B.Sc. Aeronautical Science


To be forefront in the aviation field by contributing to the intellectual, social and economic development of the aviation industry and the citizens of our nation. It is served through precept, research fueled by the advanced curriculum to endeavour the highest standards to excel in their Aviation profession.


  • To empower and encourage the students with the knowledge and practical skills required in the field of Aviation and Aeronautical Science.
  • To impart quality education through the technologically advanced curriculum which would be delivered by the industry experts.
  • To train the students to have in-depth knowledge of the subjects in the field of aviation and groom them in soft skills & survival skills.

Vistas’ B. Sc Aeronautical Science program stands out as a distinguished three-year degree course, duly approved by the University Grants Commission (UGC) in New Delhi. Our comprehensive curriculum is designed to provide students with an in-depth understanding of aeronautics, focusing on various facets of the industry, while meeting the essential theoretical requirements for obtaining a Commercial Pilot License (CPL) from the Indian Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). The program goes beyond the scope of aviation, incorporating modules that cover crucial areas such as Air Traffic Control (ATC), airport operations, airline ground and flight operations, flight operations, aircraft maintenance, and aerospace.

Program Highlights


Theoretical Knowledge for CPL: Our B.Sc Aeronautical Science program places a strong emphasis on providing students with a solid foundation in theoretical aeronautical knowledge, essential for the successful pursuit of a Commercial Pilot License (CPL) as per DGCA standards.

ATC and Airport Operations: Students delve into the intricacies of Air Traffic Control (ATC) and gain insights into airport operations, covering both technical and operational aspects to ensure a comprehensive understanding of the dynamic aviation environment.

Airline Ground and Flight Operations: The program extensively covers the complexities of airline ground and flight operations. Students learn about various procedures, protocols, and challenges involved in ensuring the seamless functioning of airlines.

Flight Operations: Our curriculum introduces a specialised module focusing on flight operations, offering students an in-depth understanding of planning, execution, and monitoring of flights. Topics include route planning, weather considerations, and emergency procedures, preparing students for key roles in the operational aspects of aviation.

Aircraft Maintenance: We’ve incorporated a dedicated module that delves into aircraft maintenance, covering the critical aspects of ensuring aircraft safety and reliability. Students will learn about maintenance procedures, inspections, and regulatory compliance, providing them with the knowledge required to contribute to the integrity of aircraft systems.

Aerospace: The program now includes a module on aerospace, exposing students to the broader realm of aeronautics beyond commercial aviation. This module covers space exploration, satellite technology, and advancements in aerospace engineering, broadening students’ perspectives and preparing them for diverse career opportunities within the aerospace sector.

Practical Training: To enhance the learning experience, our program includes practical training sessions, allowing students to apply their theoretical knowledge in real-world scenarios. This hands-on approach prepares them for the practical challenges they may encounter in their aeronautical careers.

Industrial Visits: We believe in providing our students with exposure to the industry through organised industrial visits. These visits facilitate a better understanding of the operational environment, giving students a firsthand look into the day-to-day workings of airports, airlines, aircraft maintenance organisations, and aerospace companies.

Internships: As part of the curriculum, students are offered opportunities for internships in both domestic and international airports, airlines, aircraft maintenance organisations, and aerospace companies. These internships provide valuable industry experience, helping students bridge the gap between academia and the professional world.
