Student Pilot Reveals Whats In Their Bags

It’s a mainstream topic to get to know what’s in an airliners’ pilot bag. Have you ever wondered what’s in a student pilot’s bag? What makes it so heavy?

If the standard training price is worth about, and a school offers it a marked down rate of say, 100K USD  then by all means double check the credibility of that school. Legitimate aviation schools charge expensively because of the facilities that will be involved in the training aren’t exactly low-cost. Remember that you will be taught how to fly so these schools must have state-of-the-art equipment to simulate the flying experience as close to the actual thing as possible. Of course, there will also be times that you will
