Let your career as pilot reach new heights

Asia will require 216,000 new pilots over the next 20 years. This is due to growth, and does not include retirement or attrition. Opportunities exist unlike ever before for pilots, and all aviation personnel.

To take advantage of these opportunities, one must have the proper flight training. HM Aviation has a cadet program which prepares the student to go abroad for flight training with interviews, psychometric testing, and the class 1 aviation medical. The flight training, takes place in Canada, the United States, South Africa or New Zealand, depending upon the student’s preference. The private and commercial pilot’s licenses are included in the flight training as well as the multi-engine and instrument ratings.

Things look good for the graduate returning to India. India currently has the 9th largest aviation industry in the world. By 2020, India could have the 3rd largest, and the world’s largest by 2030. Airlines still must ensure they have properly trained candidates, and the HM Aviation cadet program prepares the student with the DGCA conversion, airline interview preparation, and preparation for the simulator evaluation.

Pilot Job

Upon entering the airlines, the candidate has many opportunities. Usually, the candidate will start off on an Airbus A320, or the Boeing 737. Some may start their career on the Q400, or ATR. All are rewarding ways to start a career in aviation.

Most new pilots start their career on domestic routes, building experience and seniority. The pilot can advance to international routes after flying the domestic routes for some time. Routes flown may include: Bangkok, Colombo, or Dubai. Some of the airlines fly across the ocean to places like Sydney, Johannesburg, or London. All these routes and more are open to the pilot who puts forth the effort. The airlines also offer free or discounted flights to employees and families. These benefits start soon after joining an airline.

Some choose careers as corporate pilots. While not having an exact schedule like an airline, a corporate pilot may go to places like Athens one week, and Tokyo the next. In this career, one goes to many exciting places, never knowing where you’ll be next.

Whatever one’s personal goals are, the aviation industry offers many exciting careers. Aviation offers careers with great pay, excitement, and the opportunity to see the world. Few careers offer the excitement that a career in aviation offers. Now is the perfect time to launch this career!

Why do Flight Training Abroad?

All of Asia and especially India will be looking to hire more pilots than at any time in history. Aspiring pilots who wish to take advantage of this hiring boom will have to get the best flight training available.

Although Asia has the fastest growing aviation sector in the world, it is relatively new. Powered flight began in the United States in 1903, and the aviation industry became born in North America and Europe shortly after. World War 1 & 2 saw tremendous growth and development in the aviation industry. The airline industry became born after World War 2, and its role became more and more important with time.

America manufactured most the airlines with Boeing and McDonnell Douglas. America set the standard for both licensing and the entire aviation industry. The flight schools knew exactly what the airlines required, and how to train pilots to standard.

Recently, Asia has become an economic superpower. Its large population, and vast area has created a never before seen demand for air travel. Pilots, cabin crew, and ground personnel are required in numbers never before thought possible. Although India has flying schools, they are not as well established as flying schools in North America. India’s large population for its land area limits the number of flying schools in the country, so many students travel abroad for training.


North America has a vast land mass, with a much smaller population. This makes Canada and the United States ideal locations for flight training. Canadian and American licenses are recognized and respected around the world. Such licenses make for easy conversions and employment anywhere.
Students returning home to India after completing flight training must still convert their licenses to DGCA standards, but are well prepared to do so. Programs such as the HM Aviation Cadet Program prepare the student for both the DGVA conversion and airline selection process upon returning to India.

Another advantage to training abroad is experiencing another culture, and having an adventure so few people ever have. This is a great start for someone wanted to get paid to see the world, as does a pilot. Having foreign licenses and experience is something valuable to an airline, as they do not have to retrain one on foreign regulations.

For those wishing a life of travel and adventure, flight training abroad is an exciting start to one of the most exciting careers the world has ever produced. Why not get your career started today?

Flight Training in New Zealand

HM Aviation ensures the student gets the best training possible. The private pilot license, night rating, multi-engine rating and instrument rating will all be completed during the student’s stay in New Zealand.

Upon returning to India, HM Aviation prepares the student for the airline selection process including: aptitude testing, psychometric evaluation, interviews, and simulator evaluation.

Get Facts Right for Those Who Dream About a Flying Career

Flying is an exciting career; as exciting a career could possibly be. Every day is different, and there are great opportunities to meet people and travel. There are probably more misconceptions about flying than any other career. A few of these misunderstandings should be cleared up before one decides upon a flying career.

Myths
 
. Pilots make more money than they can ever spend. Senior captains of airlines or corporate operators do make very good salaries. They have a lot of experience in the industry, and a lot of seniority with the organization they work for. A pilot, especially a senior captain has a great deal of responsibility; millions of dollars worth of aircraft, and hundreds of lives. The first job a pilot works at will most likely have a very modest salary. One has to work their way up and prove their ability. Like other professionals, pilots earn their salaries.

. The autopilot flies the airplane, not leaving much work for the pilot. Modern airliners and corporate jets have very sophisticated autopilots. They fly the route they are programmed, and many can even land an aircraft. Most of the training aircraft do not have autopilots, and this is when the pilots learn to fly. Even on airliners, autopilots are a convenience. The pilot is still responsible for the safety of the aircraft, and must be able to react in an emergency or abnormal situation. The autopilot just keeps the pilot from having to hand-fly the aircraft for the entire flight.

The Down-side
 
. Becoming a pilot involves a large financial investment. Becoming a pilot is one of the most expensive careers one can possibly train for. To spend this money, one has to want it badly.

. Irregular shifts/ work hours. Aviation is a 24/7, 365 days a year profession. This includes holidays such as Diwali, Christmas, New Years, and all others. Although a pilot’s time off make actually be greater than a lot of other professions, it is highly irregular. This also means being on call 24 hours a day for a few weeks of the month. There will be no guaranteed time off to be with friends and family, especially for less senior pilots.

. Stressful work environment. Landing and taking off at busy international airports, and following air traffic control instructions can be very stressful. Keeping a tight schedule, responding to the airline’s demands, while doing your job efficiently takes a lot of effort and stamina.

The Up-side
 
. An exciting career. Few careers in the world offer the excitement of being a pilot. Every day, every situation is different. Different destinations, different weather, meeting all kinds of new people are part of being a pilot. Very few careers provide this.

. Opportunity for travel, on and off work. Airline and corporate pilots have the opportunity to fly to destinations all over the world. Airlines usually have reduces or even free airfare for their employees on their vacations. Even charter pilots have the opportunity to travel to different cities all the time.

The Challenge
 
Once you truly decide flying is for you, there is no turning back! If you want it bad enough, you will meet all challenges, and do whatever it takes to be successful. Like every career in the world, flying has its good and bad points. Like every professional, one must take the good and the bad. If flying, or an aviation career is in your blood, there has never been a better time to get a career going!

Flight Training for Indian Students

Asia is on the verge of the greatest expansion of its aviation industry in history. India is expected to be at the top of the expansion.

Most student pilots from India and Asia go to North America for their flight training. The number one country is the United States. The United States is the country which founded aviation, and has the leading aviation industry in the world. It is a country with a diverse landscape and climate. A student can truly experience every situation encountered in flying. The United States also has the most advanced training aircraft available, with top of the line single-engine, multi-engine and glass cockpit aircraft. The United States also has a lot of highly experienced, dedicated flight instructors.

Many students spend a year or two after flight training instructing in the United States. This is a great start to an aviation career, and allows new pilots to pass their knowledge on to students. A lot of students training in North America go to Canada for training. Canada has a colder climate than most of the United States, and its aviation industry is smaller.Canada tends to have a friendlier atmosphere for living and training, and that draws a lot of students.

http://hmaviation.net/contact.html
There are hundreds of flight schools in the USA available for Indian students to train. Some of the more popular locations are: Florida, Arizona, and California. Florida is the most popular location in the United Stated for flight training. There are a great number of flying schools in every part of the state. The climate is pleasant, but thunderstorms are frequent, especially in the summer months. There are famous attractions such as Disney World, and many beautiful beaches.

Arizona has a desert climate. This has the advantage of many days of unlimited visibility. Rain is infrequent, but it rains hard when it does! There are tourists’ attractions such as the Grand Canyon, which would be great for cross-country flights, as well as to take pictures for back home. July and August can be uncomfortably hot during the day time but it does cool off at night.

California has many good flight schools, although not as many as Florida. California has famous tourist attractions such as Disney Land, and miles of beaches. There are many exciting places to go for cross-country flights in and near California. California is one of the busiest airspaces in the world, which can be a very challenging environment for both experienced and student pilots alike.
There are a great number of flying schools available in North America, depending upon the student’s preferences. Opportunities await for those who seriously want it!
