaker reported two significant arrangements with world's driving aircraft: Emirates and Air Arabia.

Emirates is a long-standing Airbus client which works the greatest Airbus A380 armada on the planet. The aircraft has 112 Airbus A380s, these involve almost a portion of its all-out armada. At first, Emirates had put in a request for 162 superjumbo planes, notwithstanding, in February 2019, it diminished the request up to 123 units. This decrease, thusly, was one of the essential reasons why Airbus chose to end the generation of the A380 model.

"Supplementing our A380s and 777s, the A350s will give us included operational adaptability regarding limit, range and organization. Essentially, we are fortifying our plan of action to give productive and agreeable air transport administrations to, and through, our Dubai centre point", said His Highness Sheik Ahmed canister Saeed Al Maktoum.

Air Arabia is an all-Airbus administrator with a complete armada of 54 A320 Family flying machine including the A321LR. All flying machine will include an agreeable single-class lodge with one of the most liberal seat pitches today.

Vistara to Draft B787-9 Dreamliners, A321 for Long stretch Worldwide Flights

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

Vistara has included nine Boeing 737-800NG and four A320neo to its armada up until this point and got three of the 50 Airbus A320neo family flying machine it requested a year age.

Goodbye Singapore Aircrafts (SIA) joint endeavor bearer Vistara will enlist two Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner and one A321neo this financial to dispatch medium and long stretch global flights. Trying to scale up its abroad flights, the aircraft has just gone into key codeshare organizations with worldwide bearers like Joined Carriers and Japan Carriers. Vistara President Leslie Thng revealed to IANS that the aircraft has augmented the extent of the current concurrence with Singapore Carriers and SilkAir to give an all-encompassing worldwide system to its clients. Growing forcefully its tasks, the carrier is relied upon to practically twofold its armada size before the finish of the current monetary completion Walk 31, 2020. Its quick development has enabled the full-administration transporter to expand its week by week flight check to 1,400, up 70 percent contrasted with 800 flights per week in Spring this year.

"Our armada has expanded by more than 50 percent up until this point and the size will have nearly multiplied before the finish of this budgetary year. Every last bit of it mirrors our responsibility to developing Vistara in scale and size, which is our top need," Thng said. The carrier has so far gotten three of the 50 Airbus A320neo family air ship it requested a year ago. "Over the most recent seven months, we have added 13 flying machine to our armada, including 9 Boeing 737-800NG and four A320neo. We have just gotten three of the 50 air ship from the Airbus A320neo family that we had requested a year ago, and six more A320neo are normal in the following two months," Thng said.

While he stays bullish on Indian flying, Thng communicated worry over air terminal framework limitations. "Infrastructural difficulties, for example, runway deficiency, space requirements, limit limitations, and so on need a lot of consideration. It is, maybe, the greatest issue that hinders the development of the Indian flying biological system today," he said. Vistara Boss needs the administration to bring plane fuel under the GST system as it will give a level playing field to the business that in any case has the absolute most noteworthy information costs. "ATF is one of the greatest cost givers for any carrier, and diverse state charges spike its cost significantly higher," he contended.

First Flight of Ilyushin IL-114-300 Postponed until Late 2020

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

Ilyushin, which is a piece of the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC), has uncovered more insights regarding the status of its IL-114-300 traveller turboprop program, which it says is continuing towards its first flight "in late 2020".

The IL-114-300, which is a refreshed form of the first Ilyushin IL-114 that, in the Soviet Union time, were delivered at an airship industrial facility at Tashkent in the now-autonomous Republic of Uzbekistan. The overhauled Russia-created rendition will be fueled by present-day TV7-117ST-01 motors.

Besides, Russia' State Transport Leasing Corporation (GTLK), one of the administration's primary instruments for the financing of locally fabricated airship, has communicated an enthusiasm for 50 Ilyushin IL-114-300s, saying it is "prepared to rent these aeroplanes to carrier clients beginning 2025," as per Grudinin, who surveys the quick market interest for the sort at around 60 flying machine.

"Other than," he proceeds," Indian clients, to be specific HAL [Hindustan Aeronautics Limited] are truly intrigued by the aeroplane's generation. We are currently explaining diverse participation plans, including the localisation of the generation of air ship parts in India. Household air travel between various states is growing rapidly in India, so turboprops of such class will be sought after."

Alongside that, the Russian flying machine gives a more prominent range – exactly 5,000 km, versus the ATR's 3,600. Three traveller limit choices of 64, 52 and 50 seats, with an expanded gear compartment, are being worked on.

Sequential creation of the IL-114-300 includes four locales: Voronezh Aircraft Production Association, Aviastar-SP (Ulyanovsk), Sokol (Nizhny Novgorod) and RSK MiG's Lukhovitsy office (close to Moscow). These locales are experiencing broad updates with new hardware and last get together is being set up at Lukhovitsy, which will be outfitted with a computerized mechanical production system.

The program's proceeding with a delay has come about in Krasnoyarsk-based territorial aircraft KrasAvia, one of the IL-114-300's potential clients, presently considering the securing rather than three ATR-72-500 turboprops to supplant its outdated Antonov A 24 and A 26 sorts.

Qatar Airways

#Aviation #pilot training Abroad #sunsea

Qatar Airways is arranging a code-share association with IndiGo, a move that will channel more traffic from the quickly developing Indian air-head out the market to the Gulf transporter's system.

"It isn't something about purchasing a stake, it's business," Chief Executive Officer Akbar Al Baker said in a meeting in Kuwait on Tuesday, alluding to a declaration made arrangements for Nov. 7.

Qatar Airways has been hoping to extend in the quickly developing Indian market, yet plans to begin another bearer there have been disappointed over-rules encompassing outside proprietorship.

Rather, the aircraft has asked nearby specialists to incidentally enable it to include more seats high-volume courses to fill the hole left by Jet Airways, an accomplice of opponent Etihad Airways, which became bankrupt in April.

IndiGo has risen as the greatest Indian aircraft following the breakdown of Jet Airways.

A week ago, the transporter requested 300 limited body planes from Airbus SE — one of the European plane creator's greatest ever bargains.

Qatar Airways could earn back the original investment inside the following two years, the CEO stated, significantly after the entire year misfortunes expanded by close to ten times on higher fuel costs and a flimsier provincial economy.

The transporter has additionally been influenced by an intense working condition brought about by Saudi-drove airspace terminations.

"We are currently back to our pre-bar development, and we trust that we will come to productivity soon," Al Baker said.
