Hi,

Greeting's for the day!!!

Being a pilot is one of the finest, toughest and best careers across the globe. Many people are uncertain about the procedure to become an airline pilot and about the various career options as a pilot. Pilots are highly trained and skilled professionals. They can fly various aircraft and helicopters. Flying does not require much physical effort but the mental stress of being responsible for a safe flight of an aircraft full of passengers in all kinds of weather can be demanding. Before take-off the pilot must prepare a flight plan, study the weather, make sure that the aircraft is airworthy, check that the cargo and fuel are safely loaded and work out estimated arrival time. Pilots can work as few a 8 days in a month, to as many as 20. While pilots at a major airline might work 14 days in a month, you must keep in mind that they are not coming home from work on those 14 days. Pilot need to be physical and mentally fit and have good eye sight and color vision. Every year, Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) will conduct pilot license examination in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ahmedabad, Patna, Guwahati, Bhopal, IGRUA, Bhubaneshwar, Hyderabad, Bangalore, & Kochi. If anyone is interfered to join for Indian Air Force (IAF), they need to clear the NDA examination.



Airline flying has the highest salary and most amount of benefits. Some of these are corporate aviation (flying company airplanes), agricultural flying (crop dusting), and you could fly full time in the military. Regional (or commuter) airlines also employ pilots, although the pay scales and working conditions are not like the major airlines.

One can get jobs at AirIndia, SpiceJet, Lufthansa, Jet Airways, AirAsia, IndiGo, National Aviation Company of India and many more.


  • Requirements:

  • Candidates who are applying for pilot training license, must undergo
    a medical test.

  • Candidates should meet the requirements set by the DGCA.

  • There is no need to be in perfect health to be a commercial pilot,
    but to get a job as an army pilot and other public sector pilots,
    perfect health is mandatory.



  • Candidates whose age is above 18 years.
  • Candidates who have passed 10+2 in science discipline with Physics
    and Mathematics as compulsory subjects.
  • Candidates who have passed diploma in any engineering discipline.
  • Candidates who have passed bachelor's degree in science with Physics
    and Mathematics as compulsory subjects.

  • Training Cost:

India: 15 to 20 lakh
USA: 20 to 25 lakh
New Zealand: 20 to 25
Canada: 19 to 23 lakh
UK: 20 to 25 lakh


  • Salary:
