Program Structure


• The enrollment process begins by registering for the course.
• After registration candidates will be assisted to apply for board verification and computer number on the basis of relevant documents. Computer Number is your unique identity available with the Central Examination Organization (CEO), DGCA to appear for all types of Pilot examinations.
• It is mandatory to establish the medical fitness of a candidate aspiring to be a Commercial Pilot. Candidates, therefore, require a Class II Medical clearance by any of the DGCA approved doctors.
Class II medical examination is valid only for the duration of training flying. Candidates must have a Class I Medical clearance before applying for a Commercial Pilot License.

We provide complete assistance to our permanent students in the entire process of Class II and Class I medicals.


Candidates are required to appear and clear DGCA theoretical CPL exams before proceeding for flight training. Upon clearing DGCA examinations, candidates need to apply for a Student Pilot License. The total duration of flight training is approximately 10-12 months. The same classes will suffice for appearing for DGCA ATPL exams as well. However, additional assistance will be provided to enrolled candidates after completion of CPL flying training.


Students will progress from zero experience level to Commercial Pilot licenses with Single Engine (SE-IR) and Multi-Engine (ME-IR) Instrument Rating endorsements. The flying training requirement set by DGCA towards Commercial Pilot License is as follows.
