Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 19 March 2010

Indias Kingfisher Airlines has acquired the capability to offer Joint Aviation Authorities Airline Transport Pilot License (JAA ATPL) Pilot Ground Training course.

 The course, the first of its kind in India outside Europe and the USA, has been made possible by virtue of a technical arrangement with Aviation Pacific Europe. The JAA ATP ground theory courses, comprises 14 aeronautical subjects covering 650 hours of study time, conducted in a classroom or through a distance learning program.

 These exams are valid for 7 years, by which time a pilot must acquire the flying requirements to qualify for a JAA ATPL. For Indian personnel this would mean completing the course at a reduced cost. The JAA ATPL has become a de-facto standard recruitment for employment opportunities in airlines in Europe and even some Middle East countries. Some of the present countries which are on the ICAO curriculum are moving towards the JAA standards.

Considering that there are over 3000 CPL holders in India awaiting job opportunities, this program is an ideal requirement for them to enhance their knowledge and broaden their job prospects.

Kingfisher Training College and Aviation Pacific Europe are now offering the training program in Mumbai. The features of this course include:

- The course examinations will be conducted by the British Council in Mumbai and Delhi, on behalf of the UK Civil Aviation Authorities.

- Examinations in Mumbai will be for the JAA ATP Flight Crew Licenses (FCL -1), that is, for airplanes

- Kingfisher Airlines will conduct this training in its industry-acclaimed training facilities designed by Airbus Industries.

- JAA certified/approved instructors will conduct this programme.
