Flying is a glamour and a challenge of the third dimension, and a magnificent challenge of the skies. It is human nature to take up a challenge, which makes flying attractive and glamorous.  

And it does not take much to be pilot. Be medically fit, have an attitude and aptitude, 17 years of age and 10+2 with physics and mathematics and then join us. We make you a Pioneer pilot. With your keenness and dedication you could be a pilot in less than a year. 

As Indian economy booms, expansion of aviation in India will bring another 500 aircraft into India in the next five years. Each aircraft will need 8 pilots.  Now is thus a high time to acquire a pilot’s licence and be ready for opportunities in flying career. 


India is short of pilots. There are around quite a number of foreign pilots flying Indian aircraft, which means you have the opportunities knocking at your door.

Cost Comparison

It is a myth that training abroad is cheaper. Unlike other countries, flying training cost in India is inclusive of the student’s pilot license and the various checks conducted time to time by the chief pilot on the student. These checks abroad are chargeable and there are many there hidden costs that students have to incur once they reach a flying school abroad.

 

Conversion of License

Director General of Civil Aviation mandates that all Indian pilots must have an Indian CPL in order to seek employment with Indian airline carriers. Students, therefore have to go through the process of a DGCA license conversion examination that includes clearing papers on:

a) Air Regulation

b) Composite

c) Radio Telephony

The successful completion of the examination and conversion of license takes one year, which is a crucial waste of time at the start of an aviation career. This process is not only time consuming and frustrating to a student but also exposes him to the risk of losing his flying edge, recency of flying hours and employability.
