American School of Aviation opens recruitment centre in Hyderabad

Hyderabad: The American School of Aviation (ASA), a US-based pilot training institute, opened a recruitment centre in Hyderabad on Tuesday, making it the eighth such centre for the ASA in the country.
ASA was planning to open 20 more recruitment centres in the country by the end of the year. The institute, which is in the fifth year of its existence, is now planning to add 50 more aircraft to its current fleet of 31 by June this year.
ASA has two training programmes — an eight-month Kingfisher Airlines Programme (KFA) and a special flying training programme with a 10-month duration period. Under the KFA programme, ASA India does the psychometric testing for aspiring pilots and sends them to Kingfisher Airlines for an interview. If selected, the candidate will get a substantial scholarship from KFA and also a provisional letter of appointment. The programme costs $46,138.
Under the special flying training programme, students who enroll in the course will be given pilot training at the ASA’s school in Atwater, California, supplemented by ground training at the ASA India’s Gurgaon facility. ASA will facilitate the entire process of becoming a commercial pilot from the time a student applies till he or she gets a job with an airline. This programme costs $37,998.
