Aviation Meteorology

Aviation Meteorology aims to contribute to the guarantee of safety standards, economy and efficiency of flights. Aviation meteorology deals with the impact of weather on air traffic management. An important subject for air crews to understand the implications of weather on their aircraft.

  • An Interpretation and application of aeronautical weather bulletins,
  • Charts and forecasts, and uses and procedures for collecting weather information, before and during flight; measure altitude.
  • Aeronautical Meteorology;
  • The climate of the relevant areas for factors affecting aviation;
  • The movement of barometric systems,
  • The structure of the front, and the origin & characteristics of important weather phenomena affecting the conditions of take-off,
  • Flight path and landing;
  • Avoid hazardous weather conditions and more

Air Navigation

The principles of Air Navigation are identical to general navigation, which contain the process of planning, recording, and controlling the movement of an aircraft from one place to another.

  • Using aeronautical charts, navigational aids and tools;
  • Understanding the principles and characteristics of appropriate navigation systems;
  • Operate aerial equipment;
  • Understand the reality of air navigation and death calculation.
  • Practical air navigation using radio navigation aids.
  • Use, accuracy and reliability of navigation systems used in the departure,
  • Approach and landing phases of a flight path;
  • Identification of radio navigation aids and more.

Air Regulations

Air Regulations is a topic related to rules and regulations of Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).

  • Aircraft Act, 1934
  • Aircraft Rules, 1937
  • Rules of the air
  • Appropriate air traffic services practices, procedures, and more.

Technical General (Aircraft & Engines)

It includes studies of Aerodynamics, Aircraft Systems, Jet Engines, Piston Engines, Propeller, etc. It is a important and topic related to pilot training.

  • Theory of Flight
  • Airframe and Systems
  • Electrical Systems
  • Power Plant
  • Emergency Equipment
  • Subsonic Aerodynamics
  • Transonic Aerodynamics
  • Stability and more

Technical Specific

To obtain an endorsement for a specific type of aircraft in India, a pilot must meet the requirements set by the DGCA, which typically includes passing a written exam specific to the type of aircraft, as well as demonstrating practical proficiency in flying the aircraft. This endorsement is then added to the pilot's license as a type rating, indicating that they are qualified to operate that particular type of aircraft.

  • Cessna 152
  • Cessna 172
  • Diamond DA42
  • P68C
  • Piper Seneca PA34 
  • Piper Arrow
  • Tecnam P2006, 
  • and few more

Radio Telephony Restricted (Aeronautical) 

RTR-A is a license required by pilots to operate radiotelephony equipment on board an aircraft. This license allows pilots to communicate with Air Traffic Control (ATC) and other aircraft in order to ensure safe and efficient air traffic management.

  • Part I – Transmission
  • Part II – Theory
  • RTR (A) Exam is conducted by Dept of Telecommunication WPC every 2 months.
