Flying commercial airlines offers freedom of travel and the excitement of flying. Yet, it can’t be taken lightly, since it involves being responsible for people’s lives. Almost everything pilots do is for the safety of their passengers and crew. Before takeoff, pilots perform many tasks. They check flight plans, weather conditions, and all controls and systems in the cockpit. Obviously, pilots must be highly detail-oriented. They must never panic and remain in control. If the plane experiences extreme turbulence mid-flight, pilots must know how to escape it. To become a pilot, you must first pass written exams, an interview, and health checks. Then, you go abroad for one year of flight training. Back at home, you train for your specific plane model. Finally comes the flight test. If all goes well, you become a first officer. 【題組】36.
