Training and endorsement costs for aircraft like Airbus 320, Boeing 747, can be exceptionally highland could range from Rs. 15 lakhs. In addition, each time a pilot shifts from one type of aircraft to another type he/she will have to undergo special training for that aircraft all over again in order to obtain the Type Endorsement.
