AVIATION HEADSETS

A top-quality aviation headset is arguably the most critical piece of equipment for a flight student. The cockpit environment can be incredibly noisy, with engine, wind, and airframe noises creating a challenging environment for communication. A good aviation headset provides clear communication by significantly reducing background noise and protecting the student’s hearing. Noise-cancelling technology, comfort for long flights, and durability are key features to look for. Brands like Bose, David Clark, and Lightspeed are popular choices, offering a range of headsets to fit different preferences and budgets.

Kneeboards

A kneeboard is a small, flat surface that straps to a pilot’s thigh, providing a stable platform for charts, notes, and electronic devices. It’s an invaluable tool for flight planning and in-flight navigation, helping to keep information easily accessible and organized. Kneeboards come in various sizes and styles, including options designed specifically for use with tablets and smartphones.

Me and my sister both got our private pilot license’s in Essence flight academy, my instructor was Alex, one the best instructors! their team was great in assisting me with anything i needed or any questions i had along the way. And they were pretty flexible with scheduling too, they had really good simulators that i was able to use, i flew a lot with diamond airplane and they were maintaining them in very good conditions.
