What’s in a Student Pilot’s Bag?

I got curious and thought it might be interesting to share what’s in a student pilot’s bag. Here is what I found in my better-half’s bag (with his permission!), and at first glance it seems like a very normal bag. A water bottle, a pencil case, some books – nothing too interesting.

But I do like this particular contraption. As far as I can tell, it’s called a kneeboard. It straps to the pilot’s leg, so they have a little surface to work from.

Maps, pens and measuring tools all fit on the knee board. That big elastic strap can wrap around the pilot’s leg.

And here’s a map all marked up for a navigation flight. He uses sharpies and nail polish remover to mark up the laminated maps.

And on the side of the bag is a compartment for the headphones – very important tools for flying planes!

I love a good sticky beak into a bag.
