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?
