What type of Learning Environemnt will the students be in?

We have tried our best efforts to make and maintain high standard learning environment. Our Classroom is fully air conditioned to make learning in comfortable and relaxed conditions.
Our philosophy and intention are to limit the number of students in each intake to a manageable level of 30 students. This way, we can give each student more individual attention resulting in improved overall performance by the students. We have no more than 30 students in any phase of training at any one time.

What is the teaching Methodolgy?

The courses are a carefully structured mix of classroom sessions, computer based training and audio-visual presentations on TV Screen. Theoretical aspects guided by the faculty, help the student test the concepts that have been explained in class before assimilating them.

The courses are made simpler by using Air Route Maps, Aeronautical charts for Instruments Approach, Landing Aerodrome Obstruction and World Aeronautical Charts (WAC) for air navigation. Moreover, the courses are on up-to-date aviation information as per the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Annexes and documents, Aeronautical Information Publications (AIP) India, AERADIO, NOTAMS and updated Jeppesen Manual especially for the Indian flying environment. The Club is one of the rare institutions who boasts of having highly qualified, rated and experienced war veterans.

Personalized instructions are provided to each and every student. The students progress is continuously assessed through a series of internal tests and assignments. These are given significant weight in award of Final Certificate of Achievement from the Club
