Frequently Asked Questions



Pilot

Answer:

The minimum requirement that any airline generally requires a pilot to have is a basic Commercial Pilots License, with an Instrument Rating and preferably a Multi Engine endorsement. When the pilot enrolls in an airline, he/she enrolls as a trainee pilot and then he undergoes the various training programs conducted by the airline as per their requirement. Once successfully completing these training programs one is released to fly as a first Officer (often called as Co- Pilot).

Answer:

Yes you can definitely join this course and pursue a career as an airline pilot provided you have cleared the 10+2 level exam from a recognized board. But in the case of Commerce or an Arts Student, he/she will have to appear for an isolated paper in Mathematics and Physics at the 10+2 level from National Institute of open Schooling (NIOS). Visit www.nios.ac.in for details.

Answer:

Yes, Certainly the Indian CPL is valid all over the world and it is fully convertible to a license of any other country as per the rules of that country.

Answer:

One can choose any aircraft below a weight of 1,500 Kgs; In this category a lot of options are available like the Cessna 152, Cessna 172, P68. The basic criteria in choosing the aircraft are easy availability, low maintenance, safe, easy to fly and understand.

Answer:

One cannot join the air force with a CPL since the air force has different criteria for selection and their training methods are very different as they fly a different category of aircraft and fly it for a different purpose from the one employed in training you as a commercial pilot. In order to join the air force one can either go through the NDA or through the short service commission. But for a flying job in the air force one has to go through the NDA.

Answer:

There is no particular height one has to be. The individual has to obtain a Cockpit Check Certificate which essentially states that one can manipulate controls and have an unobstructed view of the outside.

Answer:

Currently ± 6 corrected vision is permitted. LASIK surgery is also allowed. However the decision of the Medical Panel in the NZCAA will be final.

Answer:

People usually fail the medical examination if they have an illness that usually affects the decision making in the cockpit. For example if one has a heart condition, is obese or colour blind the medical board will have a tendency to issue an UNFIT certificate.

Answer:

Educational qualification: Minimum qualification required is 10+2 with physics & Maths. Age: 18 years. Medical: Class I Medical is to be done by NZCAA approved Medical Examiners.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering

Answer:

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering is a career option in the aviation sector. It is the job of a licensed aircraft engineer to maintain the fitness of aircrafts. Aviation Australia's Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering training is approved and recognised by both the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) for the purposes of aircraft maintenance engineer licensing.

An aircraft maintenance engineer (AME) keeps aircraft in working order through maintenance, repairs and inspections they are responsible for ensuring an aircraft operates properly and safely. A maintenance engineer may make repairs, troubleshoot problems, conduct inspections and make upgrades to aircrafts. Daily duties may include keeping records of and performing scheduled maintenance, making emergency repairs.

Answer:

Though it is an engineering programme, the AME license course does not require approvals from the AICTE. Attend and complete the approved EASA basic training course (TB1 or TB2 Diploma of Aircraft Maintenance Engineering). Encompassing 2400hrs of training and live maintenance practices. Provided that you pass (minimum 75%) all Part 66 examinations, practical assessments and maintain a minimum of 90% attendance.

Answer:

To make a career as an AME one needs to have passed at least 10+2 / Intermediate, with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics, or its equivalent from any recognised board / university. The applicants appearing in these exams can also apply. The admission to the course is subject to fulfilling the eligibility criteria.

Answer:

Yes. Students who have passed 10+2 / Intermediate with PCM are eligible but they have to undergo an entrance test conducted by our institute. One can check with institute to find out the examination dates.

Answer:

The AME training courses are designed to give students a comprehensive knowledge of the aircrafts, their systems and good maintenance practices to equip the students to become skilled and competent aircraft maintenance professionals.

Answer:

The sector is promising and placements are never a problem after successful completion of such courses. Aviation is the fastest growing industry in India in comparison to other sectors. Sources report that Indian carriers have ordered nearly 500 aircrafts which will be delivered over next decade, 05 aircrafts a month, and as per industry standards, 30 maintenance personnel are required per aircraft. After allowing foreign investments in Indian Aviation Industry, international players are positively looking Indian market. A lot is already happening in Indian Aviation with Jet-Etihad deal, Tata-Singapore collaboration, and Tata-Air Asia JV creating more jobs in near future.

Answer:

AIAT is offering AME course in two streams:

  • a) Mechanical stream - Trains students to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s (AME) license with respect to maintaining an aircraft’sAirframe and Engine/s.
    • B1.1 Mechanical fixed-wing aircraft with gas turbine engines
    • B1.3 Mechanical rotary-wing aircraft with gas turbine engines

  • b) Avionics stream - Trains students to obtain an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s (AME) license with respect to maintaining an aircraft’s Electrical System, Instrument System and Radio Navigation System.
    • B2 (Avionics) fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft.

Answer:

Aircraft Maintenance engineering course is a specialize training program for maintenance and certification of aircraft for safe flight, this is a Licensing program like pilots and the license will be approved and recognised by both the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and the Australian Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA). Only License holder AMEs can maintain and certify the aircraft before each flight, that’s why license is mandatory to become an AME. Aeronautical/ Aeronautics Engineering deals with designing new aircraft that are limited to the Earth’s atmosphere and deal with the concepts, components and forces that affect the aircraft. For example, aerodynamics, avionics, materials science and propulsion.

Cabin Crew

No, but you should have excellent physical health

Flight Operations & Dispatcher

Answer:

A flight dispatcher (also known as an airline dispatcher, flight follower or flight operations officer) assists in planning flight paths. Dispatchers also provide a flight following service and advise pilots if conditions change.

Answer:

The flight dispatcher doesn't need to fly from one location to another. The dispatcher's work places are normally located in a facility called “Flight Dispatch” or “Airline Operations Control”.

Answer:

It’s a certification course. For license course 6 weeks of training has to be done from AIAT and then 2weeks of training in Denver (US).

Answer:

A certification verifies that a professional has met a certain set of criteria for a skill or job as measured by a third-party assessment. A license is verification by a government agency that a professional is able to perform a particular occupation in a particular location, such as a certain state
