Pilots often keep a lot of equipment on hand with them when they climb into the cockpit. From kneeboards to charts, flight computers and global positioning systems, there’s a lot you can buy and a lot you have to keep track of.
If you’re a new pilot or are looking at riding along on a friend or family member’s aircraft, you are going to need a headset. With a bit of luck the aircraft’s owner will have provided a headset for each passenger seat.
Whether you’ve decided to do it for fun or as a career change, learning to fly is a significant undertaking. It involves weeks of time in the cockpit, and months spent understanding the theory and regulations that help you fly safely and legally.
Have you always wanted to fly? You don’t have to train to become a commercial pilot in order to discover the joys of flying your own airplane. Recreational flying allows you to enjoy the pleasures of the sky without committing to a new career.
