Mistakes Every Student Pilot Makes



Student pilots make mistakes, just like anybody else. Nonetheless, it is essential that you learn from them and listen to any tips from the aviation school to help prevent these mistakes. Don't be discouraged. Keep on flying!


Rushing or skipping checklist items

Missing checklist items is incredibly dangerous. Unfortunately, it happens all the time. Hence, it is crucial to demonstrate the importance of being methodical and slowing down.


Exiting the runway too fast.

Especially in cases when ATC requests an expedited exit from the runway, students could get a little over-confident with their speed control.


Over-controlling the airplane.

Over-correcting for mistakes further aggravates the situation. Don't worry! With practice, students will usually get better at making small, correct inputs to fix their mistakes.


Not thinking before keying the mic on the radio.

Before you key the mic on the radio, think about what you need to say. When a new student forgets to think first, New students may end up rambling or sounding completely unsure of themselves if they forget to think first.
