What sets us apart?

Civil Aviation Courses (Ab initio)


Student Pilot Licence

Students must pass a test administered by the institute’s Chief Flying Instructor (CFI) and a DGCA approved person to qualify for the DGCA-required SPL. An applicant must be sixteen years old and have finished Class 10th or equivalent from a Recognized Board in order to obtain an SPL or Student Pilot License. He or she must also be medically fit and possess a DGCA-issued medical certificate. The student receives the SPL after passing an oral test with the Chief Flight Instructor of the flying school he has enrolled with on-air regulations, navigation, and aviation meteorology, as well as aircraft and engines.


An SPL allows a student pilot to begin training and log the hours needed to progress to the next level of flying, the PPL.


Private Pilot Licence

This licence qualifies a pilot to fly non-commercially in the aircraft specified on the licence. With night and instrument ratings, PPL licensees can also fly at night. An individual must complete ground school and a minimum of 50 hours of flight instruction in order to obtain a PPL licence. 


Because a private pilot licence permits you to fly into and out of any civil airport, you can do everything from flying to a neighbouring airport for lunch to flying across the nation or even around the world without ever stepping foot on an aircraft. A private pilot can provide rides to friends and family, practise manoeuvres, or participate in one of the many great organisations that introduce people to flying.


Eligibility Criteria

  • You should have completed 10th grade with Physics and Maths as required topics.
  • For the SPL test, you must be at least 16 years old.
  • A DGCA-authorised doctor will conduct the Class II Medical (Indian). You must be medically fit according to the DGCA’s requirements.
  • Duration of 6-7 months.


Commercial Pilot Licence

The qualifying requirement for this licence necessitates an in-depth course in piloting management from highly trained and professional flight instructors, as well as a minimum of 200 hours of flying time in single-engine and/or multi-engine aircraft. A certified commercial pilot may operate an aircraft as pilot-in-command for pay or hire, as well as transport people or property for pay or hire.

To put it in another form, having a commercial pilot license allows you to earn money as a pilot. Commercial pilots are compensated for flying freight and passengers as well as doing additional tasks including aerial surveys and search and rescue. In order to acquire a CPL Licence students require to undergo an elaborate Ground School of 350 hours, and a minimum Flying Training of 200 hours.

Eligibility Criteria

  • To become a pilot in India you must be an Indian national.
  • You should be between the ages of 18 and 32.
  • From a recognised school, 10+2 with Physics and Maths. Students who do not study science might apply to the National Institute of Open School (www.nos.org) to fulfil the eligibility conditions.
  • Class II Medical (Indian) to be conducted by DGCA authorised doctor You should be medically fit as per the standards laid down by DGCA
  • Duration of 18-24 months approx.
  • Ability to read, speak, write, and comprehend English

Note: Applicants can also apply for B.Sc. in Aviation. Enquire for more information.

Advance pilot programmes

Instrument Rating​

After obtaining your private pilot licence, earning your instrument rating is the next natural step. When a pilot has an instrument rating, the flying zone in which he or she may safely operate grows. You’ll learn how to fly safely in bad weather and get your pilot’s licence. The instrument rating is an add-on to a private pilot or commercial pilot licence that allows the pilot to fly under instrument flying regulations.

The instrument pilot training is meant to prepare pilots to fly in low-visibility conditions such as dense cloud cover or heavy rain. The flying lessons in this course teach pilots how to manoeuvre an aircraft purely using instruments in situations where they can’t rely on their visual senses.

For a pilot who wants to increase flying safety, an instrument rating is required.

A pilot having a Multi-Engine Land (MEL) rating can be the pilot-in-command of an aircraft with more than one engine. Pilots with multi-engine ratings will notice a significant boost in aircraft performance, including increased speed, power, and rate of climb. It’s thrilling and satisfying to manage the complexity and effort of a multi-engine aircraft.

The multi-engine land rating is an “add-on” to a single-engine land certificate, whether private, commercial, or ATP.

Both VFR and IFR operations will be addressed for this rating.

The multi-engine land rating has no minimum time requirements, however, you will need an instructor endorsement for flight and ground instruction before taking the check ride. Only an oral test and a practical check ride are necessary; there is no written exam.

While a multi-engine rating can be added to a private pilot licence, it is usually more cost-effective to wait until a pilot obtains a commercial pilot certificate and an instrument rating.

Multi-Engine Rating​

Instructor Rating​

Do you want to start your career as a Flight Instructor? Being a Flight Instructor is a dream come true for many aviation aspirants because they get to make a career out of their passion for flying and at the same time enjoy the rewards of being a teacher. One can also work towards becoming an international Commercial Pilot by getting paid for flying while increasing flying hours.

For aspirants who want to become a Flight Instructor, Orient Flights Aviation Academy (OFAA) offers Flight Instructor Endorsement Program, to upgrade CPL holders into Flight Instructors.

Flight Instructor Rating (FIR) is required to be held by Commercial Pilot Licence holders to be employed as a Flight Instructor (FI) for the purpose of delivering lessons and training to students. The syllabus of training involves classroom lessons, role-play of simulated flights and practical flight instructions. This course primary covers the subject of Flight Instructional Techniques & Principles.

A type rating is what permits prospective pilots to fly larger commercial jet planes. A type rating is a minimum level that standardising authorities, like the DGCA in India, demand in order to operate specific types of aircraft. In addition to the original commercial pilot’s licence and specialised aeroplane class training, type rating certificates are necessary. 

Pilots must first determine the type of plane they wish to fly before earning a type rating. The possibilities are numerous, but it’s probably best to pick a plane that’s easily available and has plenty of employment to go around.

After that, pilots must complete a series of tests, including thousands of hours of flying training, written examinations, and more.

Mountain Flying

The ability to fly across the magnificent Rocky Mountains is one of the most thrilling aspects of being a pilot in India. Mountain flying may be the pinnacle of a career of flying, with rugged cliffs, high deserts and grasslands, and a plethora of intriguing public-use airports. 

Mountain flying is a dangerous sport. Narrow, sloped runways, one-way airports, density heights above 10,000 feet, and unpredictable and rapid weather changes will put any pilot’s decision-making talents to the test.

According to statistics, pilots who lack the training and skills required for a safe flight over steep terrain frequently find themselves in situations beyond their control.

The term “offshore operations” refers to scenarios in which not just a portion of the flight takes place over huge bodies of water, but the majority of the flight, including the primary objectives, takes place away from dry land. The usage of helicopters in offshore operations has expanded dramatically in recent years, according to industry demand. Because of their hovering and VTOL capability.

Recreational/Hobby Flying

Humans always wished to fly and here we’re offering various options with our courses.

You may opt for Ab Inito, Advanced Pilot Programmes or Recreational flying courses.



Gliding is a recreational and competitive air sport in which pilots fly unpowered aircraft known as gliders or sailplanes that rely on rising air currents in the sky to stay aloft. The sport is sometimes referred to as soaring. Gliding became popular as a sport in the 1920s. Experienced pilots may now fly hundreds of kilometres before returning to their home airfields when conditions are favourable; occasionally, flights of over 1,000 kilometres (621 miles) are achieved.

Para Gliding


Paragliding is a sport in which people fly parachutes that have been modified to improve their gliding skills. The pilot is seated in a harness and controls the wing with lines linked to the paraglider’s trailing edge. These lines can be used separately to spin the paraglider or all at once to control pitch and speed. The takeoff and landing are generally done on foot and take place on a hill or mountain.

Microlight Flying


Microlight flying is a sport in which you fly a small plane with fixed wings, generally a one or two-seater. Hand-gliders were utilised in older microlights, which made them loud and sluggish. Microlight flights may now cover far greater distances at speeds of up to 100 mph. It can transport a maximum of two people and weighs little more than 450 kilos. Microlight flights may reach altitudes of up to 9000 metres and travel at speeds of up to 290 kilometres per hour.

Para Diving


Para diving also popularly known as sky diving is an activity involving jumping from an aircraft and safely descending to the earth with the assistance of a parachute. Every year, millions of people across the world experience the excitement of skydiving. Skydiving is not only a leisure sport; it is also a requirement for certain professional jobs. Airborne soldiers from the military, firefighters, and medical workers are among them.

Aero Modelling


Aeromodelling is a wonderful hobby that is enjoyed by individuals of all ages and professions all around the world. Many pilots and aeronautical engineers have started their careers here. “It’s a pastime in which a cadet learns to create a replica of a real aeroplane that can’t transport people and is used for sports.” Aero modelling allows students to get a better knowledge of the roles that each of these technical skills plays in the real-world aviation industry, as well as to build innovative thinking and execution abilities.
