Welcome to beautiful Miami, Florida. The weather here is excellent for flying about 90% of the year. Dean International has been in business since 1991, and was incorporated in April of 1994. Since then, it has trained over 7000 pilots worldwide. Dean International has trained over 600 candidates from India since 2006. Many of these are currently flying for Air India, GO Air, Indigo, Jet, Jet Lite, Kingfisher, and B-Jets.
Dean International offers training for candidates who wish to fly for one of India's airlines. Our Professional Indian Airline Program meets all minimum DGCA requirements and hours. Successful completion of this program will also earn you all of the necessary FAA ratings. In combination, these two accomplishments will allow you to convert your licenses and ratings once you return to India.
Dean International is an FAA-approved 141 flight school, which allows for Professional Career Training. Only schools which are FAA-approved and have approved training syllabi are able to issue visas for foreign students. This also means that our students receive training which surpasses FAA standards. The quality of student performance is measured through progressive flight exams and written exams. All training is documented and maintained to FAA standards.
Pricing includes all flight exams, written exams, books, and other study materials. Uniforms may be purchased in India, and must consist of five (5) blue pants and five (5) white pilot shirts. Our academy offers low, competitive pricing on single-engine and multi-engine airplane programs running from Private to Multi Commercial ratings. (Even with other costs included, our training is generally more affordable than training at another school.) Beware of academies with high prices. These prices are usually attributed to new aircraft and high overheads. These schools often end up bankrupt, and you may run the risk of losing your invested time and money. Dean International has ended up helping to train and certify students from these schools, including Air India cadets.
Our Professional Indian Airline Program can generally be completed within eight (8) months for dedicated candidates. However, some exceptional candidates have been able to complete the program in as little as four (4) months. Pricing for the program is based on the average student, and may be higher if additional flight or ground instruction is necessary. Again, this depends on the student's ability and dedication.
