For students from India who wish to fly for airlines in India, Skyhawk Aviation trains you in accordance with DGCA requirements; our India Airline Program meets all minimum DGCA requirements. Successful completion of the airline program will earn you the necessary South African Civil Aviation Authority (SA-CAA) ratings and required DGCA flight hours, which will allow you to convert your licenses and ratings upon return to India.
All Skyhawk India programs are SA-CAA Part 141, which is considered professional career training. Only schools which are SA-CAA-approved and have approved training syllabi can be so designated. Under Part 141 training, the quality of student performance is measured through progressive flight exams (phase checks). All training is documented and maintained to SA-CAA standards.

Pricing includes all flight exams, written exams, books and uniforms. A serious student can complete the Airline Program in approximately 12 to 16 months. Please use our contact form, and we will send a complete breakdown of our course prices
