Human Performance and Limitations- A SUCCESS! With a 88%

So I have been studying in between during this busy week, quite hard at times. Human Performance and Limitations is quite interesting and it deals with just that, the limitations of the human body in the air. I have my mother to thank for the interest in this subject, she is currently a nurse in training and every time I studied a particular disease or condition I would want to call her and ask her all about it!

There were some delays at the CAA today, the test was scheduled to start at 08:30 but I only got under way at about 08:50 (By now I was more nervous for being late to get to work than the subject itself). 26 Questions, done and dusted within 10 mins. An overall result of 88%, I could really not complain about that. Will go over the questions I got wrong when I get home later today.

So grateful that I am in perfect health, there are so many conditions that could hamper one from achieving their dream of becoming a pilot such as narcolepsy (the condition where a person just suddenly falls asleep). Scary stuff! Its a bit scary to delve deeper into the things that go wrong when you are at altitude but if you are prepared (this is where the PPL tests come in) you will be able to react effectively and perhaps save your own life and those of your passengers!

Im one of the lucky ones, I found my dream at the age of 8. Getting into the avaition industry has been a long journey for me, but I finally started that journey this year. Currently busy with my student license heading to my CPL. An Industrial Engineer by profession, a pilot wanna-be ALWAYS. Watch this space...

    Look at what else can go wrong at altitude:

    I hope this course covered gremlins on an aeroplane’s wing. If it didn’t then you’re basically just wasting your time because everyone knows that all decent and respectable flight schools cover gremlins on a wing.

    I found the remake!!!!

    Its from the movie Twilight The Movie. You have to rent it and watch it. Hopefully it will have as big an influence on you as Top Gun did.
