The term is used to describe the place from where the pilot controls the aircraft. It is used interchangeably with the word flight deck. It contains all the controls a pilot needs to fly the aircraft. One can also think of the cockpit as the nerve center of the entire aircraft.
There are a few competing theories behind the use of the word, “Cockpit”.
The first step towards becoming a pilot is your medical. Unless you don’t clear your medical, there isn’t any point in taking any steps further. So first comes your class 2 medical and then class 1.

In the airline sector, jet airways used to be a sign of hospitality, luxury, punctuality and customer service.
The answer to the airlines constant struggle to make further profits might be the Skyrider 2. We all have been in that crammed economy seat for hours. All we wonder is, can air travel possibly be more uncomfortable??. Unfortunately the answer might be yes.
Medical fitness has always been the most important aspect of a pilots life. If your not medically fit as per governing authorities in your country, you cannot fly. Its been one of the frequent questions I have been getting from budding pilots.
