I appeared for the ATPL exam in April attempt and cleared Air Nav and Meteorology but missed out on Radio Aids by 4 marks , i was wondering if i'l have to give the exam on the previous pattern only i.e. only the Radio aids exam and nothing else right ?

Is this applicable to the candidates who are converting? They are just pushing it too far now.

People who have FAA license and thinking about converting it into DGCA now actually knows what is the difference in FAA syllabus and DGCA syllabus.

I think there is still lack of practicality in DGCA exams. Like questions about Flight planning and charts.
Knowing the theory of charts like mercator, lambarts doesn't count in how good FLYING knowledge you have. In the end you will draw a straight line from Point A to Point B and measure the Bearing (DGCA guys would know that Convergency has to be applied when plotting NDB bearings which FAA fresh pilots wouldnt know). FAA system does test it. The only thing i do not like about FAA is issuing Question banks and copy pasting the Exact same ques in Test.

However, WE ATLEAST HAVE A SYLLABUS TO REFER TO.

Conversion from FAA

Does anyone have any information about whether these new exams that the dgca have added, are applicable to those who are converting their license (i.e. FAA to DGCA)

Though it is mentioned that the syllabus is applicable "henceforth", what about those who have cleared the papers in this session but have not submitted any paperwork to the dgca?
I still have some training left to do in the states and won't be submitting anything to the dgca for a few months..

any thoughts?

Applies henceforth for all examinations conducted by them. If you've cleared your papers, you're good to go! No question of giving the exams again.

Remains to be seen if DGCA will stick to their syllabus.

The FAA exams are designed for candidates with 2 digit IQ levels who really cant do any better.It still isn't recognised in many parts of the world by leading airlines and use your imagination to figure out why

DGCA have issued a detailed syllabus but the greatest irony is that for Technical-General both CPL and ATPL syllabus are one and the same!!!

@Abhishek

It depends upon which subject you are looking for

For MET use IC Joshi and for Regs RK Bali

For the other topics refer to the EASA/JAA ATPL books like Oxford , GSP etc . Its a good idea to take classes so that you have your concepts clear and can clear your doubts with respect to numericals and other topics

Sky Dancer opines...

The FAA exams are designed for candidates with 2 digit IQ levels who really cant do any better.It still isn't recognised in many parts of the world by leading airlines and use your imagination to figure out why
Luckily, the FAA is very pragmatic in their methods of both knowledge and practical testing. Where the written may be a snap for most, usually, the practical test, when administered by an examiner, not on the payroll of the flight schools, which Indians attend and owned by airline pilots from India, may I add are the antithesis of the knowledge exam.

It reminds me of the initial cadre of Air India pilots who washed out of initial B787 training because of lack of flying skills. They complained the expectations of Boeing instructors of SIN were to high. However training and checking standards beyond India are highs, and for good reasons too. But at the end of the day they still washed out of flight training, but good news was they sure we're book smart.

Many may not be as book smart as those Incredible Indian pilots, however airmen with FAA and EASA certificates are extremely capable aviators. How many FAA or EASA certified pilots have been dismissed from global carriers versus Indian pilots with so-called 2 1/2 digit IQs?

From your statement Sky Dancer, it appears you feel it's better to be book smart than fly smart. The rest of the world thinks it's better to be both book and airplane smart.

Gee Lilflyboy262, Who appointed you as the posting police? Let's see, your 27???? Im sorry, but I didn't catch the number of years experience you have as a TRI and or TRE. How many TRTOs have you've been employed round the world in your 27 years on the planet? Oh... Please enlighten us with how many Aviation agencies you've dealt with too.
