To be very forthright, there are not many options available in terms of scholarships specifically meant for commercial pilot courses though the IGRUA is known to offer some sort of financial assistance. It seems that this financial assistance is meant for certain categories. i.e. SC/ST. The most immediate solution lies in seeking some sort of financing wherein bank loans can be sought. Remember that aviation courses like commercial pilot training are classified as career training courses and thus, the interest is usually charged at much higher rates than other educational loans. Further, the costs involved can vary immensely depending upon whether you are pursuing the course from abroad or India. The tuition fee charged by most institutions for such courses is quite high with the average fee being charged in the range of Rs. 20 – 25 lakhs in India itself. Costs can go much higher in overseas destinations particularly in nations where boarding and lodging costs are conventionally high.
