Basic Propeller Aircraft For Military Aviator Training
A trainer is a class of aircraft designed specifically to facilitate in-flight training of pilots and aircrews. The use of a dedicated trainer aircraft with additional safety features - such as tandem flight controls, forgiving flight characteristics and a simplified cockpit arrangement - allows pilots-in-training to safely advance their real-time piloting, navigation and/or war fighting skills without the danger of overextending their abilities alone in a fully featured aircraft.
Stage I - Air Grading or Screening
Typically, contemporary military pilots learn initial flying skills in a light aircraft not too dissimilar from civilian training aircraft. In this Ab initio phase beside learning how to fly the aircraft, the pilot candidates are screened for mental and physical attributes. Aircraft used for this purpose include the Grob G-120A and PAC CT/4.
