Collaboration of Indonesia and Turkey on N245

PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) and Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) signed a “Framework Agreement” on 06 July calling upon bilateral collaboration between the two aviation vendors.

In its official press release, TAI states that the agreement will see TAI collaborate with PTDI on the latter’s CN-235-based N245 commuter aircraft and N219 utility aircraft. Besides technical support, activities will also include joint marketing and other business initiatives. PTDI and TAI will also cooperation in unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), aerostructures and development in other areas of aeronautics. The Framework Agreement follows a memorandum-of-understanding (MoU) signed by PTDI and TAI at the 2017 International Defence Industry Fair (IDEF), which took place in Istanbul in May.

Jakarta hopes that the N245 and N219, which it considers programs of strategic importance, will draw upon Indonesia’s domestic requirements, which are borne from both public and private sector users. In fact, both programs draw upon existing designs, helping PTDI control the development cost overhead and, in turn, acquisition costs. Traction in the Indonesian market (with its 16 commercial airlines) could provide these aircraft with scale from the onset, making them competitive in the global market

Sekolah Pilot dan 3 Hal Yang Harus Disiapkan

Persiapan diri adalah kunci kesuksesan di segala hal, termasuk juga mempersiapkan dirimu untuk masuk ke sekolah pilot. Kamu mungkin bertanya, “apa itu penting untuk latihan sebelum masuk ke sekolah?”. Percaya atau tidak, mempersiapkan dirimu dengan baik dari awal akan memberikan keunggulan di saat kamu belajar di sekolah pilot dan menjadi pilot yang handal di masa depan.

Ada 3 hal yang bisa kamu siapkan sebelum kamu masuk ke sekolah pilot:

#1. Belajar Kemampuan Dasar Penerbangan

Belajar cara menerbangkan pesawat merupakan bekal awal yang baik sebelum kamu masuk ke sekolah pilot. Untuk belajar menerbangkan pesawat, lakukanlah dengan Flight Simulator (simulasi terbang). Terbang dengan simulator tidak sama 100% dengan menerbangkan pesawat sungguhan, tetapi teknologi simulator yang bisa dijalankan di komputer personal (PC) sudah semakin baik. Prepar3D (sebelumnya dikenal dengan Microsoft Flight Simulator) dan X-Plane adalah software simulator yang paling terkenal. Kamu bisa mengunduh software ini dan menerbangkan pesawat dari Cessna sampai ke Boeing 747.

Kalau kamu sudah mahir menggunakan software di atas, kamu bisa menambah level mu dengan menggunakan alat penerbangan seperti Yoke and Rudder dari Saitek. Dibandingkan dengan keyboard, terbang di simulator dengan menggunakan Yoke dan Rudder akan memberikan kesan lebih realistis.

Dengan flight simulator, anda bisa belajar prinsip dasar manuver pesawat, kontrol utama pesawat (seperti yoke, rudder pedals, flaps), flight pattern, dll. Di kelas persiapan sekolah pilot AVIASI28, kami menggunakan Flight Simulator untuk mengenalkan murid-murid kami terhadap kemampuan dasar terbang.

#2. Bicara Seperti Pilot

Bahasa inggris adalah bahasa resmi di dunia penerbangan. Anda bisa menjadi orang Indonesia, menerbangkan pesawat Boeing, untuk maskapai nasional Indonesia. Tetapi, anda tetap harus bicara dengan bahasa inggris. Selain itu, semua buku dan materi pembelajaran yang akan anda terima di sekolah pilot akan disajikan dengan bahasa inggris. Kalau kemampuan bahasa inggrismu lemah, kamu akan kesusahan mengikuti tempo belajar di sekolah pilot.

Oleh karena itu, tidak ada salahnya sebelum masuk ke sekolah pilot, perkuatlah bahasa inggrismu. Tontonlah film dan bacalah buku bahasa inggris. Ini akan membiasakan telinga dan pikiranmu untuk berinteraksi dengan menggunakan bahasa inggris.

Kamu juga bisa mendengarkan percakapan antara pilot dan ATC tower secara live di

#3. Tonton Online Video

Video merupakan cara terbaik untuk belajar. Kamu bisa belajar dari Youtube dengan mencari kanal yang memainkan berbagai video tentang penerbangan. Pastikan kamu mencari video yang memberikan gambaran pengendalian pesawat terbang, pengaruh cuaca, komunikasi antara pilot, dan video-video penerbangan yang menarik untuk kamu tonton.


Belajar di sekolah pilot merupakan sebuah tantangan. Oleh karena itu, sebelum kamu masuk ke sekolah pilot, alangkah baiknya kamu mempersiapkan dirimu terlebih dahulu. Kamu bisa belajar kemampuan dasar penerbangan dari flight simulator dan menonton video penerbangan. Selain itu, kamu harus melatih kemampuan bahasa inggrismu dan mempelajari istilah-istilah yang dipakai di dunia penerbangan. Dengan mempersiapkan dirimu dengan baik, kehidupanmu di sekolah pilot akan menjadi pengalaman yang menyenangkan.

Fahrul Razi Aced Perkasa Flight School Tests

Fahrul Razi graduated from AVIASI28 on 8 December 2016. Just two months later, February was a very challenging and exciting month for Razi. In February, Fahrul successfully passed the test to enter one of best flight schools in Indonesia – Perkasa Flight School. It didn’t take too long for him to join a flying school, where he started his dream to be a pilot.

The tests consisted of ; Potential Academic Test, TOEIC, Psychological Test, Medical Examination and Interview Session. He spent around 2 weeks to complete all the tests. According to Razi, the psychology test was one of the toughest parts. “I was kinda nervous, but I’m glad I made it,” Razi shares.

“In AVIASI28, I learned so many things that I didn’t know before. I’m so thankful for what I’ve learned when I was in AVIASI28, and I really believe it will help me to be excellent when I start the ground school at the end of February. I hope that everything will go well.” Razi says.

Ando Anindya PASSES Bali International Flight Academy’s Test

Graduate of AVIASI28 Batch 1, Ando Anindya (18) just passed the entry test to Bali International Flight Academy a week ago. The test consisted of Potential Academic Test, TOEIC, Psychological Test, Medical Examination and an Interview Session.

Ando told a little bit about his experience during the BIFA test, “Yes, it’s kinda hard because the Potential Academic Test was held by Indonesia Airforce. They only accept 70 registrants out of 200, so with the psychological test, they are looking for the right candidates for BIFA. The interview session was the hardest for me because they tend to ask about my weaknesses based on the previous tests I have passed.”

“AVIASI28 helped me to know the basics of aviation, and Victor as an instructor, who is a graduate from Australia Wing Academy, also shared his experience. I’m sure that AVIASI28 will help me to learn better and faster in BIFA soon, when I start the class in April 2017.”

8 Minute International flight offered by European Airline

8 minute International Flight by Austrian Airline

An Austrian airline has just started what it claims to be the world’s shortest regular international connection — an eight-minute flight across Lake Constance!

The flight offered by People’s Viennaline takes you from St. Gallen-Altenrhein in Switzerland with Friedrichshafen in southern Germany. It’s part of a route that continues onward to the western German city of Cologne, but just the short flight is available for booking at 40 Euros a person (about $44.10).

German news agency DPA reported that environmentalists aren’t too happy with this new flight, which began service Wednesday. It quoted Swiss Green Party politician Meinrad Gschwend saying he wants the flights banned.

According to the airline, driving around the lake for an hour would produce just as much emissions as the short flight.
