CAA is the place to be. I enjoyed the 11 months i spent here to the fullest. And a very big thankyou to Chimes for getting my cpl done in just 11 months. I'm sure this would not have been possible at any place other than CAA. And ill always be greatful to all instructors here, Devjeet sir, Harshit sir, Shankar sir, Nikhil sir, Aman sir and Sagar sir! Thank you for all those wonderful moments and wishing you best of luck.

Since July 2008, I have been associated with Chimes Aviation Academy (CAA), one of the premier flying institutes in India. I was looking for the best aircrafts, training methods, experience, individual attention, safety and attitude. You will not find any higher standards than at CAA. As a fresh pass out, I was looking out to fly one of those big irons, as everyone does, that is when CAA trained and employed me as a Flight Instructor which simplified the transition process from basic trainer to an advanced jet. I have been selected by Spicejet Airline and have completed my Type Rating Boeing 737 NG. The atmosphere of a real flight community, coupled with the resources to pursue the highest level of flight proficiency proves to be a winning combination. Thanks to all at CAA for making me proud about that one decision I made in 2008. FLY SAFE!!!
- Capt. Aman Phogat First Officer in Spice Jet
My flying career started with Chimes Aviation Academy (CAA) in 2008. Since my first flight, I was trained to become a professional pilot. From the ground school to the flight line, the instructors always went a step further to ensure quality training. The main reasons why I chose CAA were for its brand new aircrafts equipped with advance avionics, the facilities, and here at CAA solo flight means SOLO. Although it was a substantial investment, I would not have spent my money anywhere else. They care about your education and your career goals. I completed my AFI course at CAA after I got my CPL. I am very thankful to my training, preparation and campus placement in CAA which has helped me to become a first officer in Indigo Airlines. The environment and professionalism here are what prepared me for my first airline job, and I acknowledge the same every time I walk on the ramp to my airplane. I completely endorse CAA for flight training if you want a promising career in aviation. Happy Landings!!!!

Spent a wonderful year and a half at Chimes. Had the pleasure of flying under Capt BP. Singh and Capt. Tilloo. Not only they are one of the best instructors in India, but also a role model for any aspiring aviator. The ground school helped me clear all my PPL and CPL exams within the first two attempts.

Had a great time doing my recency here! Got done quicker than I anticipated (a week flat). A big thank you to everyone!!
- Kartik Kalaan Student
Respected Sir, Thank you for your cooperation during my IR check.Before coming to Nagpur i never thought i'll fly the a/c with instrument because as you know the standards of flying in India. I never thought earlier that you and Capt.Tillo take any pain to do the flying in 48*c temperature because i never seen this type of dedications of any instructors in India (as per my previous experience of flying with different instructors in different flying clubs in India). I never forgot this experience of my life. At Last, Thank you very much. Regards chirag Narula

It has been a good experience for me in Chimes aviation academy. When I joined CAA in July 2014, I knew it will be hard work for me to live up to the expectations. But, the support from the instructors helped me a lot. Special thanks to my instructors for working hard on my flying skills and making me a much better pilot. Thanku! :) proud to be a pilot trained by CAA.
- Laksh Chadha - Student Pilot
What can I say!! Pursuing my dream of flying has taken me to a lot of places,seen many things, met a lot of people, listened to a lot of opinions and suggestions, been here at Chimes for more than 6 months now and a happy story it has been so far. I have learned a lot of things about flying and beyond!!! By far the most surprising aspect is the kind of support I received from the CFI and my Instructor kept me from forgetting why I started this journey and what it is all really about, very grateful sirs!!! Looking forward to a happy ending here at Chimes and one step closer to my goal.

Excellent infrastructure, Instructors & maintenance facilities. I have gained a lot of knowledge with respect to flying & discipline that I can transfer into my daily life. Not only was the flying training above & beyond standards, but also the ground instructors made sure that theory subjects were covered in meticulous detail.
- Capt. Meghrajsinh Parmar
Chimes Aviation Academy is one of the best flight training school in India. I can tell this from my own personal experience of being a trainee pilot of (Batch-11) at CAA. I fall short of words to express the standards maintained at CAA in terms of flying & ground training. Instructors here not only deliver the required ground & training flying training but also nurture a sense of discipline & responsibility into my lifestyle as a trainee. I would like to thank my CAA family for helping me for completing my CPL training with best standards in aviation.

I was the first student of the Academy, just when it opened and before it's first batch had even walked in. Having done my PPL in UK, I can confirm that the procedure protocol conform to international standards. Their aircraft are the best I have seen in any flying school in the world. Keep it up!
- Prateik Agarwal
This is a culmination of a life long dream. The staff and facilities are fantastic and I am looking forward to along association and many hours here at Dhana. The instructors made me feel absolutely at ease and I appreciate the professionalism with which they handled a complete novice like me. The Cruiser Executive Program that I have enrolled for is unique and ideal for people like me that will find it difficult to enroll for a regular program and for many weeks and months at a stretch. Fantastic and Thank you!

My visit on a very personal level, wherein I had come to assess the academy for my daughter's flying training . From start to finish, I go back very satisfied with all administrative facilities well cared for. The academy itself is very nice and I feel that facets are fantastic. Professionalism was displayed at its best at all times by all. All in all a beautiful experience.

If you have been considering options and trying to figure out whether training in India is a better option than training abroad with respect to Pilot Training, then you ought to read this story.
This is a story of two students - Rahul and Sameer - who want to become airline pilots. Rahul decided to undergo his Commercial Pilot License (CPL) Course from India, whereas Sameer decided to enroll in a US based flying training academy.
See what happens!
