During first 3 months the trainees are with the Ground Training Faculty where they are taught and exposed to subjects like Air Navigation, Principles of Flight, Technical (General & Specific), Aviation Meteorology, Air Regulations and Radio Telephony Restricted (A). There after they are routed to Flight Operations for Flying Training.
Before commencement of flying training on actual aircraft, the students are trained on simulators. They start with basic checks, familiarization with instrumentation on board and approved procedures. The simulator flying exercises progress concurrently with actual aircraft flying training exercises. Bad weather and Emergency conditions and possible technical snags in actual aircraft flying can be generated on simulators to make our students more confident to face such eventualities on actual aircraft.
