Becoming a successful Commercial Pilot and flying Airliners with reputable Indian and International Airlines is a dream for many, as it offers an exciting and rewarding career path. Some of the Commercial Pilot Licenses and pathways towards becoming a Commercial Pilot are: UK CAAfATPL (UK), CASA CPL (Australian), CAANZ CPL (NZ), FAA CPL (US), TCCA CPL (Canada), Indian DGCA CPL etc. The most difficult and indeed the most sought after the world over by International Airlines remains the UK CAAfATPL, followed by the Australian CASA CPL. If you want to become a Commercial Pilot in India and fly with the various Airlines in India, you need a DGCA license. Conversion to DGCA License is the easiest and quickest if you have UK CAA fATPL license. We therefore support and offer the best 2 kinds of CPLs abroad – UK CAA fATPL (at Oxford, UK), Australian CASA CPL (at Gold Coast, Australia).

Q&A : CPL
Answer: Yes you can. You need to know basic 10th level Physics and Mathematics for enrolling in the course and becoming a Pilot. You however may need 12th level Physics and Mathematics for DGCA conversion later on and even 12th NIOS would do for this purpose. You also need to improve upon your English level as you will need to write and clear IELTS exam
Answer: You can join a Pilot course and become a Pilot right after completing your 12th. You may also do it after you complete your graduation. The choice is entirely yours. You will be employable as a Commercial Pilot right after completion of the CPL course and getting the relevant license, subject to the policies of the Airline
Answer: It is ok as long as you can see well with your glasses with 6x6 vision after correction, and you are not colour blind. You also need to be medically fit enough to pass the medical test. So if you have Diabetes, it would be difficult for you to pass the Class-1 Medical. You should have minimum 153 cm or 5ft 1inch Height.
Answer: The Costs depend upon the type of license you go for, and the country you go to for your CPL training. The duration of the course varies from 6 to 24 months. The best and therefore the most expensive works out to be the UK CAA EASA ATPL (Total Fee Euro 80,000) followed by Australian CASA (Total Fee AUD 103,000). The above costs include Tuition Fee. The cheapest would be India, New Zealand, US or Canada ranging from INR 25 lacs to INR 50 lacs. Employment Opportunities & Salaries that you would get upon becoming a Pilot would also be in proportion to your investment. The better CPL license you take, the better jobs you get and the higher you fly in your career!
Answer: Yes indeed you can. In India, Female Pilots constitute 12% of the total, which is higher than the Global Average. Female Pilots have proven to be as good as Male Pilots, if not better
Answer: Type Rating is specific to different types of Aircraft and their different models. Each Airline has different types of Aircraft in their fleet. So if you do Type Rating earlier for a particular Aircraft model, you could be actually not only wasting your money and time on Type Rating (as Type Rating is very expensive $ 10,000 - $ 25,000) but worse, limiting your Employment Options. In most cases, after you have been interviewed and offered a job with an Airline, sometimes the Airline itself sponsors the Type Rating for you for the specific type of Aircraft that they have, subject to you signing a Bond. So, do NOT do Type Rating earlier.
Answer: The Airlines only offer a "Letter of Intent" of offering you a job "Subject to certain conditions" and entirely at the discretion of the Airline. There is no Guarantee of any kind and you cannot subsequently take the Airline to court - read the Fine Prints. These Cadet Pilot / Pathway programs are very expensive, include an unnecessary Type Rating and actually limit your chances of Employment by limiting the options to only that particular Airline. Why put all your eggs in one basket? What if the Airline doesn't take you on for any reason whatsoever? What if an Airline goes out of business - remember Kingfisher & Jet Airways! So do NOT go for any "Cadet Pilot / Pathway" Programme, take an ATPL or a good CPL independently and apply for jobs.
Answer: Don't fall for play of words and semantics by any Flying School. There are no Job Guarantees of any kind in any course, be it a Cadet Pilot Program or any other. Remember - more than 6,500 qualified Commercial Pilots in India are without jobs. There are however no ATPL qualified Pilots who are without job. UK CAA EASA ATPL offers the best possibility of getting a good job and making a great career as a Commercial Pilot
