Multi Engine Aircraft





Multi-Engine Aircraft

As Aircraft design evolved, the search for more power, longer Flight and better Aircraft performance led to Multi-Engine Aircrafts format. If one engine was good, two or more must be better. It was that enthusiasm for performance and power that ultimately allowed Simple machines such as the Wright Flier to evolve into the airliners that begin stitching the world together. Rapidly progressing Aircraft Technology walked hand-in-hand with Light weight Aircraft Engine Technology making possible Aircraft that were increasingly fast and more powerful. The Technological frontier was to find new ways to utilize the Airplane. Then the goal became more people, more Cargo, and greater distances.
Major manufacturers of Turboprops are  Cessna, Piper, Hawker Beechcraft, Vulcanair  Examples: King Air C90, King Air B200, Piaggio P-180, Dornier 228 etc

Turboprops



Most of the Turboprops are so popular small Aircrafts as they can even Land on unpaved runways and are very economical in use. These Aircrafts are  Ideal for short to medium distance Flights, greater fuel efficiency and less expensive than other Jet Aircrafts.
Turboprops provide varied range in Aircrafts having capacity from 4 Seater up to 60 Pax. Turboprops fall in 2 categories – Executive Turboprop and Commuter Turboprops. These are most preferred because of their flexibility and ability to Fly out of small Airports and  having Runways not suitable for larger jets. Major manufacturers of Turboprops are  Cessna, Piper, Hawker Beechcraft, Vulcanair  Examples: King Air C90, King Air B200, Piaggio P-180, Dornier 228 etc

Single Engine Aircrafts




Many Airplane Manufactures are making private Air planes for the use of  corporate Piston Engines  and Trainer Aircraft are Single Engine Planes. These Airplane manufactures typically build these types of Aircraft with lightweight material and an engine that is powerful enough to withstand the weight and drag of the Airplane. Airplane manufacturers who specialize in Single Engine Airplanes include Cessna, Piper, Dimond, VisionAire, Socata and Grob. There are more than 100 manufactures world wide who typically build these types of Aircrafts.

International Aviation Organizations


ICAO
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It codifies the principles and techniques of international air navigation and fosters the planning and development of international air transport to ensure safe and orderly growth. Its headquarters are located in the Quartier International of Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The ICAO Council adopts standards and recommended practices concerning air navigation, its infrastructure, flight inspection, prevention of unlawful interference, and facilitation of border-crossing procedures for international civil aviation. In addition, the ICAO defines the protocols for air accident investigation followed by transport safety authorities in countries signatory to the Convention on International Civil Aviation, commonly known as the Chicago Convention.
As of November 2011, there were 191 ICAO members, consisting of 190 of the 193 UN members.
The ICAO defines an International Standard Atmosphere (also known as ICAO Standard Atmosphere), a model of the standard variation of pressure, temperature, density, and viscosity with altitude in the Earth's atmosphere.It also standardizes certain functions for use in the airline industry, such as the Aeronautical Message Handling System (AMHS), making it a standards organization.

FAA
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is the national aviation authority of the United States of America. An agency of the United States Department of Transportation, it has authority to regulate and oversee all aspects of civil aviation in the U.S. The Federal Aviation Act of 1958 created the organization under the name "Federal Aviation Agency", and adopted its current name in 1966 when it became a part of the United States Department of Transportation.
The FAA's roles include:
Regulating U.S. commercial space transportation.
Regulating air navigation facilities' geometry and flight inspection standards.
Encouraging and developing civil aeronautics, including new aviation technology.
Issuing, suspending, or revoking pilot certificates.
Regulating civil aviation to promote safety, especially through local offices called Flight Standards District Offices.
Developing and operating a system of air traffic control and navigation for both civil and military aircraft.
Researching and developing the National Airspace System and civil aeronautics.
Developing and carrying out programs to control aircraft noise and other environmental effects of civil aviation.
The FAA is divided into four "lines of business" (LOB).Each LOB has a specific role within the FAA.
Airports (ARP):-Plans and develops projects involving airports, overseeing their construction and operations. Ensures compliance with federal regulations.
Air Traffic Organization (ATO):-Primary duty is to safely and efficiently move air traffic within the National Airspace System. ATO employees manage air traffic facilities including Airport Traffic Control Towers (ATCT) and Terminal Radar Approach Control Facilities (TRACONs).
Aviation Safety (AVS):-Responsible for aeronautical certification of personnel and aircraft, including pilots, airlines, and mechanics.
Commercial Space Transportation (AST):-Ensures protection of U.S. assets during the launch or reentry of commercial space vehicles.

JAA
The Joint Aviation Authorities(JAA), was an associated body of the ECAC representing the civil aviation regulatory authorities of a number of European States who had agreed to co-operate in developing and implementing common safety regulatory standards and procedures. It was not a regulatory body, regulation being achieved through the member authorities.
In implementing the so-called FUJA Report, the JAA had entered into a new phase as of 1 January 2007. In this new phase the former "JAA" had become "JAA T" (Transition). JAA T consisted of a Liaison Office (JAA LO) and a Training Office (JAA TO). The offices of JAA LO were located in the premises of European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in Cologne, Germany.
The JAA started as the Joint Airworthiness Authorities in 1970. Originally, its objectives were only to produce common certification codes for large aeroplanes and for engines in order to meet the needs of European industry and international consortia (e.g., Airbus). After 1987 its work was extended to operations, maintenance, licensing and certification/design standards for all classes of aircraft.

EASA
The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) is a European Union (EU) agency with regulatory and executive tasks in the field of civilian aviation safety. Based in Cologne, Germany, the EASA was created on 15 July 2002,and it reached full functionality in 2008, taking over functions of the Joint Aviation Authorities (JAA). European Free Trade Association (EFTA) countries have been granted participation in the agency.
The responsibilities of EASA include to conduct analysis and research of safety, authorising foreign operators, giving advice for the drafting of EU legislation, implementing and monitoring safety rules (including inspections in the member states), giving type-certification of aircraft and components as well as the approval of organisations involved in the design, manufacture and maintenance of aeronautical products.
The member states are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, The Netherlands and The United Kingdom.

ECAC
The European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) or Conférence Européenne de l'Aviation Civile (CEAC) is an intergovernmental organization which was established by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) and the Council of Europe. It is located in Neuilly-sur-Seine/Paris in France. Founded in 1955 with 19 Member States at the time, ECAC counts today 44 members, including all 27 EU, 30 of the 31 European Aviation Safety Agency and all 39 EUROCONTROL Member States.
ECACp romotes the continued development of a safe, efficient and sustainable European air transport system. .
Its strategic priorities are safety, security and the environment.
ECAC Member States are: Albania, Armenia, Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Moldova, Monaco, Montenegro, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the Republic of Macedonia, Turkey, Ukraine and United Kingdom.

DGCA
The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is the Indian governmental regulatory body for civil aviation under the Ministry of Civil Aviation. This directorate investigates aviation accidents and incidents. It is headquartered along Sri Aurobindo Marg, opposite Safdarjung Airport, in New Delhi. The Government of India is planning to replace the organisation with a Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), modelled on the lines of the American Federal Aviation Administration
DGCA has fourteen Regional Airworthiness Offices (RAO) at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Hyderabad, Cochin, Bhopal, Lucknow, Patna, Bhubaneshwar, Kanpur, Guwahati and Patiala. It has also five Regional Air Safety offices located at Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Hyderabad. It has a Regional Research and Development Office located at Bangalore and a Gliding Centre at Pune.

CAA
The CAA has been envisaged as an autonomous regulatory body which will replace the DGCA and will meet standards set by the UN's International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The CAA will have separate departments to deal with safety, economic regulation and grievance resolution, as well as a full-fledged environment department. It will also have an independent accident investigation bureau. The Authority will also have the autonomy to recruit staff.
Currently, the DGCA is understaffed and does not have any recruitment powers. The CAA will have administrative and financial powers similar to those of the American FAA. These powers will redefine the regulator's role and better equip it to face the challenges of the growing Aviation sector in the country. Employees working with DGCA will be transferred to the CAA.
The CAA would be self-financing and have a separate fund called the 'Civil Aviation Authority of India Fund' that would finance its entire expenses. It would have a Chairperson, a Director General and 7-9 members appointed by the Central Government. These members will be qualified in the fields of aviation safety, aircraft engineering, flight standard operations, aerodromes, air navigation systems and air space management.

ATAC
ATAC is committed to providing its clients world-class modeling, simulation, and analysis for aviation. With over 30 years of experience in modeling some of the most complex airports, airspace, and aircraft noise challenges, and a product portfolio recognized worldwide for its ability to accurately simulate current and future aviation systems, we invite you to discover how ATAC can help answer your most complex aviation questions.

Education loans and Scholarships for Pilot Training in India :

Here's some information on Education loans and Scholarships 
for Pilot Training in India :


If you would like to be a pilot in the Indian Air Force, you can do so by taking the NDA entrance exam after Class XII (Phys & Math). In this case your training is free and you will be paid a decent stipend throughout your three years of training at the National Defence Academy, followed by specialised training at the Air Force Academy. After this, you will be commissioned as a Flying Officer and posted as a pilot at an Air Force Station.

Education loans

Traditionally, flying schools admitted students from affluent families. However, the trend is changing now. Flying schools as well as airlines have reported an increase in the number of students from middle-class families. For instance, around 50 per cent of pilots from SpiceJet's new batch are from middle-class families.

Education loans have enabled the dreams of aspiring pilots from middle-class families to take wings.

~ Flying school-airlines tie-ups

Various flying schools have tied up with banks as the cost of pilot training is exorbitant and many interested candidates are from middle-income families. These flying schools also have a tie-up with airlines to provide them with students.

United Aviation, a pilot training school, has tied up with SpiceJet wherein it provides pilots to the airline. 
American School of Aviation has an official tie-up with Kingfisher Airlines.
Aerostar Aviation, a Delhi-based flying school has tied up with Flight Safety Academy of USA to help bridge India's pilot shortage.

~ Bank loans

Pilot training now features in the top three categories of education loans, along with MBA and hotel management.

Around 45 per cent of the educational loans furnished by Centurion Bank of Punjab in a month are for pilot training.
Many other nationalised banks grant educational loans to pursue commercial pilot training courses, the details of which can be obtained directly from such banks.
