Dear aspirant


Airline Pilot

Pilots are of many types like commercial pilot, night flyer, hobby flyer, ground classes, flight radio telephone operator FRTO, student pilot and many more. As you have mentioned your desire to become an airline pilot, you need to get a commercial pilot license. This is known as CPL license, and to get this license you should undergo a pilot training and pass a government approved written and practical exam conducted by DGCA Government of India. To get this CPL license, you should enrol in a pilot training institute and these institutes in India are recognised and popular for this course.
  • Government training institute Bhubaneswar
  • Indian aviation academy Mumbai
  • Jamshedpur co-operative flying club
  • Coimbatore flying club in Coimbatore
  • All India institute of aeronautics Dehradun
  • Rajiv Gandhi aviation academy Secunderabad
  • Ahmedabad aviation and aeronautics Ahmedabad
  • Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi, Bareli
  • Government flying training school Bangalore
  • West Bengal flying training institute Kolkatta

The minimum eligibility to take the CPL license training are:
  • Pass 10+2 with a minimum overall aggregate of 50%
  • Compulsorily have studied Maths until 10th and passed with a minimum of 50% overall
  • Compulsorily have studied Maths and Physics at 12th class and should have obtained 50% as minimum in these two subjects.
  • Should be of a minimum age of 18 and above.

About the CPL training course:
  • This course is run for two years usually.
  • Students can either join this course soon after 12th standard and complete this two year training and start becoming a co-pilot right from 20-21 years. Or students can also do a minimum bachelors degree as a graduation degree and then do the pilot training. This bachelors degree can be from any subject and you should have passed it with a minimum of 55% overall.
  • The fee for a CPL training is usually between 15-20 lakh in India. This fee range differs from one institute to institute although the minimum is 15 lakh for a two year course. You can pay the course fee year by year in two instalments.
  • Once you take complete a two year training then you should appear for the national exam known as Commercial pilot's license conversion examination conducted by DGCA, Government of India. This exam is both theory and practical and you should clear it to get the CPL license. Once you get the license, you are eligible to work initially as a Co-pilot in commercial passenger airline and later after at least a few years of experience or after gaining a minimum of 20000 flying hours, you can be promoted as a Pilot.If you requireany further information, please contact us back.
