Sunrise Flight Academy India courses and training aircraft both meet the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) requirements. All India pilot training courses include the DGCA required 250 total hours, with over 200 in-aircraft hours. Multi-engine training utilizes the Piper Seneca PA34 aircraft, which is also DGCA approved. (NOTE: Not all flight training academies are able to offer DGCA approved aircraft as Sunrise does).
It is essential to note that Sunrise Flight Academy does not use “shared time” or “safety pilot” time, as some other schools do, to satisfy pilot-in-command (PIC) time. Shared time may reduce costs, it is NOT recognized as PIC time in India, as well as many other countries. And importantly, since shared time also reduces “hands-on” flight time, it diminishes the student pilot’s flight skills.
When applying to Sunrise Aviation please note that there are NO representatives of the flight school authorized to accept payments for applications with the exception of Shilpi Gupta as listed below. Please contact her or the school immediately if requested otherwise.
