Life as a Student Pilot
There is no sugarcoating it, in an accelerated pilot training program, life as a student pilot isn’t easy. After all, you are learning to become a commercial airline pilot. And at AeroGuard, you are training to become one of the best.
For this reason, we have worked hard to turn AeroGuard into one of the best flight schools in the nation when it comes to supporting students, guiding them, and enabling their success.
How AeroGuard Supports Your Success
In creating our student support infrastructure, we looked at other major flight schools and identified where their students were struggling the most. What we discovered is that physically flying the plane is not the area which most cadets find difficult. Instead, it’s the knowledge portion of their training where students need a little extra help. When students do not receive strong academic support, these struggles often cause students to fall behind and eventually drop out.
At AeroGuard, we have created an academic support environment to try and prevent this from happening to our students.
Academic Advisory Program
Our academic support programs are lead by an academic advisor whose sole purpose is to see that you are successful. We want you to master the material so that you pass your FAA checkrides the first time, every time.
With the AeroGuard academic advisory program, you always have somewhere to go anytime you have questions or frustrations as you study. This is different than most flight schools where studying is strictly done independently.
If additional support is needed beyond the traditional academic advisory, we offer struggling student support and performance improvement plans which provide personalized help. Students who participate in these programs almost always pass their next tests and excel with further training.
That is it! The day is already over. Looking back, it may feel like it passed in the blink of an eye. Your assigned missions could be either a flight mission or simulator mission but for the 8 to 10 months of your accelerated training program, life is going to look similar to this.
Before you know it, you will graduate and become a paid Certified Flight Instructor. The next step after that is to begin your career with our airline partner, SkyWest Airlines.
