PILOT Professional License

There are various exams, which must be progressively cleared before one can fly various aircrafts or be promoted to senior positions.

Student Pilot License (SPL)

This is an examination conducted by most flying clubs. It covers papers in Air Regulations, Aviation Meteorology, Air Navigation Air Technical. It is a theory exam.

Eligibility: You must be at least 16 years of age and have passed Class X.

Selection: Candidates going through Class II Medical Test at various centres. After medical clearance, candidates should go through 2/3 Months of Pilot Ground Training to acquire SPL in order to start Flying Training.

Private Pilot License (PPL with I/R)

After getting the SPL, you proceed, accompanied by the flying instructor, for initial flying training. This is a dual flight, where the instructor or trainer accompanies the learner to teach him/her the practical aspect of flying. Then the candidate gets his or her first independent (SOLO) flight normally after completion of various Flying Exercises.

Commercial Pilot License (CPL with Multi Engine I/R)

A student can get the CPL by doing his flying training for just 200 Hours. Training facilities are available with Top Flying Clubs in India.

Eligibilty: Class XII (Maths,Physics and Chemistry).

Written Exam: A test in the following subjects is needed for getting the CPL: Air Regulations, Aviation Meteorology, Air Navigation, Technical (GEN).

Pilot Ground Training Course

Ground Training for all 4 DGCA Exams, and also 1 Oral assessment conducted by WPC (Wireless Planning and Co-ordination wing)


  • Aviation Meteorology = Study about weather and atmosphere conditions

  • Air Navigation = Study about Art of routing and Radio instruments

  • Air Regulation = Study about Rules of Air under Aircraft Act 1937

  • echnical General = Study about Complete Aircraft, Engine, Performances

  • RTR = Radio Telephony Restricted

The job of a pilot is a highly specialized one. It requires knowledge of air navigation, interpretation of meteorological reports, operating sophisticated electronic and mechanical controls, leading the aircraft under adverse circumstances, and being a leader to the flight crew and passengers under climatic and other emergency situations.

You are responsible for the passengers, the crew and the aircraft. Hence you must have discipline, patience, responsibility, punctuality, commitment and self-confidence. Additionally, a lot of hard work, stamina, alertness of mind, adaptability to follow difficult time schedules, and good team spirit is required. Emotional stability in crisis situations is another characteristic.

Do you have these attributes? If yes, what sort of training do you require? We list out the various options.

By 2022 Aviation in need of 2000 Pilots. Make use of 'OPEN SKY POLICY' Job Recruitment Advantage.

Aviation Meteorology:

There is no doubt that meteorology is very important in the aviation industry. The survey numbers are 30% of air accidents and 25% of flight delays are due to bad weather conditions. Meteorology gives you the complete knowledge of Rain, Storm, Thunder, Fog etc., Our PTC Aviation Syllabus gives you the overall subject matter knowledge on aviation risk in local scale and Flight Route. Some of the Instruments used to identify the weather conditions are

  • Wind Profilers

  • Lidar

  • Sodar

  • Radiometer

  • Ceilometer

The out result from these instruments will help pilots and airline operators to identify the following problems.

  • Weather Hazards

  • Aircraft Visibility

  • Wind Turbulence

  • Snow etc.,

The World Meteorology Organization (WMO) from the United Nations have created regulatory rules for airline operators. Those regulatory norms will help passengers to travel safe.

Air Navigation:

In simple terms, air navigation includes the planning, recording & controlling the movement of the airline from one location to another. The most difficult part in the aviation process is navigation because the aircraft speed, calculating the anomalies at high speed. Airline operators & terminals used advanced technology to calculate it.

The Aircraft fly under two sets of rules Visual Flight Rules (VFR) and Instrument Flight Rules (IFR). Both rules are established by Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)

Visual Flight Rules (VFR):

VFR is used in normal weather conditions, generally a clear climate pilot can visually see the routes. VFR is Easy to go ride, pilots can maneuver the aircraft freely without any constraint.

Instrument Flight Rules (IFR)

If the pilot cannot view outside the cockpit due to bad weather conditions, then pilots use IFR rules. Pilots should cooperate with ATC (Air Traffic Control), they will direct the routes and guides.

Instruments used in Air Navigations are Altimeter, Airspeed Indicator, Magnetic Compass, Vertical Speed Indicator, Frequency omnidirectional range etc.,

Air Regulation:

Rules & Regulation are established to run a process smoothly. Civil Aviation Governance in India have made Aircraft Rules 1937, to make sure that every airline operator must abide by the law for passengers safe travel.

Let us see a few rules developed by Civil Aviation Governance:

  • An Aircraft shall be deemed to possess the nationality of the state on the register of which it is entered.

  • Prohibited Flights.

  • Licensing of Personnel.

  • Flight to Qualify for extension of a license.

  • Documents to be carried on Aircraft.

  • Carriage of arms, ammunition, explosives etc.,

  • Security checks of the boarding persons.

  • Usage of Radio Telegraph Apparatus.

  • Rules for Aerodromes.

Aircraft Technical (Engine, Digital Console etc.,)

Before going deep in technical knowledge, as a pilot you must know the components of Aircraft. Each and every component needs highly technical knowledge to operate.

5 Major Components of Aircraft:
  • Fuselage.

  • Wings

  • Empennage

  • Power Plant

  • Landing Gear


The main component of the aircraft is fuselage, the long tube shape which holds the passengers, cockpit, crew members & cargo as well. Aircraft manufacturers design fuselage in three shapes (Truss or Framework type, Monocoque Construction, Semi Monocoque Construction).


Wings control the take off & landing of an aircraft. And majorly control the wind flow in the mid air. Wings give the aircraft stability. Aircraft wings are made of High Powered Light Weight Aluminium which has the strength of a steel.

Types of Wings Design
  • Rectangular wings

  • Elliptical Wings

  • Tapered Wings (1950’s military jet design)

  • Delta Wings (Current jet designs)

  • Trapezoidal Wings

  • Ogive Wings

  • Swept Back Wings (Passenger aircraft)

  • Forward Swept Wings

  • Variable Sweep Wings (Dynamic Wings, can alter the wing shape in mid air)


It is the tail of the aircraft, which helps in sustainability and has two major components. Rudder and elevator. Rudder will help the aircraft to steer right and left. Elevator will help the aircraft to move up and down.

Power Plant:

In normal terms, a power plant is an aircraft engine and its components like propeller, Digital and other mechanics. Aircraft manufacturers make different types of engines based on the aircraft operations.

Types of Engines are
  • Reciprocating Engine

  • In-line Engine

  • V Type Engine

  • Horizontally Opposed Engine

  • H Configuration Engine

  • Radial Engine

  • Rotary & Wankel Engine and so on...

Landing Gear:

Without a landing gear pilot cannot take off and land the aircraft. It acts as a suspension and landing gears are designed to absorb and fritter the kinetic energy landing impact. This will save the entire aircraft frame, wings and engines.

Types of Landing Gear based on the aircraft design:

  • Conventional Landing Gear

  • Tricycle gear

  • Pontoon Gear (Sea Plant)

  • Ski-Planes (Ice Landing)

  • Retractable Landing Gear (Passengers, Cargo and many)

The Above are the five major components of aircraft, every pilot should gain immense knowledge in these domains. Being an aircraft pilot you must know the technical skills to handle these components.

Radio Telephony Restricted (RTR)

RTR is Aeronautical Communication, pilots must undergo training on RTR to clear the training. The license is provided by the Telecommunication Department WPC Division. RTR was established by Wireless Planning & Coordination (WPC) of the ministry of communications.

A Pilot will have direct communication with Air Traffic Control, RTR will control hundreds of accidents which are happening in the aviation industry
