Brief Checklist for flight training

Welcome to BORN2AVIATE’s checklist-to-the-sky

Are you an aspiring pilot who is new to the industry and does not know where to start? Well, you have hit the right place. This is a brief checklist consisting of all the steps to becoming an airline pilot. So fasten your seatbelt and let’s get started!


  1. 18 years of age 
  2. 12th standard pass-out with Physics, Mathematics and English. (don’t have that? drop us a message!)
  3. ICAO level 4 English (Candidate  should be able to speak and understand English).


Being medically fit is a necessity for becoming a pilot. Before you start your journey we suggest getting your DGCA medicals done. These medicals can ONLY be done by doctors who have been approved by the DGCA. There are two classes of medicals- Medical Class 1 & Medical Class 2. The list of the doctors or hospitals can be found online or you can message us for the same and we will be happy to provide you with it.

Apply for Computer Number

Once you are done with your medicals, it’s time to start with applying for your Computer Number. You can do so on – this can be a very frustrating and long process. Hence we at BORN2AVIATE provide assistance for filling out the application as well as mailing the documents, so don’t worry…just contact us!
