If you are from delhi consider buying a Jepp chart or approach plates from The English Book Store to familiarise yourself

is the scene going to get better after Air India and Jet get their 787 order's ? Maybe in 2012-13 both might get it and all A330 and 777 pilots would go on the 787. SO i guess space for 737, ATR and A330 would be open! AFter 2-3 years atleast 500-600 Trainees could be hired! P.S I am giving my own opinion anyone who knows if i'm right or wrong feel free to give your opinions.
There is no clarity as to how many 787s AI will get. As of now it looks like they are getting 7 for sure and deliveries starting from December. December is tentative as there are some new issues which have come up with the aircraft lately.

Jet will get its 787 from 2014 onwards.

But Jet seems to be adding 737s and ATRs on a regular basis so I think they will recruit on a regular basis. So will most of other carriers like Indigo, GoAir, Spicejet etc. Cant really say much about AI or KF. AI now will recruit more from IGRUA (because of political pressures) if they have any future requirements.

So in the coming years jet,spice,indigo would need atleast 100 pilots each year ? And does AI recruit ONLY from IGRUA ?? KF no1 knows when they'l recruit. And about jet,spice,indigo and go air will they recruit more than what they are doing now? I would finish my CPL in 2013 june mostly. Will the scene get better by then or should i go for instructing or TR ?

Who knows how its going to be in 2013. Still 2 years to go.

Who saw the 2008 downturn coming? In 2006/07 airlines were not able to find enough pilots and suddenly by 2008/09 there were thousands of unemployed pilots and no jobs. Things changed quickly and quite dramatically. And under the current financial uncertainty all over the world nobody knows how 2013 is going to be.

If the current statistics (in terms of aircraft orders and expansion plans) are to be believed then yes 2013 looks bright. But you never know. Another recession/ double dip and we might be back to the 2008 days.

And remember boom or no boom from here on there will be intense competition for any job openings. There are about 3-4000 unemployed CPL holders in the country and the number is still going up quite rapidly. So even if every airline takes about 50-70 pilots an year it still wont clear the back log.

Looks like its still early days in your training so for now just concentrate on getting your license first and after that depending on the market conditions you can decide your future course of actions. Good luck

@gavin

Read flyjet787's post very carefully

There are no garuntees in aviation.....

One day you might have a job . The next day it might not be there .
You can fail a medical and lose your pilot license forever also
Sometimes you wont get paid a salary for a long time ( AI and now Kingfisher is also having difficulty paying salaries )

Read about the financial status about the different airlines in India ( who made profit , who made a loss , how much debt )

If any one of the airlines files for bankruptcy and shut down then that will leave a lot of experienced pilots jobless . Then the existing airlines will only hire these experienced pilots first .
Then all the fresh pilots will not get any jobs for years to come ( worst case scenario )

My first suggestion is to go and get a class1 medical and see if you are medically fit . Only then can you proceed with any of your other plans

All the above reasons I believe are a good enough argument to go and get a degree first

completely unrelated to the subject, and completely silly too i might add, but is wearing a suit considered too overdressed for gd, or is a shirt, pant and tie fine enough? what do people usually wear for this round?

yea i agree with you, i'm thinking the same thing too, although it might be advisable to wear a suit for the interview stage, but that's just me
