Sasovo flying college ties up with Era Recruitants

Written by: Staff

Chennai, July 7 (UNI) Mumbai-based Era Recruitants Pvt Ltd has signed a contract with Sasovo Flying College of Civil Aviation, a leading name in training commercial pilots in Russia.

Giving details of the company's contract with Sasovo, to help Indian students to get Commercial Pilot Licence (CPL), Era Recruitants' Director Raja Roy Choudhury said this would be a boon to Indian students, who were willing to pursue an international career in flying.

Mr Choudhury said, ''A student passing out of Sasovo Flying college can start flying as a commercial pilot in the airspace of Europe, Australia and the US.'' A student pilot, wishing to fly in Indian airspace after acquiring the licence from Sasovo, would, however, need to undergo a conversion test conducted by the Director-General of Civil Aviation, he said.

He said the programme for CPL, was subdised by the Russian government and the total programme was covered in 14 months time at an all inclusive cost of Rs 13 lakh.

''The students passing out of Sasovo, would get themselves recognised in the Commercial pilot category, as also the Air Trade Pilot Licence category, which is unique to this course,'' he said.

Mr Choudhury, who was here to meet interested students, said the response in the city was good and the company has shortlisted ten students. ''We target 100 students this year for CPL programme,'' he said.

The Immigration-cum-Education Overseas Consulting company has also entered into a strategic partnership with PORU-S Ltd, Russian Education Consultant company for offering Indian students, undergraduate, post-graduate and doctorate programmes in various spheres, including medicine, in leading unversities in Russia.
