Learn Learn Learn. It is all about becoming a better pilot, and learning how to always get home. As a pilot, you realize that no matter what happens you will never stop learning in life… about flight, about yourself, and about life.
One of the most important lessons of this short, is something we try and teach every day at Limitless Aviation… Do not ever be afraid of controlled airspace and talking to Air traffic control. ATC is there to help us, and serve us as pilots. There have been thousands of lives saved since the history of aviation, simply by a controller guiding a pilot in trouble to the ground. Lost, blind, in an emergency, getting low on fuel, or getting trapped by weather… ATC can make sure you get to where you are certain to get home safely.
The following video is an amazing account of a pilot caught in a precarious situation, and how ATC helped him get through being trapped above the clouds (VFR on top) and what it takes as a pilot, mostly humility, to get past a trouble scenario. There is a ton of great information in the short, pay attention, and become a better aviator.
