Airplane Pilots have one of the most analytical and thoughtful jobs on earth. They go through different types of rituals, procedures, and processes before they can get a plane up into the sky. The good part of this is everything they do is similar to starting a business.

If you are ready to get your business off the ground into the sky of profits, then continue reading this article on how to make your business grow by learning about Airplane pilots.

Checklists

All pilots have checklists that they need to strike out before any journey. For example, before every flight, the pilot (or traditionally the co-pilot in commercial aviation) does a walk around the plane looking for any defects or potential mechanical problems. Pilots also put the engines through a “run up” process to stress test the engine and look out for any problems that could impede a safe arrival.

Bringing this down to business, you need to have a checklist of things you need to do daily, weekly, monthly, yearly.

When you do this it helps you get more organized and add to the possibility of your success.

Schedule Activities In Batches

Pilots and flight attendants get to pick their routes based on seniority. There is a reason the most senior pilots tend to pick routes that take them across the ocean. If they fly overseas, they can meet all monthly work requirements in a few flights rather than work on lots of shorter ones.

For example, a pilot with a flight from San Francisco to Tokyo is just under 11 hours nonstop. If you could work 1 hour 11 times or 11 hours 1 time, which would you choose? In the aviation world, a few long-haul flights per month might be all you need to earn your salary. If you can earn more in less time, you should do it.

As a business owner, schedule your posts and make sure you follow them thoroughly both for your workers and personally. And also note that few quality clients are better than a lot of the opposite.

100% Knowledge Of Your Tools

Pilots also learn the know-how of how to make their aircraft, they have to learn how it works and what they can do in the face of failure. Therefore as a business owner, be sure to know how your tos work 100%, do not under-utilize those tools.

Have An Emergency Plan

On a student pilot’s flight with his instructor, at around 2000 feet he pulled the throttle back and told him “your engine just died, what do you do?” He was teaching him to always be ready for an emergency.

As a business owner, you also need to put this close to your heart, have your fall back cash, fall back supplier, fall back service provider, always have more than one plan.
