CPL is a type of license, not a degree or course.

B.Sc. Aviation with CPL is an undergraduate program that technically deals with the fundamentals of the aviation sector such as airport operations, air regulation, aviation weather, airport security and safety measures, dangerous goods, etc.

Aviation is a very technical field. Learning to fly modern aircraft is challenging and expensive. Depending on your skill and interests, it can be difficult: there is math involved, but not in the way, you studied in high school.

One can however fly a Boeing or an Airbus as a Co-Pilot with a CPL in India. Depending on the country of license issue, a typical ATPL requirement is 1500 hours of command time on the CPL OR 3000 hours of Co-Pilot time on a CPL. You also need to clear a few theory examinations with the aviation regulator.

Simply put, type rating is a certification issued by the country’s regulatory body (such as DGCA in India) that certifies that a pilot is fit to fly certain types of aircraft. The first step to becoming a pilot is undoubtedly training and obtaining a license followed by accumulating flying hours.

A formal degree BSc integrated with a CPL as compared to CPL (Commercial Pilot License) is beneficial in equipping a person in terms of aviation skills. It broadens one’s perspective in the field of specialization and management.

BSc in Aviation provides excellent career options for the students. Some of the most common job profiles include aircraft maintenance engineer, pilot, production & maintenance manager, software testing engineer, etc.

A class 2 medical is the preliminary medical license required by all aspiring pilots to get their CPL (Commercial Pilot’s License) issued. The class 2 medical license is mandated before anyone applies for a class 1 medical license.

It’s required for you to get an SPL (Student Pilot License) and to join a flying school. Step 2. For Class 2 Medical examination, test’s cost will be around Rs 3500/- for tests like Blood, Urine, BMI (body mass index), ECG, Blood pressure, chest X-ray, Eye test, and Hearing test.

At the Class 2 medical, one of our AMEs will review your medical history and will perform a medical examination to check that everything is functioning correctly. The examination will cover areas such as vision, hearing, lungs, heart, blood pressure, stomach, limbs and nervous system.

First-class medical certificate requirements include checks of eyesight, ears, psychical examination, electrocardiogram (ECG), lung function, cholesterol blood, hemoglobin blood, chest X-ray, urine, and period of validity

It will cost around 5000 Rs. It is valid for 1 year and within the completion of one year, you have to do the Class 1 medical from approved medical centers in India. If done from airforce hospitals, it will cost around 3000 Rs and if done from approved private hospitals it will cost around 6000 to 8000 Rs.
