While the trainees of Rajiv Gandhi Academy for Aviation Technology struggle to obtain pilot licence, the institute struggles to receive flying training licence from directorate general of civil aviation (DGCA).
A trainee of the institute has to pass flying tests and written examination conducted by DGCA along with minimum 40 hours of flying experience to obtain a private flight license (PPL) and a minimum of 200 hours for commercial flight licence (CFL). The institute conducts PPL course with one year duration and PPL and CPL courses combined for three years.
The students of PPL and CPL course from the batch of 2013 are yet to complete the required flying hours for the license. Jerome Murphy Jersey
