Having been flying, working and attending classes with intelligent officers and pilot since the beginning of this week. On my third day I decided that I was going to challenge myself to take up and to discover the world of aviation and safety and some of the procedure that has to take place before a plane starts moving on the runway.
To do so, I met with Lance Corporal Franky Derjaques -a soldier in the SPDF for six years.
Corporal Derjaques showed me the Airforce Twin otter and he gave me a brief knowledge on pre-flight measures.
The steps include:
After the twin otter, I learn about the procedure on a Dornier plane and a Y12 aircraft.
Later on when I was put to the test, I was able to identify a bad tyre unfit for flying for purposes.
