    2. 2. AVIATION WATCHMAKING AIR TRAVEL SAFER THROUGHMORE EFFICIENT TRAINING PRACTICES AND REVIEW SYLLABI FOR PILOTS IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 2
    3. 3. BASIC PILOT TRAINING  DEVELOPED WORLD : PPL – CPL – ATPL INDIA : PPL – CPL - ATPL SIMILAR SYLLABI AND LICENSING IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 3
    4. 4. ROUTE TO AN AIRLINE COCKPIT DEVELOPED WORLD PPL CPL Experience in General Aviation AirlinerINDIA CPL Airliner IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 4
    5. 5. HISTORY OF FLYING TRAINING IN INDIA Pre – 1986 – Flying Club based Establishment of Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi in 1986. Average output 20 CPL per year IGRUA equipped with best aircraft & simulators for the time 2005 onwards massive pilot demand. IGRUA could not meet the demand Mushrooming of flying clubs in India IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 5
    6. 6. HISTORY OF FLYING TRAINING IN INDIA (Contd..) Training Abroad (mixed results) Spurious Flying Clubs abroad & in India Inability of regulator to check the quality 2008 - IGRUA Management handed over to CAE for ten years Now IGRUA with enhanced productivity produced 80 CPLs last year This year Plan is to produce 100. IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 6
    7. 7. IGRUA PRODUCT Vs REST Government has invested heavily for infrastructure Airfield, hangars, dispersals, ATC, Nav-aids, ground School, hostels, aircraft, simulators, fuel farm, fire services – all owned by IGRUA. Also Maintenance of all these by IGRUA (Expensive) Can accommodate 200 trainees Has 25 aircraft including 2 multi engine aircraft Has 5 simulators Well established Ground school Entry through All-India competitive exam IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 7
    8. 8. IGRUA PRODUCT Vs REST (Contd…) Own vehicles, hostels and mess, captive power generators, own water supply, solar geysers, own township, own shopping centre, etc. In short – all that is needed for comfort and safe rest for aircrew and maintenance crew Dedicated experienced unmatched instructional staff ( Ground/Air) Known as IIT/IIM of Aviation Training Rest of the flying clubs/schools in the country generally have 2-3 aircraft and associated staff Quality training possible only when assets and infrastructure along with instructional staff scaled up into a big institution like IGRUA. Financial feasibility possible only when scaled up/Government support through subsidy (IGRUA has both) IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 8
    9. 9. IGRUA PRODUCT Vs REST (Contd…) Rest of the clubs fall short badly. Hence also not financially feasible But started due either brand value/profit motive. Both not achievable – generally follow lower pricing/short cuts quality wise to survive Indian Aviation suffers as a consequence IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 9
    10. 10. SOLUTION Replicate IGRUA type institution and have 4-5 big zonal flying schools in India IGRUA exists in North. Central India has CAE/AAI owned NFTI at Gondia near Nagpur. Create one each in East, West and South Spell out min infrastructure to 8 or more aircraft along with FNPT simulators and a proper ground school. Any school with less than this be allowed training only upto PPL level Scaling up will ensure balance between commercial and professional interest. Quality will improve IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 10
    11. 11. SOLUTION (Contd.) Mergers and acquisitions of smaller flying clubs be aided by Government and encouraged Age, Education, Qualification, Common Entrance Test Mandate IGRUA to run an Instructors Course to improve standards of trainees Surveillance over these 5-6 schools possible by DGCA with its limited staff. Quality will improve IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 11
    12. 12. REVIEW SYLLABI DGCA follows ICAO syllabus for CPL ICAO syllabi for CPL not focussed on Airlines but on General Aviation Induction by Airlines only with much greater experience. (CPL 200 hrs. airlines abroad induct only at 1500 hrs experience) In India entry to airlines at 200 hours India must adopt MPL syllabus which is designed specifically for entry into airlines. Its training methodology prepares pilots for airlines from ab-initio stage. IGRUA : ISO 9001 : 2008 CERTIFIED 12
