Getting a flight license is not easy even in Canada. My English skills make it more difficult. I have to do a lot of things. Reading several manuals is one of them. It means a lot, especially for me, because it would compensate for my lack of understanding in the cockpit. I'm now learning "ancillary controls." It sounds ancillary but they're very important controls. Pilots have to control the carburettor heat, mixture, and environment even in summer, because as the airplane is going up, the temperature and pressure are going down causing icing in the carburettor. Ancillary controls are necessary to avoid it. Flying a plane is more complicated than driving a car or sailing a boat.
