Will a “Learner” Pilot Operate a Flight?
Yes, they can. Following the pilot-in-training’s completion of both classroom and simulator training with a specific aircraft model, he or she will fly under the supervision of the training captain for a set period.
This happens in real life when an aircraft is in flight with passengers on board. While it may appear frightening to instruct “learner” pilots while they are engaged in typical activities, this is the most effective method to prepare them.
