Why Becoming a Pilot could be the best career choice for you.

Why Becoming a Pilot could be the best career choice for you.

An excellent career with lots of job opportunities awaits you.

Being a pilot has always been a prestigious and enigmatic career option. Add to that, the option and possibility of pursuing aviation law, recreating cases physically, arguing them in the court of law, and being able to provide relief to the sufferings of many – it is a stellar combination!

 

A pilot’s career, especially one who has studied and trained overseas, has many benefits:

 

  1. A burgeoning demand for pilots in India and abroad – so the choice of returning to your homeland, or exploring more options in other countries, is always open. According to industry estimates, the demand for pilots globally is going to grow at a rapid pace of 8,00,000 new pilots over the next 20 years, and 17,000 additional pilots in India itself in the next 10 years!
  2. Various traveling destinations – while at work, or on a holiday with applicable travel discounts.
  3. Always working in a ‘room with a view’ – never underestimate this privilege!
  4. Meeting people from various cultural backgrounds – while training and once at work.

If you feel you have the spirit to live a life of adventure and hard work, then the ‘Aviation Law & Professional Pilot License’ degree, at Lazarski University, Poland, is for you! The degree is a 3-year program, wherein the curriculum has been adapted to the contemporary demands of the market.

 

  1. Both theoretical and practical knowledge is imparted, to obtain the Airline Transport Pilot License (A). The program includes all modules, including VFR, IR(A), MPE, CPL, etc.  
  2. Starting as early as the first year of studies, students are given the opportunity to attend an internship held at a professional pilot training center – Goldwings Flight Academy. The aircrafts used depend on the training, varying from the Cessna 152,172, to Piper and Diamond.  
  3. After obtaining the ATPL (A) license, and accomplishing 200 hours of flying time as an airline pilot, students are eligible to apply for a CPL exam to obtain a license. The CPL license allows you to apply for the position of second pilot in all airlines worldwide.
  4. The knowledge focus on the legal aspect of civil aviation in the EU and the world, will allow students to practice the profession well, and prepare them for work in civil aviation authorities and institutions.
  5. During your training, it is possible that you feel being a pilot is not exactly your calling, or you could have a health setback, which makes you rethink this career decision. Surprisingly, this particular degree allows you to be fully prepared for such a situation too. The excellent theoretical knowledge of aviation law that is acquired during the degree, will prepare you for work with civil aviation authorities and institutions too. Aviation control procedures, general aircraft know-how, meteorology, planning, flight execution, monitoring, navigation, operating procedures, communications, and flight rules – are all a part of the curriculum, presenting diverse opportunities for you in the future.
  6. Post completion of the program, our dedicated placement team guarantees job placements for all students. It is predicted that jobs for pilots and aviation lawyers are going to explode soon. In fact, Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg, has already expressed his concern over the growing shortage of pilots.
  7. Studying aviation and flying training in India is not only very expensive in comparison to other countries, but the number of available seats are also very few. Therefore, successful completion of your degree with Lazarski, Poland, along with the required numbers of flying hours, is the best possible option.

With so many interesting prospects after graduation from Lazarski University, let us not forget all that Poland is great for!

Poland has over 400 public and private higher education institutions to offer. Conducted in the English language, the programmes are of extremely high quality, while study costs, and the cost of living, is substantially lower than most other European countries.

 

Poland has fast become the destination of choice for a wide variety of programs. Popular degrees include medicine, engineering, architecture and physics.

 

Since Poland is one of the 26 European countries covered under the SCHENGEN visa, students studying in the country are free to visit the 25 other countries. Since 2004, Polish diplomas have also become recognised better internationally. To add to it, Poland is a member of the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Now IELTS from home!

Now IELTS from home!

Utilise the lockdown to prepare and take your IELTS.

IELTS, or the International English Language Testing System, is the world’s most popular English language proficiency test, for higher education and global migration. It is recognised by over 10,000 institutions and 10,000 organisations globally, and continues to set the standard for English language testing, in countries where English is the main language of communication. In fact, most governments across the world, use the IELTS to process immigration applications too.

 

Now that we have understood what the IELTS is and why it is important, let us get clarity on what it will cover. It is a task-based test covering the four language skills: listening, reading, writing and speaking. There are two types of IELTS: Academic and General Training. While Listening and Speaking matter are the same for both tests, there is a difference in the Reading and Writing sections.

 

In the current scenario of the Covid pandemic, and the country being in lockdown mode, there is good news for all students aspiring to study abroad. You can prepare from home by taking online classes, and get ready to take the IELTS Computer Based Examination! This will not only help you continue with your study abroad plans, it also allows you to utilise this time productively.

 

Taking online classes has many benefits, more so in a scenario where physical classes are not a possibility.

 

  1. They give you ample time and flexibility with your schedule. It is easier to work your other activities around online classes, since they do not require any travel time and minimal preparation.
  2. Neither do you incur any travel cost.
  3. Teachers are aware that online studying could be new to a lot of their students. As a result, they are happy to be more cooperative than usual, regarding any clarifications students need.
  4. A by-product of online classes, which will also work in your favour, is self-motivation. Since you will not physically be with your peers, but will instead be spending a lot of time by yourself, your course will help you become more self-motivated. This is a trait that will make you stand out in the workplace and even look good in your resume!

 

The advantages don’t stop here, but continue with taking computer-based exam. Computer based examination not only help save on time and resources, but also guarantee an exam slot at a time when paper exams could become difficult to take. In India majority of students prefer to take paper-based examination rather than computer base examination. Keep in mind, seats for the paper exam are rather limited and once the lockdown is over, centres are expecting a crowd of students to take the paper exam. So, there will be lots of students who might not get the opportunity to take the exam. Also, post lock down all centres are expected to run with limited capacity in post lockdown scenario. That will in turn, affect admission applications and your precious time could get wasted. On the other hand, a computer-based exam can be programmed for more applicants due to availability of more slots, as desired. Results of an IELTS computer based exam are available much sooner – in 5-7 days, vis-à-vis the 13-15 days it takes for paper exam IELTS results.

 

While the Listening, Reading and Writing tests will take place online in a rehearsed format, the Speaking test will remain face-to-face with an examiner – the most effective way of assessing. The tests are available up to 7 days a week, and 3 times daily. (In contrast, the paper-based exam is available up to 48 days per year, and only on Thursdays, and Saturdays).

Another general observation is that students tend to score a marginally better score in the Computer based test, in comparison to the paper exam. And in an exam that is important enough to shape your life, that marginally better score could just be your winning ticket!

 

In short, there is no reason to put a brake on your dreams of studying abroad! In fact, don’t let the lockdown interfere with your preparations. Instead, utilise this time to prepare. RG International is hosting live classes every day. You can choose between four slots, for the 60-90 minute lectures. There are expert mentors who are happy to engage in weekly doubt-solving sessions with their students too.
