Demand for civil pilots is skyrocketing . With the Indian skies opening up , it pays to have your head in the clouds and feet on ground.

In India the incorporation of the public sector Air India in 1948 and Indian Airlines in 1953 heralded the new age of commercial aviation.. Since then as the nations air routes have opened up and multiplied, and a growing number of newer aircraft purchased, the demand for commercial pilots - the magnificent men and women who fly these wonder machines- has been rising steadily.

flying clubs or schools provide practical training for aspiring commercial pilots who are obliged to acquire a commercial pilot licence ( CPL ) which is awarded to those who acquire flight experience over a wide range of aircraft with specified experience of solo, cross -country, instruments, night flying and certain number of take-offs and landings etc.

The Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi ( IGRUA ) , Rae Bareli , is the premier flying school in the country and is administered by the Union ministry of civil aviation.

Unless a pilot passes the ground subjects and has completed 250 hours of flying as per the syllabus , he / she can not be issued a licence. The 250 hours of flying can be completed through various flying clubs in India . It usually takes 18 months to complete 250 hours. The price of acquiring flying experience of 250 hours would be approximately Rs 22 lakhs ( including boarding ) with candidates paying by the hour as they fly. Training for a pilot abroad could cost RS. 16 -- 20 lakh but you can recover the investment within a year .

A commercial pilots career is challenging , well-compensated and exciting . At the moment theres a huge demand for pilots with many new private airlines crowding the skies. By one count , the airline industry will need around 15,000 pilots by 2020 ..

A high - flying career option for those , aiming for the sky .

All the best ....
