Gents,

Most of the jobless lot in India are only 10+2, ie., high school passouts. What knowledge and maturity do you expect these guys to have? Obviously, they live in their own virtual worlds where they consider that it is their destiny to have their first job as a tubeliner f/o. You can't really expect any hint of professionalism from these wannabe jocks. They hardly know anything about life. Their line of thought is very narrow.

If you have been to uni, then you have obviously experienced first year dorms, resisting temptations, coping with unimaginably large syllabi, dealing with different kinds of people, working around tight situations and so much more...All this valuable experience makes a huge difference in how you get around business in India.

Unfortunately, there is very little honest recruitment in India. Your Dad's money and influence play a key role in securing you that flying job. At the least, you are going to need some contact in the industry to see to it that your CV is picked up from the 100s that usually end up in the trash can. Getting into flying in India, without someone on the inside, is a very foolish move.

There is no laziness as such among jobless Indian pilots but rather that they don't know much. They are not really street smart. It also makes a difference to which uni you go to. These days, there are many random engg. college who will gladly take any 60%+ guy. These are low standard colleges and obviously their graduates are also not that great.

If you are a honest guy with a not-so-rich Dad, then your only hope is to study hard. Remember what Amitabh Bachhan said in KBC: "Sirf gyaan hi aapko apna haq dilata hai" Realizing this and seeing the state of the jobless lot, a senior pilot I know decided to study hard. He was a 92 percenter, and had got into one of the top NITs (earlier known as RECs) which was the 8th/9th best engg. college in India. Obviously, he learned a lot during his 4 year stay and also became accustomed to maintaining and adhering to high standards. Recruited off the campus, his first year paycheck alone allowed for a MECPL+TR. I am serious!

It also makes a difference to work after graduation. Because you also gain a lot of valuable experience in the office environment. Learning to deal with high ranking officials, understanding office politics, etc. Two years later, this person funded his CPL on his own and went on to pursue a TR. By that time, he had strategically built contacts and as expected, got himself into the 737 RHS. Obviously, the 1.5 lakhs/month paycheque was peanuts compared to his previous pay but it was worth the effort because he was doing what he wanted to and he worked hard for it and done it on his own. There is no greater satisfaction than this form of achievement.

So in short, if you are a normal guy then you've got to know someone on the inside. Or you've got be very very lucky. But at the end of the day, it's all about hard work for us normal people.

EDIT: I should also add that being more educated raises your standard in other's minds and increases the chances of your CV being picked up. Sure skill does matter but that test comes after the clearing the first impression test. 10+2 spoilt kid funded by rich dad or humble B.Tech. Aero Engg. with ratings funded by own hard earned money??? Who will you pick, if you are the CP?

Depends who the CP is.Personally I'd pick the hotter one of the two

It must take helluva matured(read perverted) mind to bully 20 year olds.Sage like knowledge and experience to make frivolous suggestions (to go voyaging like Sindbad), without any idea about ground realities.

So you must go around the whole world,go to uni,do engineering,know about office politics,become street smart and then come to aviation.I must say that you have managed to take this to a different level of stupidity.Congratulations !

@ contractpilot
I am sure there is no relation between a high school passout & another with a degree trying to be a pilot. These minimum education standards are set by the governing bodies almost every country has these as the minimums I really don't know any place having you to have a degree to fly a plane, hell even the AirForce or rather the defense system in general consider these to be the minimum requirements to let the pilots in to defend the country, surely that carries more responsibility so to say. Also if you look at the pilots working with the industry right now majority are 10 + 2 passouts or most have got their degrees later after they started flying. These have gone ahead becoming Captains & Check Pilots and you will agree with me when i say they don't seems to be crashing planes at frequent intervals. The discipline required to fly these commercial airplanes comes on the job just as it does when joining the defense system. Some might not reach absolute standards but that rather depends on an individual basis and has nothing to do with they not having a degree.
Please you talk about in your words "If you have been to uni, then you have obviously experienced first year dorms, resisting temptations, coping with unimaginably large syllabi, dealing with different kinds of people, working around tight situations and so much more...All this valuable experience makes a huge difference in how you get around business in India." You serious mate you have never found any of these when you got around getting your CPL done, or life in general I outside a college degree, wonder really what closed life you have been living yet, please cut the crap.
You say jobless Indian pilots are not street smart get a grip, you are here to fly an commercial airplane you don't need to be the makings of the next President all you need is to follow procedures and put some logic & common sense in it, nothing to do with being street smart.

I don't even want to get in your last 4 para's, that is a complete joke.

WoW !!
Earlier it was laziness then came excuse of not leaving home for hardship then came daddy's money funding kids own comforts then came low hours with shiny dreams( nightmares ) now comes less education.
Yes Indian pilots are mostly 10+2 but does that make all of Indian pilots are 10+2 kids ? Haha logic of putting views or dare i say forcing one's own views on others by using lame and duck fart reasons can only showcase what sort of discomfort older generations are feeling seeing easy going kids.

I wouldn't say about other kids on this thread but would rather say about me on this aspect in the pretext of education.
I am B.Tech from DCE , MS in Aeronautics with all credits on my marks sheet.Worked as an intern in Bristol plant of EADS ( Airbus wing development center) for 6 months..had interest dabbling from Audio HiFi to DIY electronics.I also have my one hand in finance market to fund my fantasies.But i faced same problems like this 10+2 kids.
Now take this , My grand dad had 38K+ hours ranging on ( dakota/dc3/caravelle/707/737/747 ) and my dad veteran of 34K+ hours on all modern jet's with airline ranging from Indian to European still couldn't land me shiny jet seat.Why coz he never wanted me in this line in first place, to beg for something for him was lowering his dignity.He never asked anyone nor did i but it use to feel extremely painful to see people getting jobs with money power with no skills.I did what i could do atmost , wait & study and increase my savings for future....
So with my education certainly i am not less educated than most of you or less skilled technically or mentally.

Plus i got license at a time when recession started but cleared KFA exam in late 2007 and ditched it knowing the cost & terms of taking job there.Cleared Jet in 2008 July to put be on 2 year wait.Took up a job in GA on B200 in 2008 late with company bonding me for 3 years which ruled me out for Jet's 2008 job when they came back to us in start of 2010.Got upgraded in my GA work and gave Indigo's exam but couldn't clear...gave Jet's exam 3 weeks later but failed in interview when asked " what you did when you were not flying " all i said started making speakers for fun.That was it for them....why i failed with all my qualification was simple for me to understand that they didn't even took under consideration in first place.

Hard luck was told to me every time i couldn't find a airline job.With all my contacts and qualification i was placed under same bracket of fresh CPL holder fighting for a job along with them.
I fly with politician's , CEO's of big fat MNC's hell i even flew with expats who got trained by my dad.Every one said we will find a job for you and many did on airlines but in the end it all came with one thing - Money as kickback to land job.How much , To whom or When ? Answer was 20L Rs upwards.....

And i ain't even 20 year old , i am getting paid but its too little to even cover my automobile repair cost.I ain't crying that after studying so much i am getting peanuts in return....coz i know what i was getting into.I have understanding of Airline Biz....everything that goes up comes down and it's down right now for me atleast but i will go up surely when is matter of time but by my own will.So when idiots who have absolutely no understanding of local system/hardship or for that matter basic working rights boils me

You must know why most expats are fuming coz young inexperienced kids are taking away their option of another livelyhood , deserving local pilots are finding it hard coz money power and too much anti Govt. policies , poorly financed pilots are facing bank's ire to return money.

In the end to land pilot job in India or anywhere comes down to two things - Money power & Contacts !

In both of your posts, Capt Apache & Johnny Boy, I see very little maturity and professionalism. A lot of rambling, rather. Both of you, as I decipher it, want to go the right way which is a good thing to do. But to go the right way, maturity and professionalism are two fundamental prerequisites among many others. Unfortunately, due to your teen-like rebellious nature, snobbish attitude and lack of meaningful experience, these qualities are clearly absent in both of you. This in itself hampers your chances of becoming a F/O. Why? Because you say that you want to go the right way. So, obviously, we expect you to have some standard, to have some class. A certain charm is what we're looking for. This kind of outlook will sadly get you sent back from an interview. I cannot see any hint of both of you having that standard, class or charm from your posts.

The honest path is narrow. Chances of success along this path are slim. Add the slightest uncalled drawbacks and then chances of success tend to zero (remember calculus). If you are going the right way, you have got to be the best. I am not a fool to waste my time anymore. I have clearly stated what I wanted to get across. Whether you choose to accept it or not is purely up to you.

I have worked hard and made a comfortable niche for myself close to but thankfully out of this mess of getting a flying job. I will sit back and watch the ill-fated ones go on their road to perdition.

Clearly, you don't understand what I mean. I am not bringing in the aspect of having a degree with respect to any form of minimum qualification requirements. This thread has nothing to with the Air Force for which the recruitment is so stringent that only the best and truly gifted ones are selected. By default, they get the cream of the lot. I have not done a CPL but am very much involved with recruitment in airlines.

This discipline you speak about should come on the job but rather before it. If they have it beforehand, their recruitment is quite 'honest'. If they are ever recruited that is. All this is with reference to India. And trust me as a brother, you have no idea what life in university, particularly in India, is like. It's like no other. That's for sure.

In India, if you're going the honest route, we do want to see very high standards being adhered to.

That's your class and maturity to club each n every tom dick & harry in one stroke.That is professionalism for you to degrade and have pre conceived perception of each one of younger generation upcoming pilots are not matured , lacking professionalism and skill's.
So you decode all traits by reading posts and not even reading it properly.

First it was not so matured educated pilots reason of cribbing for you now its non-professional attitude.The more reasoning and logic you quote, the more amusing its becoming.


I have worked hard and made a comfortable niche for myself close to but thankfully out of this mess of getting a flying job. I will sit back and watch the ill-fated ones go on their road to perdition.
Then again it's your class to see others fail.

I have not done a CPL but am very much involved with recruitment in airlines.
God save those airlines for which you are a recruiter.Did you by any chance worked as or in KFA ?
I am already an FO and would pray that i don't get bench to test me which includes people like you that lack class in first place to point fingers at others.
Hell you are not even a student pilot , Contractpilot with 69 at back ....any fetish for 69 ?

Lightbulb Luck?

I see a lot being talked about 'Luck' and 'Contacts' in the posts. It literally kills me when I see that anyone getting anything positive is either deemed as 'Luck' or 'Contacts'.

I've not seen much, But I've certainly seen enough to tell you with surety, that in Aviation, like in any other field, You make your own ‘Luck’. Some of us do it by educating ourselves and gaining all the above mentioned experiences while others try and make opportunity for themselves to achieve something on a long term.

I have been witness to opportunities crop up for Pilots, not necessarily for Flying, but for ATC, Operations, Flight Planning, Dispatch and various other skills that we have been trained for.

I can tell with first-hand experience that by working and being in close vicinity to the field, I managed to keep my skills sharp and also grab the first opportunity that arose. I am today flying for my company where I started as a dispatcher and so is a good friend of mine who chose to do the same (in another company). I have tried in vain to put more people in similar positions, but poor pay and hectic working conditions have made them not consider.

My advice (if I may) would be to not worry about pay or the work schedule, but look at a long term prospect of this. And in the mean time if an airline job creeps up, At-least you have something productive to talk about when someone asks "What have you been doing?"

Many pilots in the association have taken up other jobs, and some have even started their own businesses, Capt Arya says. He laments that the civil aviation ministry wasn’t doing anything about it.

“There are 3,000 vacancies for the posts of Assistant Traffic controllers in the Airport Authority if India. The ministry can try its level best to fill these posts and revive the aviation industry,” he says recalling that during a similar situation between 1975 and 1997, Air India and Indian Airlines accommodated jobless pilots as flight dispatchers and operators.
Billboard quoted that in post no 55.They are already doing what they can to help themselves.But when they feel frustrated and look for support on sites like these, all they get is insults.

I respect all pilots regardless of their experience.Hats off to all of you for taking a plunge in this career.

But if you haven't taken the plunge already.....Dont do it.

I wouldn't say about other kids on this thread but would rather say about me on this aspect in the pretext of education.
I am B.Tech from DCE , MS in Aeronautics with all credits on my marks sheet.Worked as an intern in Bristol plant of EADS ( Airbus wing development center) for 6 months.
Jet in 2008 July to put be on 2 year wait.Took up a job in GA on B200 in 2008 late with company bonding me for 3 years which ruled me out for Jet's 2008
And i ain't even 20 year old
How much of this kid's CV is utter BS? So at you're not even 20 years of age yet, so of course you're 19 years old. Apart from the tertiary credentials you claim to have (ie must of started college/university at 14 years of age?) you've worked at Bristol as an intern?

At age 19 you were born in 1994. Say for argument's sake you turn 20 this year, so lets play your game and say you were born in 1993. In 2008 you tell us you took up a job in GA on a KingAir which makes you 15 years of age, at best.

Wow Johnny-Boy-Liar! Where oh where did you find the time to fly your B200 at age 15, study for your "B.Tech from DCE , MS in Aeronautics with all credits" and go to Bristol as an intern? Needless to say we can assume anything out of this kids mouth is just more BS.

failed in interview when asked " what you did when you were not flying " all i said started making speakers for fun.
Goes to show that the interviewers saw straight through you. A successful applicant would of said that he/she has done nothing but do whatever it took, wherever it took, demonstrated relentless study and preparation to better his/her chances at a successful career, and took up jobs that could steer him/her closer to that ambition..... but you "made speakers for fun".

(How did you find the time between your study, internship at Bristol, GA job, study for your interviews AND you managed to make speakers "for fun"? For the record I'll admit to name calling: YOU'RE AN IDIOT. Liar? I'll leave that to basic reasoning....!!! In the mean time, google "sciolists". Don't worry, Apache here believes every word you say and is your ally. The stupid leading the blind perhaps?

As said, you make your own luck. But you kids go on and make speakers for fun, or blame every one and every thing for your predicament.

As I said before, this is Darwinism at its finest.

TopTup,
I think he may have meant his is much older than 20 but is willing to work for peanuts. That is what I got out of it although I may be wrong.

You (Top Tup) and some of the other posters all made great points. But you're just wasting your breath. You will be chided, accused of not being able to relate to how hard it was to get the first airline gig etc, etc, etc.

To the original poster that wants the government to do something. That is pretty funny. Do you know how many CPL holders there are in the busiest commercial and ga market in the world (USA) that do not have jobs. I'm betting to say that it is close to the numbers in India. It's for a multitude of reasons they were not able to get a job. So, India isn't the only country with a bunch of unemployed pilots. And finally, why is aviation so different? Why shouldn't the government help out Art History majors that have spent money on an expensive education but can only find jobs at a Walmart or a call center?

It is not a government issue, but it is a market issue driven by supply and demand. And why people in India undertake CPL training knowing what the dire straits of newly minted CPL's is, is beyond me.

Let's be honest, they are guilty of not doing any research; so really, don't blame the airlines, don't blame the schools, and don't blame the government. A quick internet search would have sufficed; but most think they know more than us, the guys that went through it. All we are saying is that it is a tough business, lots of sweat and tears will be shed, and even bigger sacrifices need to be made. So when you come back here and complain, about how you can't find a job with 250 hours (we know this), but you have to understand that your 250 hour CPL is really just a glorified PPL and if you want to make your resume stick out, you need more time. How you do that, you have to figure it out. We have all collectively given you advice, now it is up to you to figure out what to do. Good luck.

My suspicion about you were indeed true.
You have serious reading skills problems.Interpreting simple english lines is beyond your scope and horizon no wonder why you were kicked out of AI before being humiliated by management and dec crew.
Every post of yours is filled with babbling donkey shit's.Every single word of your is BS to many of us...don't be fooled by your experience or age, you are classified idiot who can't even understand plain jane english lines.


Goes to show that the interviewers saw straight through you.

Picking up lines out of context and then twisting it in your own is only way you can defend or debate.
Heard something called hobby ? Guess you are un imaginative in your life so you have no understanding of any hobby other having incompetent english reading skills.

(How did you find the time between your study, internship at Bristol, GA job, study for your interviews AND you managed to make speakers "for fun"?

Don't worry, Apache here believes every word you say and is your ally. The stupid leading the blind perhaps?
A person calling himself experienced enough who have tasted air of different continents and unable to decode " i ain't 20 year old " is totally incompetent person with IQ lower than people suffering from cerebral palsy.
You are making mockery out of yourself TOPTUP over here....gather your thoughts and think twice before even trying to post a single line.Accept it you are an incompetent person with serious interpersonal behaviour problems.
A person of your experience should have easily understood i am not an teenager nor an 20 something but the way TOPTUP reads or see's simple basic conversation is only known to him.
A person can't be Commercial Pilot till he is 18 years old...i bet you know regulations...but you forgot it so you don't know your regulations.LMAO

Capt.Apache is competent person fighting for his rightful place in his professional life and leading content life, views expressed by him are not entirely correct but he is defending them being honest and humble unlike you.

You are an old timer who got screwed by un deserving indian pilots from worst airliner in world ( AI )...Growup old hog, drinking too much is not wise and when its people like you with serious attitude & behaviour problems leads to burnt arse or broken ego.
As I said before, this is Darwinism at its finest.
Applies fully on you.I can smell burnt EGO....can you ?

TheBigD TopTup,
I think he may have meant his is much older than 20 but is willing to work for peanuts. That is what I got out of it although I may be wrong.
You are not wrong TheBigD , you interpreted my words correctly unlike TopTup who is suffering from degrading english skills.

I'm betting to say that it is close to the numbers in India. It's for a multitude of reasons they were not able to get a job.
Another zero detail speculative post.

Earlier they said the world is full of opportunities, which noobs had failed to explore.Now suddenly the whole world has become unemployed.

Apache,
Speculative? Not really. Look at the number of airline pilots in the US and the number of CPL's issued. You will see there are more CPL's out there than jobs. Since you obviously have plenty of time on your hands, feel free to do the research.

What I am telling you and what you do not grasp is that this is a tough profession. There will always be more pilots than jobs out there. Always has, always will be. Supply and demand. Market forces. That simple. Now don't blame us, the schools, or the airlines. Were students mislead; sure. But in this day and age, with abundant information available at your fingertips there is no excuse. But what is done is done.

What we are telling you is there are opportunities that MAY or MAY not get you into an airline gig. I really have no dog in this fight. Do whatever you think is right; but sitting around and arguing with us is not going to get you any closer to where you need to be. Good luck; stop whining; man up and do what you think is best for you.

There was a time when no kid with 200 hours would think of getting an airline job. He would flight instruct, join the military, go to college, build hours....but not now..

Since the whole industry, including the US picks their pilots off the bottom of the resume pile...by gosh, now you have legions of indignant 1000 hour pilots that feel entitled to a job, flying a jumbo jet with 300 people in back. Yes sir. They are qualified and they deserve a job.

And i ain't even 20 year old
Still can't see the failure of my interpretation of your words. I will plead guilty to a failure to comprehend your incessant pathetic grammar, spelling and punctuation which may have attributed to the misunderstanding. In aviation we have standard RT. Potentially another reason you're unable to get a job if this is your comprehension and literary level that would be discovered with minimal testing.

If I am wrong in assuming you are 19 years of age then I apologize for insulting mature 19 year olds.

Like the fool you are you answered a rudimentary question designed to test your true vocation to aviation: What have you done while being unemployed / seeking employment as a professional airman? You answered "I made speakers for fun". You're not an idiot for being honest. You're an idiot for being so deluded in your arrogant belief that you're owed a job and its everyone's fault but your own. You're an idiot for arguing that it's OK to allow a hobby to take precedence over making ever minute of every our of every day work and count toward fulfilling a wet dream you had once about becoming a pilot.

Yes, most of us have hobbies. I am yet to see but a single person successful at anything allow a hobby to interfere with their professional ambition or integrity. (Most pilots will list aviation as their hobby. They/we love it. We live for it. So much so that we try to leave the profession in a better place than when we joined. Quite often that means speaking out against insults to the profession like you and others.)

Don't even attempt to lecture me on ICAO standards and rules. What I find necessary and is a part of my job is to be well versed in ICAO Docs such as 4444, 8168, 9613, 9905, 9976, and so on.... not to mention PANS OPS 1, 2, 3 & 4, while you of course prefer to make speakers as your aviation preparation & study. My knowledge of them is the precise reason why you and so many like you can only aspire to bring Indian aviation lower should some corrupt and incompetent fool ever offer you a job in an airline let alone a KingAir.

EVERYONE on this forum who has a job in a commercial airline, who have experience in Indian Aviation as well as other countries of the world say the same on this thread. But as BigD and others infer, you and our ilk are nothing but ignorant, immature brats unwilling due pathetic arrogance and sense of being owed a job as opposed to earning a job seek to blame every one and anything.

It appears you've read my previous posts. No kid, I was far from burnt by Indian Aviation. I was so abhorrently disgusted at the putrid state of it and the fact that all too often people like you do get a job and risk the lives of hundreds of people. I walked away rather than be apart of it. I'd mention words like integrity and responsibilities of the profession but I'd hate to interrupt you from making another speaker.....

(Besides, there's a few months of solid study for you to attempt from those ICAO Docs I mentioned. Sorry. I know, I know..... You shouldn't have to. It's the airlines' and government's responsibility and never yours).

You can't intrepret and understand simple english , what a shame a person claiming to be FAA/DGCA 777 examiner can't understand english words.I pity you for ignorance and incompetent attitude.
Your last resort to validate your points is pointing others towards literacy of english grammar.
I would repeat myself again " You can't understand & Interpret English ".
Can you correctly understand cockpit display ?

You have none what so ever.
Only thing that qualifies as hobby to you is posting BS on others and thinking how knowledgeable you are regarding all things in life.You are just an old timer who have grown so frustrated of having boring life that each and every words of your represents depressed & ignorant mind of yours.

You don't know a pint of REGULATION's.Dont even think of starting on this with me.....accept it you are very weak in debating but very good BS'ing skills.

I aspire how not to be like you be it in professional life or private life.Being like you would be torture to my soul in first place.
I can never aspire about how knowledgeable you think you are who can't even understand simple english sentence's.

When views's of other people matches yours then its all good and sane for you but opposite of it, then they are merely passerby's with illogical thinking.
TheBigD understood my post and he interpreted it correctly what i meant but you on otherhand are hell bent to twist each words of others to whine about how others are wrong infront of you then say we are accusing you.
You are classified dumb other than being old idiot which is degrading to people with low IQ level.

It appears you've read my previous posts. No kid, I was far from burnt by Indian Aviation.

Whole country and its establishments can't be wrong when one person is critically ill from his thinking abilities.
Its disgusting that Indian DGCA made people like you examiner without even sending you first for full proper medical examination detailing.
Pilot with this attitude in air poses serious risk to his co-workers and flyers and with you onboard i would rather put you on jumpseat with hands tied down coz of a lunatic on board is never allowed.

(Besides, there's a few months of solid study for you to attempt from those ICAO Docs I mentioned. Sorry. I know, I know..... You shouldn't have to. It's the airlines' and government's responsibility and never yours).
Don't worry about my studies, i am far more capable and intellectual than you are now or were anytime in you sorry life of being arrogant old hog.
My qualifications as being pilot or engineer is way over than yours.Basically you are under qualified to lecture me as educationally or logically because of your low IQ level.

I see you as unfit ,arrogant ignorant old man who is on his final payday stage ranting at kids who are doing much better than him what he was doing at their age getting his ego busted after every post he posts on PPRuNe having no shame what so ever for getting flamed by me and others for posting craps.

@ TheBigD

Speculative? Not really. Look at the number of airline pilots in the US and the number of CPL's issued. You will see there are more CPL's out there than jobs. Since you obviously have plenty of time on your hands, feel free to do the research.
Those who can't go through the trouble of reading up on previous posts before shooting off their mouths should not post at all.Those who themselves won't bother to do their own research should not expect others to do it.


What I am telling you and what you do not grasp is that this is a tough profession
What brilliant insight ! Please read post no 54.Also read up on the study done by PWC and Indo American Chambers of Commerce. But you probably won't cause you don't have the time.You have just jumped on the bandwagon to give free advice !
Do whatever you think is right; but sitting around and arguing with us is not going to get you any closer to where you need to be
Just one more silly assumption you made !

Johnny - I'll leave this thread alone to wallow in the depths of idiocy you advocate.

Your English and grammar still expose you as an illiterate fool while you try to argue that at me.

There is a space after a period at the end of a sentence. The same with commas. English has a capital "E" as it is a proper noun... we could go on through every paragraph but it's there for the world to see.

Perhaps I'm getting on in life, true. I've had many knock backs but offer no excuses. They were challenges to overcome and made me better as a person and pilot. Some see barriers, no matter natural, man made, no matter how high, illegitimate or unfair as a reason to work harder. Others see them as reasons to not try or complain.

I have my credentials and log books. I have them certified by several nation's Aviation Authorities. I and many of us do what you simply are inept, unqualified, immature and too lazy to ever be.

I don't dare challenge you on anything, like I don't challenge a mule to eat manure. It's degrading and void of any sense of accomplishment.

Many in the Indian Aviation community are well aware of who I am. Many I had the privilege to fly with were eager to listen, learn and take on board advice from another with experience: from one just as willing and eager to pass it on. I was tough, no denying it. The pilots evaluated, the travelling public and the profession deserve that respect. But fair and honest - a trait unwelcome at the DGCA let alone AI. Those who passed deserved to pass and likewise those who failed.

Your interview experience and airline career to date deems you as a failure.

Yet you can only offer excuses and blame to every one and every thing - never your own ineptitude.

You may not ever wish me at the controls of an aircraft, that's your call. Countless simulator proficiency checks, tens of thousands of hours experience, tertiary qualifications in aviation and all endorsed by said several nation's Aviation Regulatory Authorities deem me acceptable as a senior Examiner of Airmen. So forgive me if I don't take your illiterate ramblings as a "speaker maker" as anything but the eaten manure.

You say your father and grandfather were well respected in their aviation career. I'm sure they were and have no reason to doubt you. By all accounts it would've been an honour to share a cockpit with such men. I also have every reason to believe however that they may see you however as a shameful failure.
