Be a pilot

The dream of flight. To see the world from a bird's eye view – is that what you wish to do?

Be a pilot focuses on next year's AERO Friedrichshafen on initial, advanced and continuing training of pilots. There are several questions that need to be answered before becoming a pilot and many obstacles to be overcome – educational requirements, qualification tests and financing to name just a few.
Different training organizations will present themselves at the show in Foyer West towards hall A3 and inform about different possibilities.

In order to assess future pilots in terms of their aptitude and abilities, Aviation Media & IT GmbH has developed a specific computer-based screening tool. Capacitive, psychomotor and knowledge-based performance areas relevant for pilot aptitude assessment will be checked.

As part of the „Be a pilot“ activities, Messe Friedrichshafen and the Airline Test Training Center (ATTC) as well as our media partners aerokurier and will invite all those interested to undergo such a screening to find out if they have the necessary aptitude to become a pilot. Screening will be free of charge and available at aerokurier's booth (#101) in Hall A3 on all four days of the trade show.

Furthermore, flight simulators will be available at the booths of the following companies:

Presicion Flight Controls (FW-BP05)

Alsim (A6-303)

Tech Sim (A6-415)
