A pilot’s day often varies depending on the flight schedule, the air carrier he flies with, and the type of mission. In the morning, pilots often wake up early and plan their day in detail before flying. During this planning process, weather reports, flight route, fuel calculations and aircraft checklists are reviewed.

Pre-flight preparations include general control of the aircraft, engine tests and control of navigation systems. Additionally, accurate calculation of fuel quantity and payload is critical. Pilots meet with the flight crew to evaluate possible risks and changes on the route and determine a strategy on these issues.

During the flight, pilots are in constant communication with air traffic control. They must quickly adapt to changes on the route, weather conditions and other operational issues. They also maneuver carefully to maintain appropriate distance from other aircraft in the sky during flight.

After the flight, pilots usually perform final checks on the aircraft and fill out post-landing reports. If it is a night flight, the rest period becomes important and pilots plan appropriately for post-flight rest periods.

Pilots’ day is not limited to just flying; It is also important to follow current aviation technologies, attend regular training and continue their professional development. These details shape a rich daily life of a pilot, encompassing both technical and managerial aspects.
