Type of exams

Yes, UK CAA statistics show a rate of failure around 20% (european students). It is not going to be as easy as now, but it is feasible , but requires a dedicated amount of work.
I have personnally trained Air Lingus and Airtour cadets (flight Training Europe- Jerez/ Spain): they were working very hard, I remember the batches decided to stay in the Campus two months without going outside the school a single day of week-end, but we pass everybody through with only few resits. Also I remember some a-typic private students;
- a greek running an estate agency, already working since 10 years (forgotting all his school learnings in Maths and physics), very hard worker: he pass through first attempt
- a british farmer (40 years old), he has sold his farm, because he want to be a pilot: we pass him through, but same, he has worked 12 hours per day during a year.
- an icelandic student, with a very poor level of english, amidst a class of irish, British... He work so hard that he finish at the head of his batch
Just to show you that the JAR exams,.... you can do but you will have to work hard.

From this parents must really think about their child ambition..Not just to give permission to their child just simply because their child wants to become an airline pilot because of the glamour of the career. This will really make the risk more risky to be a private cadet.Very risky invesment for a parent :o.o:

On contrary, the "tourists" will be sent back home quickly as they cannot make the ground phase: it will save money for their parents. It is better than to go to the end, get a piece of paper (a Licence) and in fact not to be at the standard required by the Industry, and to be unemployable after a whole training investment: lost of time and money, better to sort at the beginning. The motivated people will go to the end and will succeed: i have experienced this many times.
The Industry want the JAR standard....This is your best guarantee....

One example is the situation in India where thousand(s) of students were flocking to the lowest costs of training. Back home with a CPL/IR low standard....less than 10% find a job, and some TRTO request a level up to standard of those 10% selected before continuing the type Rating: shame and very costly Re-Training in Europe. To get a licence is not the aim... To be at the standard required by the Industry is definitively better and a better insurance for your future.

Just seen the results of all flying academy in Malaysia. Even with the current syllabus and mugups there are a lot of cadets which failed various subject. To get 100% passing rate, how will TBMFA filter this "tourists"?

As per information from DCA, students involved in the current system will continue under the current system until end of 2010.
My comments: the JAA examination structure is different from current one, it should be difficult to bridge one system on the other.

I agree, the JAA structure will definitely filter out the "wannabe's" from the real Wannabe's.. You've just got to know your stuff at the end of the day.. Even with the current CAA structure, and with the amount of muggup's available, the failure rate is still quite high..

Indian pilots don't find job because there is no job in India for low time pilots.
It has nothing to do with the standards.

Yups that is true. I have seen the DGCA (Indian DCA) questions on Navigation and Radio Aids . . . all I can say is OMG!!! More of mathematics than piloting if you ask me . . .
