If you join TBMFA, we have to be at JAR standard: it is our orientation but also a requisite of DCA for newcoming schools: 14 topics at European standard. We will be the first JAR school in Malaysia. But one year later all the schools must be at JAR level. It is a serious upgrade on the current system, but it requires more work...
At the difference of most of other schools, our Ground Instructors are already familiar with the JAR systems (two years or more of JAR experience).

The JAR standard is the European standard; most of airlines like it and it give you more possibilities on the job market, but yes it is tougher. (The JAR standard is a very serious improvement and modernisation)
The JAR topics are:
-Principles of Flight
-Aircraft General Knowledge: 2 papers
1) Airframes, Systems, Emergency Equipment
2) A combined paper on Electrics and Engines
-Instruments (In plus of the current CA6 syllabus, it is covering the avionic of the Last Generation of Aircraft -EFIS, FMS, FBW... Autopilot, Flight Director, Autothrust/ Autopilot, Engines instruments, TCAS, GPWS....)
- Navigation
-Meteorology
-Flight Planning
-VFR and IFR communications
-Human performances and Limitations
-Performance A
-Mass and Balance
-Radionavigation
-Operational procedures
- Air Law (there will be 2 papers, one general and another one specific to Malaysia)

The JAR syllabus is freely available on Internet. From memory, a framed version through JAR FCL1 section 1 (1.470) or detailed version; the JAR Learning Objectives (around 1,000 pages) everything available on the JAA website.

I expect I have not forgotten anything..The questions are with 4 answers (instead of 3 for current DCA system). more you have some JAR questions which consists of statements (up to 8) and you have to choose a combination of those statements... The question Bank is permanently updated and not published. (But from students feedback, a lot of publications). Around 15,000 questions are already stored by JAA!!! So you have to know your subject, difficult to guess and you cannot work only the questions.
The pass mark is 75%.
We are in discussions with DCA concerning the grouping of Topics.
The PPL is unchanged

As already stated all the schools must be at JAR standard before end of December 2010.
Plenty of books available on the market ....

JAA as already expressed is the Joint Aviation Authorities (more than 40 "DCA" have merged)
JAR are the regulations (R stand for Regulation) of the JAA

JAA is going to be a department of EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) (and maybe restructured under another name after 2012).

Current DCA system still provide 4 answers@options

When the syllabus change to JAA it means *SAY BYE-BYE to MUGUP*..
you are on you own...you have to know every single thing in the book...
quite tough ek...
