CPL from india or abroad??

Hello

I am actually quite new to this forum. But i would like to know which option of acquiring the cpl is better?

Is doing the course from a flying club like nfti, gondia better or to go to US and then converting the faa to dgca cpl??

I am asking this because of the new rules of the skill test that one has to take in india and other formalities causing people a lot of frustration in conversion...

Kindly help soon bcuz this is getting very confusing..

NFTI is a very expensive institution but good infrastructure.
Also, They have placement contracts with Indigo and Qatar airways. This is not a guarantee but puts you in a better position than the rest of the candidates

Flying abroad is cheaper and faster.

DGCA changes rules at its whim. There is nothing you can do about it. Even Indian students are subjected to this nonsense and you get to know you are in deep s..t when you submit your CPL papers and then they say..Aapke flying hours syllabus ke according nahin hain

So weigh your pros and cons and decide

Even though 'technically' you could fly in the US and get your license converted, at this point I would say just get your training done in India. Work hard, play harder and you'll breeze through all the requirements, papers and other general s**t pilots in India have to put up with. Best of luck. Its a long, risky journey but hey, what isnt

@ Cyril

Mate, The Indigo cadet program does not guarantee you a job.
The contract letter clearly states that a job will be based on the performance, availability of jobs and other conditions.
Though the cadets will be preferred, There is no Guarantee of a RHS seat
You will not be able to sue Indigo if they do not place you.

If we do CPL, Instrument Rating and the rest of the hours from US, then what are the only flights that would be necessary to do in India?

Thanks

I wanted some clarity on the recency issue aswell.. does the recency thing come into picture only before i acquire my converted license through dgca.

or even after i get my converted dgca cpl license, if i dont have a job and i havent flown for the last six months, then do i need to do recency or fly again to keep it active or something??

There are tons of unemployed pilots from India! More than enough for the India aviation industry.

I have too many Indian friends back in India doing nothing.

keyur is going for training? I am not splashing cold water on you. Better think twice. Please do not get influence by others.

Not true! They want money.
