Airbus 320 Type Rating (DGCA)

The course is aimed at pilots who want to get type-rated for the Airbus 320 Family and become pilots in India. It is conducted according to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), which is a statutory body of the Government of India to regulate aviation in this country.

WHY CHOOSEAirbus A320 Type Rating (DGCA)

Type Rating certification is an essential credential a pilot should acquire if they want a career as an airline pilot. Investing in the A320 Type Rating proves advantageous for the following reasons.

Leader in the market

As of August 2022, a total of 16,622 A320s had been ordered and 10,474 delivered, of which 9,824 aircraft were in service with more than 340 operators.

Fly-by-wire aircraft

The A320 Family’s cockpit shares commonalities with the other Airbus aircraft. A single Type Rating enables pilots to fly A319, A320 and A321 thanks to their identical cockpits and operating procedures. They can also easily step up to Airbus’ widebody fly-by-wire aircraft with Cross Crew Qualification – opening opportunities for versatility in their flying assignments and giving airlines greater flexibility in deploying the flight crews.
