WHY CHOOSE
A320 Type Rating
(DGCA)?

A Type Rating certification is an essential credential a pilot should acquire if they want a career as an airline pilot. Investing in the A320 Type Rating proves advantageous for the following reasons.

Leader in the market

As of August 2022, a total of 16,622 A320s had been ordered and 10,474 delivered, of which 9,824 aircraft were in service with more than 340 operators.

Fly-by-wire aircraft

The A320 Family’s cockpit shares commonalities with the other Airbus aircraft. A single Type Rating enables pilots to fly A319, A320 and A321 thanks to their identical cockpits and operating procedures. They can also easily step up to Airbus’ widebody fly-by-wire aircraft with Cross Crew Qualification – opening opportunities for versatility in their flying assignments and giving airlines greater flexibility in deploying the flight crews.

BAA training has experience preparing Indian pilots

BAA Training has a great deal of experience working with Indian pilots. More than 150 students from India hold Type Rating certificates issued by BAA Training and the majority of them are already successfully flying pilots.

India is key aviation market
