Program Objectives

Welcome to Exampay, your trusted resource for comprehensive aviation test preparation for your CPL ground exam. Whether you're pursuing a career in aviation or looking to advance your existing knowledge, our test series is designed to help you reach new heights. Aviation is a field where precision, expertise, and continuous learning are essential, and our test series is tailored to empower you with the knowledge and skills you need to excel.

The Stages of Pilot Training:

The voyage to becoming a pilot typically encompasses several key stages:

Ground School: Here, you will delve into the theory of flight, aerodynamics, navigation,
meteorology, and other essential subjects that form the foundation of aviation.
Flight Simulation: Get hands-on experience in realistic simulators, preparing you for various
in-flight scenarios and honing your skills.

Solo Flight: Achieve the milestone of flying solo under the guidance of a certified instructor,
instilling confidence and independence.
Flight Time: Accumulate flight hours, both solo and with an instructor, to refine your abilities
and amass valuable experience.

Licensing Exams: After completing the required flight hours, you'll face written and practical
exams to earn your pilot's licence.

The duration of pilot training varies based on the type of licence you pursue, typically taking
several months to a year or more. The journey is rigorous, but for those with an unshakable
passion for flight, it's a journey worth embarking upon.

Licences on the Horizon:

Obtaining a pilot's licence is not the end but the beginning of a lifelong learning journey. The
requirements for each licence may differ by country, but the progression generally follows
these stages:

Student Pilot License (SPL): Your first step, allowing you to fly solo under instructor
supervision, typically requiring a minimum age of 16, educational qualifications, fitness
clearance, and a financial guarantee.

Private Pilot License (PPL): Grants the privilege of private flying. Applicants are usually
required to be at least 17 years old, hold a 10+2 qualification, and clear a medical fitness

Commercial Pilot License (CPL): This licence opens doors to commercial flying but not as
a captain. Typically, applicants must be between 18 to 30 years old, have studied Physics
and Math in high school, and possess three years of PPL experience.

Airline Transport Pilot License (ATPL): The pinnacle, allowing you to assume the role of
captain on commercial aircraft with ultimate responsibility for safety.

The Flight Training Clock:

The hours mentioned serve as a guideline, with flexibility to accommodate individual learning
curves. The journey commences with the Student Pilot License, which involves minimal
actual flying time. The clock truly starts ticking towards the Private Pilot License.

A set regimen of 60 hours, with a significant solo component and dual flying time, must be
adhered to. Going beyond 60 hours is not uncommon, with an average fee of INR 1000 per
hour. Meeting the eligibility criteria for the Commercial Pilot License is a formidable
Achieving CPL requires accumulating 250 hours of flying time, including instrument and
night flying, along with three years of PPL experience. An official hiatus is often incorporated
to ensure the student accumulates these crucial hours.
For CPL, aspiring pilots can also opt for the AME CET national entrance examination, which
provides admission to esteemed institutes across India and offers 100% scholarships to
eligible students.
CPL training involves 80 hours of ground instruction and 200 hours of flying divided into
three phases: Ground Training, Simulator Training, and Flying Training, encompassing
diverse aspects of aviation.

A World of Opportunities:

Completion of the CPL course opens doors to a world of opportunities in the aviation
industry. You can explore career prospects with renowned airlines such as IndiGo, Air India,
SpiceJet, Go Air, Air Asia India, Vistara, Alliance Air, Luwang Air, Ventura Air Connect, and
many more.

Roles in top airlines:It includes CoPilot, First Officer, Captain, Airline Pilot, Commercial Pilot, and Commuter Pilot,
each with its unique challenges and rewards.

Charting the Cost of Dreams:The cost of pilot training varies considerably among institutions. For instance, Indira Gandhi
Rashtriya Uran Akademi charges approximately INR 50 Lakhs for the entire course, whereas
CAE-NFTI (National Flight Training Institute) charges INR 42 Lakhs plus applicable taxes.
Government Aviation Training Institute (GATI) similarly charges INR 50-60 Lakhs up to CPL.
Flying clubs, like Bombay Flying Club or Madhya Pradesh Flying Club, charge about INR
90,000 to INR 1.2 Lakhs per semester for pilot licences.

For those seeking international training, partnering with commercial airlines can cost
between INR 1-1.2 crores.
Please note that these fees cover training costs only and exclude expenses like housing,
transportation, books, and equipment.

The Sky is the Syllabus:In your pilot training journey, you will engage in both hands-on flying and classroom learning.
Subjects include air regulations, aviation meteorology, air navigation, aircraft engines,
seamanship, technical specifics, and radio telephony. These courses are structured into six

key categories:

Air Navigation: It encompasses a wide range of essential topics to delve into the
fundamental elements of navigation: starting from exploration of the solar system and its
seasonal variations, understanding the Earth's attributes- great circle and small circle
dynamics, magnetism, aircraft magnetism, questions on speed calculations, fuel
consumption, instrument operation, range estimation, navigation planning, radio
communication etc.

Air Regulations: This curriculum entails questions on national and international aviation
agreements and organisations, role of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO),
aerodromes, aeronautical information service, search and rescue operations, rules for flight
operations, aircraft certification standards, pilot licensing requirements, air traffic control
procedures, aviation safety protocols, and the legal framework governing aviation activities.

Aviation Meteorology: Questions navigate through the intricate components of Earth's
atmosphere, its composition, vertical divisions, and temperature dynamics, atmospheric
pressure and its variations, thermodynamics, humidity measurement, cloud formation, and
precipitation development, Climatology and its patterns etc.

Technical General: It encompasses a wide range of essential knowledge areas for aspiring
commercial pilots. From understanding aircraft systems and aerodynamics to mastering
aviation regulations and emergency procedures, this subject equips candidates with the
foundational understanding needed for safe and professional flight operations. It's a crucial
stepping stone on the path to achieving a Commercial Pilot License and ensuring that pilots
have the expertise to handle various technical aspects of aviation with confidence and

Technical Specific: questions on aircraft's systems, operation, limitations, performance
characteristics, emergency procedures, and handling peculiarities, cockpit controls, aircraft
documentation, weight and balance calculations, emergency systems, aircraft-specific
avionics, and specialised equipment.

Radio Telephony: It covers radio procedures, phraseology, and protocols for clear and
concise communication with air traffic control (ATC) and other aircraft. Pilots learn how to
transmit and receive information, provide position reports, request clearances, and handle
emergency situations through radio communication. This training ensures that pilots can
maintain safe and efficient communication in both routine and critical flight scenarios,
enhancing aviation safety and professionalism.

Our program offers a comprehensive set of questions and detailed explanations for each
section, ensuring you are fully prepared for CPL examinations. We leave no stone unturned,
ensuring your success in this exhilarating field of aviation.
