ranking of airhostess training institutes of india. name of all the airhostess training instiutes of india. criteria of admission to it

There is no such ranking. Few airlines recruit directly from air hostess training institutes unless they have set up their own aviation training institutes. Criteria for admission to the training institutes are usually pass in 10+2 and good communication skills along with pleasant appearance. However, when it comes to recruiting cabin crew, most airlines have very specific requirements regarding height, looks, personality, and fitness.(04.12.2008)

In the era of online ticketing and reservation of air, road, rail and other means of travel, there would be fewer full time remunerative positions in ticketing. However, the travel agencies, air/ rail, etc and hotels and other tourism organisations would continue to have openings for ticketing personnel. It would always be a better option to look for a more diversified career outlook in travel and tourism.

Sir i want to become a commercial pilot,is it beneficial to take CPL from foreign institutes. please guide me.

The advantage of doing a course abroad is that one can complete it in time. In India, training flights may often be delayed if the flying club does not have the requisite aircraft, fuel or trainers. If you want to come back to India after training abroad, you will have to get an Indian pilots' license. After getting an American pilots' license, one has to get it converted to an Indian one from the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). You may also have to undergo a flying check in India. After the initial license, you will have to get an airline endorsement, which means training on large aircraft like the Boeing 737. The cost of training on such aircraft can work out to Rs 50,000 per hour. Indian Airlines will bear this cost if you join them, but be prepared to sign a seven-year financial bond if you do so. Private airlines charge up to Rs 6 lakh for an endorsement, taking the cost of training abroad to about Rs 15 lakh, if not higher. A new addition for training are the flight simulators though flying clubs do not have this equipment at present. Prospects: After getting an Indian license, one can apply to the airlines for jobs. One may join as a pilot and work upwards to become a Commander.

Before getting a commercial pilot's licence you will have to get private pilot's licence (PPL). Various flying clubs across the country launch courses for PPLs. One such flying club is located at Safdarjang Airport, New Delhi. You may get in touch with them to get the necessary information. As far as air force is concerned they take fresher and provide training. If you are a women or NCC 'C' Certificate Holder you can directly give PILOT APTITUDE BATTERY TEST (PABT), after which you can enter the IAF in flying branch. UPSC also conducts CDS exam through which you can opt for flying branch. Your age should be between 19-23 years (for graduates).

I'm B.Tech(mechanical),passed out in 2006. Now i'm in govt. job but i want know about CPL course. Can I apply for this CPL licence.which are the best institutes where I can apply.Can I get benefit / preference of my B.Tech(mechanical) degree in getting admission in the best CPL institute. what's the whole course fees and duration.Is there any CPL institute where only B.Tech/gredutes can get CPL training. What's the average salary , a newly appointed CPL holder in airline can draw. I also want to inform you that I niether have SPL nor PPL Licence. Please reply as soon as possible?..... (ANEESH KUMAR SINGH)

Cadet Pilots in Air India were recruited last year from among Indian nationals who are Engineering/ Science graduates and the same scheme may be offered by other airlines. You could, therefore, look out for such options. However, I doubt you would get any preference for admission for admission to CPL course of any institute. The total cost of training for CPL works out to approximately Rs 17 lakhs. Actually, when you are recruited right after your CPL, the salary is not very high, but once your on-the-job training period is over, you can earn about Rs 50000 to Rs 1 lakh per month based on your flying hours and work experience. Different airlines may have their own remuneration packages, so this is just an approximation. List of flying schools recognized by the DGCA are listed on

Is it necessary to study aeronautical engineering for taking up avionics stream. If one does not take aeronautical engineering what route of study to be adopted?.... (Nazia Nizamuddin)

Avionics literally means aviation electronics. It is the science and technology of the development and use of electrical and electronics devices in aviation. In essence it comprises all electronic systems designed for use on an aircraft. If not aerospace or aeronautical engineering, it may be possible to take the electronics engineering. The Aircraft Maintenance Engineering licensing course of DGCA also includes avionics.

(surya prakash)

If the flying school offers the option of BSc Aviation then it would be a regular course. However, if that is not provided, you have to pursue your graduation through distance education. If you wish to pursue a bachelor's degree course full time then you have to be able to coordinate your flying training accordingly. Among your choice of bachelor's degree courses would be B A, B Sc, B Com, BBA, BTS, etc.

I wanted to become a Flight-steward but failed because of my short hight (5'5"). Some of the private training institutes advised me to pursue the course of a 'Ground Crew'. My Question is after pursuing the course by 1 lakh rupees what about the future and salary of a Ground Crew ? can I become a Flight- steward on the basis of my experience thereafter ? please answer in detail.(Sayantan)

You do not need to pursue any course to join an airline as ground crew. There are many equally good jobs available in banking, insurance, retail, hospitality and other service sectors which you could try for. There is no provision of becoming a flight steward after working as a ground crew or relevant experience. if you do not fulfil the basic eligibility criteria.

I keenly want to pursue Aerospace eng. as my future/career Madam, I've passed out with 57% marks (Bihar Board) in 2005 on 10th of June I'm going to give entrance exam for AME course, IIA Delhi. But I'm interested in space eng. I want to become an astronaut & work out on different researches along with NASA. How can I proceed my career according to my wish. I want to do & Ph.D both in institution/university in India & Abroad, but just now I am busy in preparation for AME course.(Amrita Singh)

AME would not lead you towards M Sc and Ph D in space sciences. Instead it would open up opportunities in the airline industry, which is currently doing well. Your academic record is not an indicator of potential for an academically demanding career such as space sciences. However, if you want to make the right moves, aim for B Sc Physics and then M Sc and Ph D. Employment in NASA is open only to American citizens, but you can join India's space organisation ISRO through the various openings it offers to engineers and scientists.

The Airports Authority of India conducts the selection process for entry into the cadre of Manager Air Traffic Control who can be posted anywhere in India and Superintendent (ATC), usually posted region-wise. Degree in Science with Physics or Maths with minimum 60% marks in aggregate or 60% Diploma in Electronics Engineering from a recognised polytechnic below 25 years may apply for Superintendent (ATC) posts. Manager Air Traffic Control posts are open to first class engineering graduates in Electronics/ Telecommunication/Radio Engineering or equivalent or first class Science graduates with Physics or Maths as principal subject and age below 28 years. Scope is good, but your career progression would be linked to seniority and the job is high pressured. MBA would offer more scope for employment, growth and diversity.
