Good show . Now concentrate on building up your experience. Remember , alcohol , late nights parties and professional flying just don't mix . Good luck - From a veteran pilot.

That's indeed nice to hear. But amount of stress she must have undergone is quite heavy. Good mademoiselle! Best of flying, keep flying high!.

All over world One of the most expensive career course is to learn How to be a trained pilot (approx 20-30 lacs or more as the fees paid in Indian Flying Schools).Many youngsters of India dreams about it but cannot fulfill to go even for enroll due to highest fees that most of the family can never afford.
Anyway well done Apurva Gilche..

BravoApurva. You have achieved your goal with dedication and determination. You have truly followed the wise sayings of Swami Vivekananda. Keep flying higher and higher, with confidence. God Bless.
Edison had said Success is: 99% perspiration and 1% inspiration. In your case, I think, its reverse as your family and friends were always behind you and supportive.

It is a costly..Rs40 L and 2 years.Job prospects are difficult.All airlines are in the doldrums.
You must go abroad to complete.In India one can
never complete the course.
Then training also costs the candidate as companies even after selection do not bear costs...abt 20 L. Take a good look around, there are 9000 CPL unemployed in India.
