if you want u can do it in india itself mpfsc they got p68 .they will get u done within 2 weeks

their website says Rs.27,000/- per hour, isn't it to pricey for a p68?
Are Multi IR done in India any good in terms of knowledge? are they comparable to JAA, FAA, TC, CASA etc.

Visa is another problem that we all have to put up with :ugh:. I think with the number of new rules made by DGCA with an intention to make our life cumbersome it would be best to do it in India, but not sure if it would be worth in terms of gaining knowledge and cost.

thanks guys for reply
that is true mpfc are charging around 30000rs per hrs.and it would be expensive too. even more i dont think so that in india it would be possible to finish it in 10hrs..they just want to drag money and hrs both.i cant compare knowledge and skill test with FAA,JAA etc
Please tell me how about newzeland,australlia or any counry where i can get cheaper cost and good knowledge and skill.
Please send detail

I don't have much information about Australia and New Zealand, from what I have heard its quite expensive there but they offer excellent training. I suggest you Canada, they have a world renowned standards and offer cost effective training, you can fly a decent Seneca at a reputed school for Rs.20,000 odd.

You have 2 issues to consider, cost and quality..
If you stay in india, u will save on visa, international flight travel and cost of living.
however, india does not have a structured instrument rating or multi engine syllabus (i am assuming you are looking for IFR on multi ).
So, you may not get a good exposure to Instrument flying procedures as you would get in USA, Canada, Australia or New zealand.
Secondly, Avgas is a lot costlier in india and so the per hour flying rates are much higher in India. so whatever you save on travel etc you will pay extra on the flying in india.
So to sum it up,
1. there is not much difference in total cost. i have not put the numbers in this post but i have done the research myself and you are welcome to do the same. you can look up some flight school websites from us or canada to get the single/multi rates from there and then do a comparison for the approx 15hrs of flying that you will need to do.
2. there is a definite advantage in terms of quality in doing an instrument rating abroad. some of the members here will dispute this and defend their flight schools in india but again, i say this after much research and feedback.
so i would advise going abroad for the same.
the other issue to be considered is convinience/ease of processing.
keep in mind that u might have to convert to the license of the country where u intend to fly before u can do the multi ifr there.
would be most convinient for you if you go the US where u already have the license.
if you already have the se and me from there all you would have to do is renew your multi and ifr ratings on a multi that is available in india like senecca, diamond twin or p68. once your faa ME and ifr are current and you have minimum 10 hrs on the chosen twin, u should be good.
