    SECTION 7, SERIES B PART VI

    Issue II dated 1.9.99 Effective 1.1.2000

    Subject : Syllabus for Examination for Issue of Senior Commercial Pilot’s

    Licence (Aeroplanes) and Airline Transport Pilot’s Licence for

    Aeroplanes and Helicopters.

1. INTRODUCTION

    Sections L, M and N of Schedule II of the Aircraft Rules, 1937, stipulate, amongst

    other requirements, that the applicant shall pass a written and oral examination as

    per syllabus prescribed by the DGCA for the issuance of Senior Commercial Pilot’s

    Licence (SCPL) (Aeroplanes), Airline Transport Pilot’s licence (ALTP) for

    Aeroplanes and ALTP for Helicopters respectively. Accordingly, this part of the CAR

    lays down the main topics of syllabus for the written and oral examination for issue

    of these licences in accordance with the provisions of Schedule II. These topics of

    syllabus are in conformity with the knowledge requirements prescribed in ICAO

    Annex 1.

    This CAR is issued under the provisions of Schedule II and Rule 133A of the Aircraft

    Rules, 1937.
