Converting to an India Commercial

Asked by: 1779 views Commercial Pilot

I have a potential student that inquired how to convert a US FAA Commercial or ATP to one good for India. He plans to move back there and wants to fly for the airlines. I looked at the DGCA website for India and there's an odd requirement for 10th and 12th math and physics. What if the person doesn't have that? I find it strange that not having that would prohibit one from flying for the airlines. Is there a way to satisy that or another way to get the ATP for India?

    This is a question for the Indian authorities. Maybe you can find someone in the FAA who may know and can help you. I expect there is an equivalency that may be satisfied; US school standards/credits aren’t the same as these you quote, but I’m sure there is a comparable standard.
