AeSI calls for Multi-crew Pilot License system in India

 Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Memorial Lecture

“Dr. Kalam was one of the chief architect who shaped the technologies for defence preparedness of India” said Dr. Satish Reddy while delivering the Dr. Kalam memorial lecture on 26 July 2019 at New Delhi in a function organized by Aeronautical Society of India.

Dr. Saraswat, member NITI AYOG and the chief guest of the function, while appreciating the recent achievements of DRDO for ASAT and of ISRO for successful launch of Chandrayaan-2,spoke about the need for higher focus on industry 4.0 and launch of low cost satellite systems.

Civil aviation in India will see induction of more than 1000 aircrafts in next 7-10 years, thereby needing additional 15,000 plus pilots. Conventionally a person needs about 18-24 months of training for a basic pilot license, besides a cost of Rs 20 lakhs plus. MPL (multi-crew pilot license) can produce a co-pilot in just 10-12 months (total 240 hours including 210 hours in simulator) at much less costs.

This kind of pilot licensing has been accepted by ICAO (international civil aviation organization) in the year 2006 and many developed countries since then has already adopted it. It is high time that India also adopts it in view of huge demands of creating pilots for Indian skies. AeSI will spearhead an awareness/update initiative in India in this direction for regulatory approvals and adoption” said Dr. R.K. Tyagi, President AeSI & former chairman HAL/Pawan Hans Helicopters.

Aeronautical Society of India is the oldest society of free India, formed in the year 1948 and is dedicated for the cause of aerospace and aeronautics in the country. Many eminent scientists like Dr. Kalam, Air chief Marshal Krishna swami and Dr. Saraswat have been leading this society in the past."
