A successful pilot carries several must-haves to survive on a daily basis. As a creature of the sky, these things are necessary to carry out a job well done. The kit will help you enjoy your career in the aviation industry even more, and help you shrug off the stress and strain of the job.

Here’s what every pilot needs in their luggage.

The Aviator Shades

The aviator shades are more than just a tool to look appealing. They are ideal and crucial for flying because they enhance both colors and contrast.

They also offer technicolor sensations of warmth during flight. These shades are necessary during marginal weather conditions. Believe it or not, aviator shades have saved the lives of pilots numerous times.

Aviator shades are normally non-polarized so they don’t conflict with digital display systems. Keeping a pair in the flight bag at all times at all costs makes it easier to see when it’s a struggle to see the horizon.

The GPS-Enabled Gadget

The world of paperless cockpit has left aviators in need of gadgets that are friendly with the job. Using tablets or an iPad with ForeFlight subscriptions can help a pilot get used to the format for briefing the approach plates in Jeppesen Publications.

A 128-GB iPad is a useful gadget for optimal speed performance in the cockpit. Cellular-enabled ones also let you view your aircraft location because of its GPS capability. The good news is there’s no need for a data plan for the GPS feature to work.

The Hearing Protection

Hearing protection is necessary because of the pressurized cabin. A Bose A20, for instance, can help a pilot to never miss another radio transmission again. Such hearing protection are also required to offer clarity.

It’s necessary for pilots to ensure that they buy the correct connector for the aircraft they’re flying. A SoftTop can help you fly more than a couple hours at a time.

The most common headset plugs are the following:

  • 6-pin plug (LEMO)
  • Twin plugs (PJs)
  • Airbus plug (XLR)
  • Helicopter plug (U174)

The Torch

Having a flashlight that fits in your flight suit is always a good thing. Hanging it on your shirt collar provides you with a perfect kneeboard chart light.

This makes it easier for you to click it on and fly in the event of a total electrical failure. You can use the pilot-static system. You can even get some kinds of torches in a two-pack.

There are still other things that you need in your luggage, such as portable power, logbook pens, and an eye mask. At OMNI Airline Training Academy, we make sure you are in the loop about the must-haves for every pilot.
