Significance of Flight Training in India

The aviation industry has undergone drastic changes in the last few decades. The airlines were originally a luxury industry for the very wealthy. Over time, flying became more affordable for the average person, but remained a luxury industry. Aviation has recent become an essential industry. The entire world relies on it to move people and products across the world quickly. The modern economy could not exist as we know it without aviation. This, paired with the rapid economic growth of Asia has resulted in a demand for aircraft pilots, cabin crew, and ground personnel unlike ever experienced before.

Increased demand has resulted in increased air traffic, and pilots must be more skilled than ever before. There will be record career opportunities for pilots with the right qualifications. A successful career in aviation depends upon the proper training and location, as well as a professional attitude and desire to be the best.
Often, it is best to train in another country, and return to India for a career upon completion.

Flight Training in India

HM Aviation has tie-ups with schools in Canada, the United States, New Zealand and South Africa. This gives students a wide variety of choices for flight training. Different locations will be best for different people, and HM Aviation helps a student decide which is best for them. Canada and the United States have wide open spaces for flight training, as well as the most advanced aviation industry in the world. New Zealand and South Africa are also very popular locations for flight training. Students training abroad not only get the experience and adventure of training in another country, but make contacts and friendships lasting a lifetime.

Upon returning to India, one must make final preparations before joining the airlines. One must be fully prepared for the selection process including: aptitude tests, psychometric tests, and simulator evaluation. HM Aviation ensures the students are fully prepared for the entire evaluation process.

Every major airline in India has plans to greatly expand their fleets. Indigo Airlines alone, has an order for more than 750 A320 aircraft. Many new airlines are starting up in India, to meet the increasing demand for air travel. It is estimated that Asia will require 216,000 pilots over the next 20 years. India currently has the 9th largest aviation industry in the world, and is estimated to be 3rd largest by 2020 and possibly the largest by 2030. Those choosing a career as an airline pilot will be making a huge contribution to the Indian economy. Never has flight training been so important, and never has there been more opportunities for those with the right qualifications.
