He should have 120 hours of training where he will train with the instructor, do solo flight lessons and attempt for night flying training and cross country flying trainings. The oral, written and the practical exams are important aspects of commercial pilot training.

A trainee aspiring to be a commercial pilot should be allowed to sit for CPL exams if he has completed a minimum training of 25 hours which includes 5 hours simulator training. Moreover, the trainee pilot needs to complete at least 350 hours of ground training. It is imperative for the student to attend ground training classes with any DGCA approved institute. The good thing about joining commercial pilot training is that even the students from commerce or arts stream can join as CPL trainees. DGCA regulations require them to sit for a Math and Physics exam separately.

Attaining the class II medical is your first step to being medically fit to be a pilot. In fact, it is mandatory to attain the class II medical. In India if you aim to get a DGCA CPL, you must clear the medical exam for class I. To apply for this you will need a DGCA File Number that you will get from the DGCA only after you have cleared the class II medical exam. As your class II medical certificate contains the DGCA file number, you cannot miss the class II medical exam and opt for the class I medical exam directly.

Finding a DGCA approved institute is mandatory as this is the only path to class II medical and for this you will also need a class II medical doctor approved by DGCA.
