Commercial Pilot Training is a course of study used when learning to pilot an aircraft for commercial purposes i.e. for flying passenger aircrafts. The overall purpose of such pilot training is the acquisition and honing of basic airmanship skills. Commercial pilot training has found a lot of interest among people in recent years. This is because of the coming up of many airline services (especially low cost airlines) and growing globalization, economic liberalization and a boom in the aviation industry which has resulted in plenty of job opportunities in airline companies both within and outside India. With the highest number of airlines, the US is the most desired destination for most commercial pilots. Even UK, Australia and some European countries can also be happy hunting grounds for ambitious commercial pilots.

How to become a Commercial Pilot?

One can become a commercial pilot only after he has obtained a Commercial Pilot License (CPL). Commercial Pilot License authorizes the pilot to fly both passenger planes and cargo planes. A Commercial Pilot License may be obtained only after a Private Pilot License (PPL) has been acquired. To obtain a Commercial Pilots License, 250 hours of flying (including 60 hours for the PPL) is necessary. Besides that, one has to undergo a Medical Fitness Test and an examination.

PPL is acquired to a student only after a specific number of flying hours. Its training includes sixty hours of flying of which about fifteen hours are dual flights, that is accompanied by the flight instructor and at least 30 hours of solo flights apart from five hours of cross-country flying. This makes one eligible for the Private Pilot License exam. The prescribed age for appearing for this exam is 17 years and an educational qualification of 10+2 along with a Medical Fitness Certificate issued by the Armed Forces Central Medical Establishment (AFCME). Only after clearing this exam does one get a PPL.

Commercial pilot training is provided by many aviation academies all over India. However, only few of them provide quality training. Chimes Aviation Academy is one of them. It has first of its kind preliminary pilot training course aimed at young aspirants who would want to understand nuances of being a pilot in a practical scenario. Aim of this course is to enable aspiring pilots to test their aptitude for being a pilot & become eligible to appear for CPL (Commercial Pilot License) examination.

To enroll in this institute and get a Commercial Pilot License, one needs to fulfill some basic criteria. It is as follows:

Educational

Qualification

One can join this course while studying in class Xth or above. However for grant of CPL license eligibility is Class XII with Physics & Maths as subjects

Medical

Age

16 years and above. Please note for grant of CPL license one should be 18 years old on date of issue of license

Nationality

Other

Aviation Qualification

NIL

Aviation academies like Chimes Aviation Academy teach a pilot the process of flying an aircraft through the air with proper direction and control. It also teaches the students to understand the weather forecasts. A qualified pilot is supposed to be an expert in leading his crew and the passengers even in trying circumstances and a leader par excellence. Thus to become a commercial pilot, one should have a sound mind in a healthy body, lot of courage, determination and self-confidence besides academic qualification.
