Once you are an experienced flyer, you might want to think about becoming a flight instructor. Burt will show you how he teaches people about flying procedures and techniques in the air. You will also see the classroom side of learning to fly and the Ground School lessons covering things like navigation, radio procedures, and flying regulations. You will go to a hangar and learn about plane maintenance and the typical rundown of preparation for a flight, too. You will probably be able to meet and talk with flight engineers, mechanics, or an airport tower controller if you would like.
