Before I start this video I want to clear up some things. I am not a professional flight instructor so I do not know exactly what is going in their minds and I do not want to put my words in their mouth. That having said, In 2012 I was a student pilot of an integrated pilot program. In this learning process I received a lot of important feedback. I realised…. that this feedback made me the person who I am today, as a pilot but also apart from that. The things I learned all came from flight instructors I have been flying with. I noticed that a lot of my colleagues have the same experience and exactly the same way of thinking as I have at the moment and that is why I would like to share that with my amazing audience, you! Also, during my work as a ‘flight instructor’ at the simulator centre on the B737, I sometimes noticed behaviour I did not really like. As I want you guys to learn something, I will tell you exactly the things I learned. Especially for young people who want to become a pilot, this video might help you during your flight training, behaviour wise.
One of the first things which drive flight instructors crazy is the word combination: Yes, BUT…! Trust me, If you say this to an instructor you won’t be making friends and it will make your life way harder. Flight instructors are trying to teach you something by pointing something out. Something you did wrong or different than they want to see it. If everytime they give you feedback you have to show your on ‘’thoughts’’ is means you are not accepting what they have to say and that you are not taking any responsibility for your actions. More important, what you are actually doing is trying to find an excuse for your mistake. By doing so you basically tell yourself that you are doing fine…. As you probably know, ‘’doing fine’’ is not enough if you want to become an airline pilot, or any kind of pilot. You have to be able and willing to learn from your mistakes, that is the only way to improve. Make mistakes, but learn from them and try to get all the feedback just in order to improve yourself. If you are in flight training and your feedback was only positive then you better wake up and ask your instructor what you can improve. There is always something to learn!

I was a student pilot of an integrated pilot program from 2011 till 2013. I received a lot of important feedback and this feedback made me the person who I am today, as a pilot but also apart from that. The things I learned during my flight training came from flight instructors I have been flying with and I noticed that a lot of my airline pilot colleagues have a similar (or exactly the same) way of thinking as I have at the moment and that is why I made this video. I will tell you about 5 behaviour things which would not really be appreciated by your flight instructor while you are in flight training.
2. Have an attitude
3. Not knowing SOP’s (Standard Operating Procedures)
4. Not being prepared
5. Not taking responsibility
