Need inputs on this from my forum friends from India. I understand that inhouse Boeing conversion training for greenhorns by the private airline operators like Jet airways is in real shambles. They are the only Boeing inhouse trainer in the country anyway. Other private airline operators like Spicejet dispatch their greenhorns overseas, I believe. I have learnt that typically a batch of 25 takes more than a year to get to the right seat on a routine commercial flight inspite of passing their DGCA written exam in the very first attempt and completing simulater training / checkride within the originally prescribed hours ie without requiring any extension in the training hours. Is it because there is a glut of first officers in the Boeing fleet or simply a training outfit gone bankrupt? Howcome then, that female trainee pilots among the greenhorns manage to complete the same training within NINE months? A look on the progress of all past and present training batches has the same story to tell. Female greenhorns have always managed to get to the right seat of a routine commercial flight much ahead of their male batchmates. Are Indian female pilots better working than their male compatriots? They are understandably rostered for LOFT on flights departing from Mumbai ( which is the training base ). But the male trainee pilots have to invariably fly as PAX for 4 to 5 hours to another base for their LOFT. In the bargain, they end up doing a 11 hours FDTL for 3 hours LOFT. What quality of LOFT one will assimilate after being so fatigued is not difficult to understand. What about the DGCA? Dont they watch over and regulate?
