Hello guys.


I just finished my 12th With Science and Maths.

I would like to pursue my pilot training now.

The Problem is, which country shall i do it in?

These are the ones i have short listed till now.

http://www.flightmanawatu.co.nz/

Its affiliated with Fly Wings Aviation, and is based in Manawatu, New Zealand.
I will be doing my CPL with CFI course.The best thing is, i dont have to reappear to convert my RT, and no exams for it.
Also, they guarantee inhouse placement for 400 hours after the cadet has finished their training with a CFI course.
The too have a ATPL frozen course.
The total incl accommodation goes to about 65500 NZ dollars.

Second is ATP flight school.
http://www.atpflightschool.com/airli..._career_pilot_program/private.html

Here, i have heard that the Daytona Beachside training is good, but its a bit expensive with CFI, and again i have to shell out extra for accommodation.
The total comes to about 59000 USD....which is pretty expensive.

The final one is from India. Its called Yashair.
http://www.yashair.com/yashair/index.html

Here, they give you a CPL with 200 hours, and a ME on Partenavia P68B.
And also, They give inhouse placements too.The cost comes up to 25 Lacs INR. Around 54000 USD.

Now my query is, Which school do you suggest me to go?

Which license has more value?

Indian CPL or USA/NZ CPL?

Does the quality of the training differ?

Also, should i wait till my graduation? I'll have to wait for 3 more years.


Are there any more better schools?

Please help me. I really need some guidance at this moment. Thanks alot.

Regards,
J  Smile

Jayesh.
Currently the job scene is quite tough out here.....2009 was bad,2010 is better for Aviation.But times are tough.Jobs are rare.
I would think it would be better to complete your graduation before taking a serious decision on this field.

Check harvsair in Canada, Manitoba, Winnipeg.
I believe they are way cheaper than the upper prices, but have surely risen since 2 years ago.
heard couple of indians went there too

Yes. The job market is crap right now. Been trying to find a job in two different countries for almost 2 years and have yet to find anything.

USA license is probably the more useful around the world.
If you get an NZL license that can be instantly converted to an Australian license for a small fee (I think $100).



56 types. 38 countries. 24 airlines.

Jayesh try to get a 4 year degree. A BSc in aviation will get you nowhere. Also there are a lot and i mean a heck of a lot of CPL holders in India right now after the economy tanked. (All those chaps who went and got their CPL's when Mallya was ordering A340's and A380's like vada pav from a streetside vendor). I know three people who were "hired" by IT after their engineering degree and trained all the way to CPL in Arizona after which the economy tanked and they were not absorbed by IT into their pilot pool for further training. All these guys are now biding their time doing clerical jobs until the economy picks up and the airlines start hiring again.

That said i think training in the US is much better only because you will be exposed to more traffic, a more crowded airspace compared to in India. Also coming from a Kiwi acquaintance of mine who's training in the US he says training in the US is cheaper. I personally have no idea about the costs though.

It is cheaper compared to most everywhere else in the world because there are no user fees (yet) and there's much more competition.

Thanks for your replies guys.

Well, i am going for a Degree now.But my ultimate dream is to be a pilot.

I know that the economy sucks atm, but atleast SOME day i will get a job?
Maybe after 3,4, 5 years?
Till that time, i can try out something else.
But the economy cant be down forever.

I'm trying to source out USA atm. Florida sounds the best.

Any suggestions?
Guys, i need your help!

thanks!

Forget about flying during hurricane season. Flight schools shut down for months at a time during the busiest hurricane seasons.

I would strongly recommend flying somewhere on the west coast. CA has great weather overall and in the mornings you get fog often which is good to get real IFR experience. Not to mention california has one of the busiest airspaces in the world and a myriad of challenging airports. AZ or TX would be my other choices.

Jayesh, have you considered flight schools in South Africa?
Phoebus Apollo is one of the good schools there.

http://www.phoebusapollo.co.za

and there is a whole list here

http://www.flight-schools.net

Maybe one of our South African members can help you with information

good luck

Never argue with idiots. They will bring you down to their level, and beat you with experience.
