Roles of an airline pilot are quite challenging but can be performed effectively if the pilot is well-trained in all aspects. The primary role is certainly to fly the airplane safely from the departure airport to the destination. Through the air route there are other considerations as well that the pilot has to take care of. Some of the important considerations are operating the aircraft economically, ensuring smooth and efficient functioning, and taking care of time management.



Ensuring smooth and efficient functioning is an important aspect of the aeronautical skills. For a pilot these skills are very significant as they help to simplify the complex refinement of many diverse and challenging factors. Aeronautical skills cover proficiency in flying ability, cockpit management, safe decision making process, and effective crew co-ordination. Pilots are required to exercise these skills in a professional manner.



Time management is also very crucial when flying. This is because an aircraft works on the commands received by professionals on the ground level. These professionals guide the pilot through the air route and also keep him updated about the weather conditions, the height of flying, distance between the airplanes flying in the same range, and also distance left to the destination. They give a complete detail of the air traffic and monitor the movement in air. Depending on the guidelines and command received from the ground level, the pilot has to amend the movement and position of the airplane. In the process if even one fraction of a second is delayed it may cause an accident. Therefore, time management is something very crucial for a pilot.



Pilots also have to be smart enough to tackle all kind of issues in any kind of environment. To achieve this kind of effectiveness and professionalism they have to behold two main character traits, integrity and strength. Integrity is essential as this job requires high degree of honesty and strength is needed to resist external pressures in order to ensure smooth operation. Taking operational decisions at the right time is also an important aspect of their job and requires courage to modify any such decision as everything in the aircraft is dependent on them.



Pilots have to be proficient, skilled, and highly educated to take care of all the flight movements through the air route.
