Why join Bombay Flying Club?

The fleet is composed of 11 aircraft and a fully operational simulator. Certainly, this gives an advantage of complete experience to the students without them having to wander to different locations to use facilities. Moreover, Bombay Flying Club established the BSC Aviation Degree from Mumbai University in its aim to provide a formal degree expanding the specialization and management of potential pilots.

The pilot school has always been in the front line providing quality pilots. For instance, the Father of Aviation in India, Mr. J.R.D. Tata, obtained his Pilot’s License from the institution. Also, Mrs. Rabia Futehally, the first woman pilot from India obtained her Private Pilot License from the institution. For this reason, Bombay Flying Club has earned its professionalism by having trained pilots who are now working as captains of international airlines. Undeniably, Bombay Flying Club is one of the reputable pilot institutions in India.

Furthermore, residential accommodations are well-maintained, conducive to students, and well-furnished.
