CPL Holder Outside India

  • Guys if you do hold a DGCA CPL and you intend to go outside India for further flight training (Flight Instructor Ratings) do you need to take an NOC from the DGCA or just inform the DGCA to do so ? If yes, what is the procedure to obtain it and who do i approach for the same ?
  • No noc required. Plz check thoroughly whether ur Indian Cpl will be considered wer u r going, spclly USA. Wen cmng bck to India u will need 200 pic, need to fly 10 hrs patter in india and pass an oral exam @ dgca to become instructor here @ India
  • the key point for noc is if ur additional training/flying abroad is for an endorsement on indian license.
    if you are going abroad for training to add something to a foriegn license and dont intend to add that to indian license then dgca has no say in the matter.
    when u return from abroad u will have to apply for conversion process of the additional ratings from foriegn license, if conversion is accepted by dgca else convert to higher ctegory of license if u meet the requirements (eg ATPL, flight instr )
  • What if I would want to convert the flight instructor ratings from the FAA to the dgca licence later on? Would the DGCA accept that? Me being a holder of licences of both the authorities what would be the best course of action in that case?
  • May be ur pic hours will be count here but u have to fly 10 hrs for AFIR patter flying in india and oral test of dgca for AFIR..
  • Just an insight : Ive done all of my flight training from USA and have subsequently got an FAA CPL with I converted into a DGCA CPL. Now if Id want to do Flight instructor ratings from the states under FAA rules would that be allowed by the DGCA as I hold their licence too? Plus when I do come back to India would the Flight Instructor ratings
  • when you come back to india you will have to do following things:- 1. Fly 10 Hrs patter with any CFI here at any Indian flying club. 2. Appear and pass AFIR oral exam conducted by DGCA evry 3 months. 3. When you have fulfilled the above requirements then you will apply for the AFIR rating and on the date of application you need to have 200 PIC within last 5 yrs of which 50 Hrs PIC is done within last 18 months. Now you only need to confirm from DGCA tht whether you can count your PIC and the instructional PIC you build in USA.
