Simaero starts TR according to DGCA India standards

Simaero, a prominent global aviation training provider, announces the launch of new exclusive programs specifically designed for Indian pilots seeking EASA A320, B737 NG, and ATR 72-600 Type Ratings, which meet Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) standards, in its Paris Training Center.


EASA-Compliant Type Rating Programs for Indian Pilots, Tailored to Meet DGCA Requirements.

Simaero has just opened Summer sessions for new EASA-approved Type Rating Programs on ATR 72-600, A320, and B737 NG aircraft types for individual Indian pilots. These new programs have been specifically adapted to meet the requirements of DGCA India and are the first of their kind to be offered by Simaero in the Paris Training Center.

Each one of the Type-Rating comprehensive training programs is designed to provide pilots with the knowledge and skills needed to operate the specific aircraft type, including both theoretical and practical training – base training excluded. Courses and timings have been optimized to give trainees their best chances at completing the program successfully, the type-rating certificate being mandatory for pilots seeking to fly the relevant aircraft type within an Indian airline.

“We are excited to launch these new Type Rating Programs, says Patrice Galinier, Simaero Group Training Director. Each syllabus of our EASA-approved programs has been adapted to meet DGCA standards per aircraft type. It has been a request from many individual Indian pilots for a long time, and we are glad to finally provide them with a solution to help them meet their career goals in Indian Aviation.”


Special Summer Deals to participate in these new High-Quality Training Programs.

To mark the launch of these new programs, Simaero is offering an attractive Summer Deal package for individual Indian pilots, which includes accommodation with meal options, making it easier for them to focus on their training during the approximately 35 to 40 days that the program lasts.

Throughout the entire time of their training, the pilots will also benefit from all the equipment of Paris Training Center, with dedicated classrooms for ground training and highly experienced instructors for practical training, guaranteeing the best possible training experience for trainees.
