There are various aircrafts airlines fly like A320 ( Airbus 320 ) , B737 ( BOEING 737 ) , ATR 72-600 , Q400 etc . It is always advisable for Indian students to do this rating from a TRTO which provides training as per DGCA curriculum, as it is very important to do training as per Dgca s syllabus otherwise one could have trouble getting type rating endorsed on his Indian Dgca Cpl .
