Many people in the aviation world believe that from birth only three percent of the population possess the ideal characteristics needed to be a good pilot. Quick decision-making, endurance, experience, knowledge and being able to communicate and work with the crew as well as with the control tower are all equally important when it comes to being a pilot. For example, an experienced aircraft commander can look from one device to another 130 times in just one minute. Because of this, one of the skills taught to those studying at the Ulyanovsk Higher Civil Aviation School is how to efficiently organize and distribute time. For more than 75 years this institution has supplied the Russian air force with reliable servicemen. In order to produce such well-trained pilots, the Ulyanovsk Higher Civil Aviation School is equipped with modern flight simulators, training aircraft and experienced instructors.
