Info needed to be employed in India...

Hello guys,

This is my first time posting at PPRuNe. I have an FAA Ppl with Instrument rating. Hoping to finish my ratings and head to India where I hope to fly with an airline. I have a few questions even though this may have been asked many times in previous forums:
  1. I hold an Indian OCI (Overseas Citizen of India) status. Will I be considered as an Indian citizen or as an expat when I submit my application for employment with airlines?
  2. I need more details on the FAA to Indian DGCA license conversion.
  3. Is tht true tht when u come in with a type rating, they can defer the license conversion if u hold an ICAO valid license? ( since USA and India are members of ICAO).
  4. I also hear tht there are DGCA approved aircraft list for flight training (im not sure though as i remember reading this some where). Where can I get that List of aircraft?
Thats all for now. Pls give me much advice as u guys can.

You will be considered as a Indian citizen. For type rating unless you are loaded or someone already gurantees you a solid job don't do it. They cost a lot and they are only good for one airplane.

Plus to get a nice job easy in India all you need is a good connection, so if you are an Indian citizen and if you know the right people you might just be flying a big lady with just commecial multi.

# I need more details on the FAA to Indian DGCA license conversion.

Check DGCA website they have come up with a new circular about what needs to be done for conversion.

And i doubt Air India will take u in since u are an OCI.But dont take my word on it.

and definetly if u hold OCI u will be on local terms since u have the right to live and work in India.

The FAA is not ICAO
