Hi Simran,

Firstly wish you all the very best for your 12th results.

Secondly, why are you not interested in Medical now???
Thirdly a pilot does not need any Graduation degree to back him in his technical job of flying.
The training needed to be a pilot is provided under the guidelines of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA)

To be a Pilot one needs to be trained under 3 headings:

  • Student Pilot Licence
  • Commercial Pilot Licence
  • Private Pilot licence

Though majorly one requires training under the Commercial pilot licence, but one needs to qualify the Student pilot licence

To become a commercial pilot in India, one has to first possess a Student Pilot License (SPL).
To get the SPL those with 10+2 with science and aged at least 16 years should register at a flying club which is recognized by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), Government of India.
An oral examination in subjects such as Air Regulations, Aviation Meteorology, Air Navigation, Engine (technical and specific) follows the registration.
Successful completion of the examination entitles you for an SPL certificate.
Check http://www.dgca.nic.in/schedules/section-b.pdf

The second step is the Private Pilot License (PPL).
PPL training includes sixty hours of flying of which about fifteen hours are dual flights, that is accompanied by the flight instructor and at least 30 hours of solo flights apart from five hours of cross-country flying.
This is followed by an exam, which consists of Air Regulation, Aviation Meteorology, Air Navigation, Aircraft Engines and Seamanship.
The prescribed age for appearing for this exam is 17 years and an educational qualification of 10+2 along with a medical Fitness Certificate issued by the Armed Forces Central Medical Establishment (AFCME).

Last step is obtaining A Commercial Pilot Licence.

To obtain a Commercial Pilots License (CPL) 250 hours of flying (including 60 hours for the PPL) is necessary. Besides that you have to undergo a Medical Fitness Test which is held at New Delhi and an examination which consists of Air Regulations, Aviation Meteorology, Air Navigation, Technical, Planning, and communications in the form of Radio & Wireless Transmission.

Obtaining a CPL makes you eligible to fly an aircraft.

As far as graduation like B.Com or BBA etc is concrned, it is the choice of the student.
Since the training listed above, is only eligible to be working with the Aviation industry, once the pilot retires, she needs to be well covered to find a job for sustenance. Though you can find jobs in the front desk department of the airlines too.

But to be on a safer bet, I would recommend, you to pursue Graduation through correspondence.

As far as girls being a Pilot is concerned, I have not read anywhere that Females are not qualified. So if you have the burning desire and are mentally prepared, go ahead, no one can stop you.

Listed below are institutes in India:

Academy of Carver Aviation Pvt. Ltd. www.carveraviation.com
Andhra Pradesh Flying Club, Begumpet Airport, Hyderabad.
Assam Flying Club,
Bangalore Aeronautics Technical Services
Chimes Aviation Academy www.caaindia.com

Hope this helps you in making a decision.

Wish you good luck...

Hi simran, yes one needs to have studied math and physics in 12th to be eligible to be a pilot

. In your case, you have studied physics, now you can appear for math as a supplementary paper. Contact the university for the same. Also check with the pilot training institutes, as they also conduct such separate exams for students who have not studied a subject that is needed to be eligible. Wish you good luck.

Yes Simran, you can.

Contact the board for clarification as to how you could appear for the paper.

Rather contact your college staffs and they would be able to guide you as to how you could apply for the supplementary Math paper.

Wish you good luck Simran...
