EARN & LEARN PROGRAM

FOR PILOTS | CPL HOLDERS

Today there are over 4000 CPL license holders in India who are in a holding pattern for want of a job. This line is growing every day.

The Indian job market for inexperienced pilots with low time is non-existent. Severe structural and government policy changes have to be made to turn this sector around.

To help alleviate some of the issues being faced by the pilots and also make use of the period of uncertainty in the marketplace we have developed the ‘Earn & Learn’ program.

Students are registered full time for the 2 year Associate Science degree in Flight Operations and Management where in the first year the student will complete his / her CFI license while in the  second year the student will be given a work internship with World Wide Wings.

Enrollment is limited and to maintain the quality and integrity of the program we will only consider candidates who are totally committed to succeed.
