THE CORE COMPETENCIES OF A PROFESSIONAL PILOT

Updated: Sep 5, 2019


Since I became an instructor in 2009 I have had the pleasure of working with, and training (Pilot Training) hundreds of professional pilots from around the world. One of the most enticing elements of the aviation industry, is the opportunity it presents to work with people from different cultures and backgrounds Pilot Training Institutes in India.

In addition, I am privileged to be in a position where I constantly meet new people who are curious about the aviation industry and Dgca Exam.

In that context I frequently get inquiries from people who are looking to start their pilot education and want to learn more about what it takes to become a pilot. To answer these questions for all of our readers out there, I am putting together a series of nine blog posts, to highlight what is to be expected of a professional pilot today, both in training and furthermore in their careers thereafter. 

The foundation for this blog series will be the core competencies for professional pilots as defined by the Pilot Training Institutes in India .

As you can see from the overview, there is much more to be said about each core competency and what it entails. To make this series digestible in smaller pieces we will tackle one competency at a time. As the following blog posts are published I will add links below for easy navigation.


  1. Communication

  2. Aircraft Flight Path Management - Manual Control

  3. Aircraft Flight Path Management - Automation

  4. Leadership and teamwork

  5. Problem solving and decision making

  6. Application of procedures

  7. Workload management

  8. Situational Awareness


In layman terms, the definition means that the core competencies are the areas a professional pilot (Pilot Training) should master.(Dgca Exam) It is clearly defined how a pilot should behave and perform in order to be successful in his/her career and be able to contribute to continued high level of safety for air travelers and crew across the globe Pilot Training Institutes in India.

As we break this down over the next couple of weeks, I will define how we apply this in flight training in order to help student pilots develop in these areas.
