Student Spotlight

Sometimes, the sky isn’t the limit—it’s just the beginning! From a young dreamer gazing at planes to a seasoned pilot soaring through the clouds, this is the journey of Roshan Yadav, who has turned a passion for aviation into a thrilling career. From exploring the highs and lows of life in the cockpit, meticulous pre-flight preparations to the exhilarating freedom of flying every day, Roshan Yadav throws light on how he enjoys flying. Whether you’re an aviation enthusiast or an aspiring pilot, the story of our learner is sure to inspire you and here’s a glimpse into the exciting world of flying. 

Roshan Yadav, who is a pilot by profession, is pursuing his online BCA from Manipal University Jaipur. We caught up in a candid conversation with him to explore the world of flying through his eyes. So, let’s delve in.  

“I was fascinated by planes since childhood” 

Roshan was always fascinated by airplanes and the idea of flying. Ever since he was a child, he would look up at the sky and watch airplanes soaring overhead, and he knew that he wanted to be a part of that world too. He did his research and discovered how it was like to become a pilot and became even more determined to pursue a career in aviation. 

“For me, the best part of being a pilot is the experience of flying. I never get tired of the feeling of soaring through the sky, and I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do it as part of my job. Every flight is a new adventure, and I love the sense of freedom,” he said.  

“Every day as a pilot is new and challenging” 

Have you ever wondered what a day in the life of a pilot looks like? Well, here’s what Roshan explained. 

“My daily routine as a pilot keeps changing depending on my flight schedule. However, when I am assigned a flight, my routine typically involves a few hours of preparation before departure. This includes reviewing the flight plan, checking for weather conditions, and briefing the crew members. Once we’re in the air, my main focus is operating the flight safely and efficiently, while also ensuring that the passengers are comfortable and well taken care of. After landing, I complete post-flight procedures and return home for some much-needed rest and relaxation.” 

“I enjoy shorter flights” 

“While I enjoy all aspects of flying, I particularly enjoy short flights. They offer a level of flexibility and convenience that longer flights can’t match. Short flights allow me to rest and recharge between flights, and I find them less exhausting than longer flights,” he added. 

“Unexpected challenges have made me a better pilot” 

The life of a pilot can be quite challenging, be it the training or the flight itself. It is important for pilots to possess certain qualities and characteristics to ensure a safe flight. Roshan Yadav recollected one such incident in the past that changed his perspective about flying. 

“I cannot forget that moment during my training, when an engine of the plane caught fire. It was a scary and chaotic moment, but it also taught me a valuable lesson about staying calm and focused on the face of unexpected challenges. I’m grateful for the experience, as it helped me become a better and more confident pilot,” he said. 

“I love flying to Nepal” 

Every pilot has a favorite destination to fly to, and for Roshan, it’s the country he belongs to- Nepal. “As a proud Nepalese, my favorite destination to fly to is Nepal,” he said. 

Amidst his busy schedule as a pilot, Roshan zest for continuous learning led him to pursue an online BCA degree. 

“I’m pursuing this degree as part of my ongoing efforts to advance my career in aviation to become a captain. I believe that the knowledge and skills I’m gaining through this program will help me grow in this field,” he said. 

Here’s what Roshan had to say for aspiring pilots. 

“My number one piece of advice for someone looking to become a pilot is to be prepared to work hard and stay focused. This profession requires a high level of dedication, attention to detail, and responsibility. My other advice would be to stay calm and composed, even in stressful situations, and to always prioritize safety above all else.”
