    Capt.Ramprasadh Buddha:

    Dear cadet,
    We have high quality of taring we have two different types of cadet pilot training programs.
    1)SPL, PPL, CPL COST 15 LAC.
    1) SPL, PPL, CPL, MULTI, IR COST 20 LAC.
    2)SPL, CPL, And hour building program its cost 25 LAC.
    2)ON JOB TRAINING PROGRAM ITS ITS COST 30 LCS.
    You can choose one of this.

    There are lot of schools that are providing you the right training and then there are schools they are providing you the right accommodation and some with both so it becomes very hard where to go in that case contact to get the exact information and the best guidance for flying and for ground studies.
    this is your one stop solution to all your needs from taring , ground studies , medicals , books and each and every thing and that to in the most easiest of ways,
