I’m back with yet another article related to the Aviation Industry. So, are you interested in becoming a Commercial Pilot? If yes, then this article will be of much help to you! Are you worried about the high training expenses that have to incur in order to become a Commercial Pilot? If you are from India, you may become a holder of CPL at low cost! In this article, I’ll describe in detail about how 12th Science students may become Commercial Pilots. This article also covers details like educational qualifications, medical fitness requirements etc.
Educational Qualifications required to join CPL training programs-
To become a Commercial Pilot, one must possess CPL (Commercial Pilot Licence). This Licence is issued after a candidate clears the training program from an Institute recognized by the Civil Aviation Authority of that particular country (DGCA in case of India).
But to join CPL training program, a candidate has to meet certain minimum Educational qualifications requirements. Here they are-
* The candidate must have cleared 10+2 Science stream schooling with Physics and Mathematics as the main subjects (age of candidate should not be less than 17 years when the course starts)
* Non Science stream students may pursue the required subjects through NIOS. NIOS schooling can be used to meet the above mentioned requirements. Apart from NIOS, non science stream students may also pursue the required subjects as private candidates from their respective state boards too!
* The minimum marks required is 50% (may vary from Institute to Institute) aggregate marks
Fitness (Medical) standards to be met-
A Commercial Pilot has to be fit- physically and mentally. That’s why, during the selection process, lots of emphasis is laid on the medical status of the candidate. Here are some medical standards set by authorities, which interested candidates have to satisfy in order to get selected into CPL training program-
* Class 1 Medical certificate is needed before joining the CPL training course.
* Eye sight specifics- one eye has to have perfect eyesight, without any defects (6/6). It is allowed to have certain imperfection in the eyesight of the other eye (6/9). But this imperfection should be correctable to 6/6
* Candidate must not have any serious physical deformity. Also, he/she should not have any kind of mental disorder, or any history of having such mental illness
Process to become a Commercial Pilot after 12th Science –
In case you have passed 12th Science, you may join a CPL training program if you meet the above mentioned educational and medical standards. You may approach private institutes, fill forms and get started.
Most institutes have a Pilot Aptitude Test, which a candidate must clear, in order to get selected. The Aptitude test is a 3 stage process, comprising of- written examination, Interview and the Aptitude Test.
The written exam deals with subjects like- Mathematics, Geography, General Knowledge, English skills etc. This is followed by an Interview.
Candidates who manage to clear these two stages are called for the third stage- Pilot Aptitude Test. After the final stage, medical examination is conducted. Finally, a merit list is prepared, based on the performance of candidates in each stage of the selection process as well as the medical examination. Based on merit, deserving candidates will be selected and trained to become Commercial Pilots!
Once selected for the CPL training, students with no prior flying experience are given Ab initio CPL training. The duration of the entire program may vary from one institute to another. On an average, it could last anywhere between 15-18 months. Most flying schools offer combination of Ground Training and Flying Training. Simulator Training is also given to candidates.
Ground Training consists of subjects like Air Navigation, Aviation Meteorology, Air Regulations, RTR, Aircraft General and Technical Knowledge.
Flying Training, at first, will be supervised. A flight instructor will assist and guide the candidate at start. To obtain the CPL, a candidate must complete 200 hours of flight time. This flight time is usually made up of time as pilot in command, cross-country flight time as pilot in command, instrument time and flight time by night.
After clocking the required flying hours, one may apply for the CPL. After passing the exams held by the DGCA (subjects are- Air Navigation, Air Regulation, Aviation Meteorology, Aircraft Technical & General knowledge and Aircraft Specific knowledge), successful candidates will be awarded the CPL! Passing marks (or percentage) for these exams held by DGCA are 70%.
Once a candidate completes the training and has the CPL, he/she may apply for job at commercial airlines or charter companies. But possessing CPL is not the end of it! After getting CPL, you may also have to spend money for type rating. Based on the airline that you join and the aircraft you will fly, you will be given specific training (keeping that aircraft in mind). You will be asked to pay expenses of this type rating by the airlines!
Also read: Air Hostess courses in India
Airlines these days prefer pilots possessing the ATPL (Airline Transport Pilot License). For possessing the ATPL, candidate must have at least 1500 hours of flight time under his/her belt. He/she also has to pass 4 of the exams mentioned in the previous paragraph!
In short, getting a CPL is not the end of the process! You must be willing to keep the learning process a continuous one!

Instructions regarding CPL training have been provided in the article. Please read it.
I m in 10th standard i want to become pilot?
Sir I really aspire to become a pilot but I have heard that the job opportunities are pretty less in this field ,is it true ?
Well, there exist many opportunities. But thanks to dull economic conditions, this field has lost its old sheen (a bit).
i have two heard different comments from many people on quora and different websites.
some say ki there is scope in aviation(commercial pilot) as many airlines are launching and some say that you do not get jobs quickly. Risk in that field. How far is it true.
Durvesh, well, freshly trained pilots will have to settle for less paying jobs for some time. The market is quite competitive these days. Airlines want experienced pilots. But if you have skills, aptitude and patience, you may build a successful career gradually.

Manish, you may join directly after 12th, no problem with that. Duration depends on the institute. IGRUA, for example, has B.Sc. course also taught, along with CPL training. It takes 3 years to complete that program.
When they will conduct this exam

Dear Arun Sir
I want to be Pilot. I want to do a course in USA, is this feasible? How to get into the course after my 12th Std. ? How much would be approx. cost? Thanks – Shubhanu
Shubhanu, I’m not knowledgeable about the educational qualifications required in the USA. In India, after 12th Science (with Maths subject), you may pursue Flying training. The fees would be 25-35 Lakhs, depends on the institute.
In many sites it is shown that 4 years degree is necessary for pilot . Now I am doing b.sc biotechnology and it of 3 years . So, can I become a pilot and how.??
You may become a Pilot, Tejvir. Actually the minimum qualification is 10+2 Science stream (with maths and physics subject).
I wanted to ask that if we do aeronautical engineering first and then go for aviation, will there be an advantage in the field of aviation by doing so?
How much time does it take to get a job as a pilot after having CPL in hand ?
Rajat, there will be a slight advantage. Airlines gives preference to pilots who are graduates in relevant fields. Talking about time to land a job after getting CPL, it can’t be predicted.
how do i apply for any institute for being a commercial pilot and get selected in that
and how i get my cpl.
Mahima, most of them have entrance exams. Just fill the exam form, pay the exam fees and appear for the exam.
Sir, right now I am in class 10th and I am hoping to get result above 80%.Now I am going to take subjects pcm plus physical education. Am I going correct . Now after 12th class what shall I do? Which flying school shalk I join? Any entrance exame I have to give
Akshay, PCM subjects are enough. You will have to appear for entrance test at the flying school to secure admission there.
WHat is the practicla use of maths in aviation or seamen or army officer maths is not related to the actual work they do but still the qualifications are set to 12t pcm
hi so i will be clearing class 12 next year after which i want to be a Commercial Pilot abroad. So what do i need to do in order to apply in foreign colleges with aviation and probably what kind of marks do i have to secure in ISC science boards???
When do we have to give the fees ? Should we have to give it before the pilot aptitude test or after we get through ?
Ruhi, fees for training has to be given at after clearing the entrance test and securing admission. However, there will be a small examination fess that you will have to deposit before the examination.
how to get free pilot training under government?
requirements for free training ?
now I am 9th standard in want can i do after 10th for becoming commerial pilot
Shubha, go for Science stream (with Mathematics subject) after 10th.
Is there any graduation course required or not..??? Or can we go just after 12th exam or result..?? Plzz give me the advise.. So that i can get a cpl..
Aashish, you may go directly after completing 12th. Graduation is not necessary.
arun can you suggest best flying school in india cheap and best and is their any entrance for flying school
Kumkum, no institute is going to be cheap. A very well known one is IGRUA (Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Academy).
Sir my eye sight is -1.50 can I eligible to become pilot
If it can be corrected, then yes.
sir I want to become a pilot after 12 with sci stream but my eye sight is weak can I eligible to become a pilot
Deepak, if it is correctable, you may become a Pilot.
sir,any other place with low fees..and can u say what will be the total fees for studying pilot??
Fintu, in India the fees is 25-35 Lakh rupees (may vary from one institute to another). You may try joining the IAF as a Pilot. After serving there, you may retire and become a Commercial Pilot afterwards!

I want to become pilot .
Please tell me full details of entrance exam.(name of exam, total Marks ,how many Marks requie etc)
Pruthvi, basically is called the Pilot Aptitude test. It is followed by other tests like personal interview and medical examinations. I’m not sure about the total marks and minimum qualifying marks though. You will get that information from a Flying School.
are you a pilot?
No, I’m not.
hi sir is aeronautical engineering degree important to become a pilot and my height is 5 feet and iam 14 years old is height necessary to become a pilot and my eye sight is -4.5 and i am using a lens does my eye sight affect my career
Degree doesn’t matter, Adithya. And about medical standards and eyesight criteria, I’ve written a post on it. You’ll be able to find it on the ‘related posts’ section.
Hello, I’m a Cambridge student and im studying igcse right now
I would like to know that if i continue cambridge till 12th then will i get an admission in an Indian aviation institute, or should i change my board?

Hiii, Am a 11th student from Commerce Stream and i am interested to become a Pilot, Its my dream to become a Pilot, Please tell me how to become a pilot, what should i do to become a pilot….

can i join air force after nos 12 science ?
I have a huge intrest in flying. But we cant afford to pay the amount of fees. I need to know which is the cheapest flying school fees. Upto 3Lakhs or 4 Lakhs. I have good marks in every subject.
Sujay, I don’t think there exists Flying Schools in India that fall in the fees range mentioned by you. You may try joining and IAF, go for SSC (Short Service Commission) and then become a CPL! It costs very very less to go through that process. But becoming a Pilot in IAF is not an easy task!
SIr by graduation I meant ENGINEERING . Will it be an advantage for my aviation career ?
Actually no, Sachin. As I mentioned before, your Flying Skills, Pilot Aptitude, Flying training record and Simulator test results will be the factors that determine how well you’ll climb up the career ladder.
Is this stream too difficult???
Ayush, it is not too difficult, but you must have that Aptitude though.
Sir, is graduation an advantage for a pilot in terms of jobs prospects/salary?
Can a person joining a flying school a the same (or even better) career as a pilot ?
Pleases answer ASAP…thanks 😀
Graduation won’t be an advantage. It is how well you clear your training and how well you perform in simulator tests (at time of selection) that determines your prospects.

Hello , Iam in class 11th science
My dream is to become a pilot
I have few questions please try to answer them
1. Which test should I give after 12th to join the cpl school ?
2 . Do pilots get jobs quickly ?
3 . What is is minimum salary of a pilot
4. Can a little healthy / fat person join cpl school
5. After how long I’ll finish the course start working and become a pilot ?
Aaron, you will have to approach the Flying School first. They will give details about the Pilot Aptitude Test and Interview that they conduct. Regarding jobs, you will have to earn some Flight hours quick and fast after getting CPL. In that case, you may even have to work as Ferry Pilot first. Minimum salary at start for Ferry type could be around 50k (depends on many factors). Regarding that fat person thing, I can’t say surely, it depends on Medical examinations that will be held.
