Important information

We do know that a valid IR (Instrument Rating) is not a requirement by DGCA - but we do require you to have it.

In general you need to be aware that a Type Rating course is exactly that -> a course covering training for a new aircraft type. We expect that you know your IFR and also that your basic flying skills are good. We will teach you how to master the new aircraft type - but time is just too limited for you to spend precious time in the flight simulator learning basic aircraft handling andhow to fly IFR.

A type rating course is very demanding and should not be underestimated in any way. But with proper preparation and training it will be an unforgettable and a rewarding experience. We will help you getting there as much as we possibly can - but we insist that you put in some hard work to reach the goal. We welcome you on board with GAC.
