HOW TO SELECT THE RIGHT FLYING SCHOOL?
As I mentioned before, flying schools are expensive. It is a huge investment for many of us. That’s why you must give adequate attention towards the quality of the school (you’re about to take admission in).
While taking admission, make sure that the flying school satisfies the points mentioned below –
- The flying school should be recognized by the DGCA.
- It should have adequate infrastructure.
- The faculty should be well trained, experienced and knowledgeable.
- There should be adequate lab and practical facilities
- There should be modern training amenities like computer aided training, simulators etc.
- The quality of the flying training (and amenities) should be good.
The above-mentioned list consists of Government run as well as private flying schools. The best thing about these schools is that they are subsidized. The Government provides them financial assistance.
Thanks to Government funding, these flying schools charge fees at the rates prescribed by the Government. This is relatively lower than some of the private flying schools in India.
FLYING SCHOOL ADMISSION IN INDIA
Admission process may vary from one flying school to another. Government (state or central) flying schools follow merit-based admission process. Under merit-based admission, candidates are selected on the basis of entrance exam, aptitude test as well as physical and medical examinations. Candidates who perform well in these tests are allotted seats in government flying schools. Many private flying schools also follow the same practice. Some flying schools carry out direct or donation-based admission process. Physical and medical tests are mandatory in direct as well as donation-based admission modes too.Share this awesome article!
