I am Tim Berger, flight instructor at Skywings and First Officer on the Embraer at KLM. After initial flight training, I started my flying career at TUIFly Belgium on the Boeing 737 NG. I did my flight instructor course while working at TUI and held this license for well over a year before I started as an instructor at Skywings.
After starting your flight training, things may not always turn out the way you had hoped for. A flight school sometimes falls into the trap of putting “production” above quality, especially in the last few years where pilot demand was soaring. Students often feel frustrated about their personal progress, the continuity of their training program or about the fact that they feel like a “number” having signed a watertight training contract. Let’s take a look at the most common questions we get from people who want to transfer to Skywings Flight Training.
Becoming a pilot is and remains a childhood dream for many youngsters. And rightly so. It is a profession that speaks to the imagination and gives an enormous variety. In order to succeed in training as a professional pilot and to eventually find a job, a broad package of basic skills is required.
Faced with the challenge of organizing classroom sessions safely, with minimal risk, we opted to go beyond the legal requirement of limiting the number of students per classroom. We opted for active elimination of harmful viruses and bacteria from the air through the use of indirect UV-C light purification.
