Nowadays, to seek for a flying academy in Malaysia has never been so convenience as yet, since more and more flying schools are taking root in Malaysia and providing quality flight training programs, therefore, basically there is no reason to cease one’s ambition from being a  professional pilot by saying that fail to look for a well-equipped flying academy with experienced trainers, excellent learning syllabuses and a pleasurable study atmosphere.

Thus, for the rest of this article, we would like to introduce 8 flying academies that are approved by the DCA and are strategically scattered in Malaysia, which all are providing first class trainings for future pilots.

KIST Aviation Academy Sdn. Bhd. (KISTAA)

How KISTAA talks about itself, “Kist Aviation Academy (KISTAA) has joined to complement the other Flying Training Schools in Malaysia and hopefully addressed the issue of the shortage and the ever rising need of training sufficient pilots both in country and worldwide. The statement by International Air Transport Association (IATA) is very real in that the supply of pilots in respect of aircraft deliveries would not be able to meet the demand worldwide, and we believe Malaysia can do a part of this remedial contribution. All KISTAA courses are geared fully towards the required standards as set out by DCA as well as the Joint Aviation Authority (JAA) of the European Aviation Safety Agency- (EASA). The prospective candidates will start the course first with orientation to teamwork, leadership and group decision making module, and also effective communication. Other than the required theory subjects taught, crew resource management (CRM), aviation safety management and survival modules will also be introduced somewhere in the middle and towards the end of the course. KISTAA aims to fully prepare its cadet pilots as a well disciplined personality for a flying career in the commercial aviation industry with a high competent level of aviation knowledge and the accompanying aviation skill and ratings.”

    Hello there! [=:D]

    However, you may try to contact the institutes listed above and enquire more about their scholarship offers.
    I hope this might somehow help you out. [=:)]

  4. Hallo there..
    Im actually interested with this field.. I do want to be a pilot..
    But the question is, is there a higher education in aviation field in Malaysia??
    I mean not just as a pilot and get the licence.. But more than that. Such as Diplomas or bachelors that provided in any universities in Malaysia? Especially in science/flight aviation??
    I do found 1 in private ‘U’ in Malaysia but I cant find a lot of information especially its requirements and how to start. What I found is just a Bachelor Of Flight Aviation with collaboration with USA higher flight education. But I could’n find Diploma In Science/flight Aviation in any University in Malaysia.

    May U help me to find one?? Please??
    I do ask many questions to diffrent peoples, but Im so sad they never reply me.. I hope you are also not do the same thing..
    Thank You.

  5. HI, I Just want to enquire whether is there any chance of beeing an aircraft engineer cum pilot?Are there any possiblities?

  6. Dear Remo,
    Learning is always good no matter what you learn. You can take double degrees at a time, but you’re probably unable to take two jobs at a time. We are unsure about whether there’s actually a job with requirement of these two fields. You should really check it out by calling any of those airline companies.

    Thank you for your valuable comment.
    E Yau.

  7. hey may i ask,do i have to go to college then to the flying school or do i apply for the flying school right after i have gotten my results for my SPM examinations?? [=::)]

  8. Dear Alvin,

    Is there a minimum requirement in SPM results in order to participate in the course?

    What are the estimated fees that we need to pay in order to obtain “pilot license” for commercial airlines company?

    200k? 300k?



  9. Dear Joshua

    Yes, there are certain requirements that must be met in order for you to participate in any flying courses, if you are planning to obtain a CPL which is Commercial Pilot License, your SPM result is required upon enrolling. For more accurate and precise information, we strongly recommend you to refer to this post Qualifications and Requirements of Becoming a Professional Pilot. This post shall answer most of your queries.

    The tuition fee may be vary from time to time, if you were asking about the tuition fee for obtaining a CPL, assumably will be around RM210,000.00. For your information, a CPL usually will be issued along with IR which stands for Instrumental Rating. You can refer to this post for the explanation of IR, Qualifications and Requirements of Becoming a Professional Pilot.


  10. to Qiena,
    2 be a pilot, theres no need a dip or deg, its just a license.
    when you enter flying school,you just learn 2 get the licence, same like you take your driving licence, no need to take diploma or something else 2 be a pilot, BUT,
    IF you’re interested in diploma or degree in aviation,
    theres one university in malaysia that provide it, it is not a pilot training, but, aircraft engineering, more information,,
    if you hav more questions 2 ask bout aircraft engineering, this is my email, b4 i enter there, i also dont know bout it until somebody tell it 2 me, thats why i want 2 help anyone who’re really intersted in aviation, inshaaallah, i will help you

    [email protected]

  11. @al-mujahid
    Thank you for your valuable comment. We will consider to publish an article encompasses information that you’ve given to us.

  12. i wan to be a pilot…
    i’m so intrested with this corse.. there any scholar for me?
    my family not rich…
    i do have the problem with the fees…
    cn i have a scholarship to enter the flying academy??? [=:(]

  13. Salaam

    dear shafiq,

    actually i dont know so much about how 2 be a pilot, bcoz im not a pilot, im just future aircraft engineer, anyway, i’ll try my best 2 help you. what i know is, if you have a good result in your spm, you can get the scholarship,

    However, you may try to contact the institutes listed above and enquire more about their scholarship offers. dont be shy, just call them and ask everything that you want.

    1 more, if you are really want to be a pilot whithout need to worry about the scholarship, i suggest you to enter KTU, (KOLEJ TENTERA UDARA) if you enter there, no need to worry about the fees bcoz it is all scholarship from the government, 100%, but that is military pilot, n working with the malaysian army if im not mistaken, just until your age is 40, after that, you will retire unless you’re the army that hav a high rank, you can continue working with the government.

    BUT, after 40, you can stop working with the gov n work with the commercial airlines, i know this bcoz i hav i friend, his father (ex-military pilot) is a commercial pilot now. you can try search on the web about ktu n how to enter there

  14. what are the different between Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Technology (Manufacturing), Diploma in Aircraft Maintenance Technology (Composite), Diploma Of Engineering Technology In Aeroplane Maintanence… and which one is better???

  15. #diploma in aircraft maintenance technology(manufacturing) – you will learn how to maintaince the a/c (aircraft), the fuselage, the engine, n so on. n you’re specialist in manufacturing aircraft, means, you can also work with the aircraft company that producing the a/c parts,

    #diploma bla3 (composite) – same, you will be train as a skilled worker in maintaining the a/c,(fuselage, engine, dan yg sewaktu dengannya) but you’re also a specialist in the painting of the a/c fuselage(a/c body)

    #diploma bla3 (avionics) – you will be trained as a skilled worker in maintaining the a/c – just electrical n wiring systems in a/c, the risk to die is the lowest compared with the 2 above, bcoz maintaining the engines is very dangerous n risky.

    anyway, which one is better, you the judge. =)

  16. diploma aircraft maintenance technology(MANUFACTURING, COMPOSITE N AVIONICS), that is DCA(department civil aviation malaysia), which means, that diploma allows you to work in malaysia only,


    diploma of engineering techology in (aeroplane maintenance, helicopter manintenence, avionics maintenance)that one is EASA syllabus n standard, which is all worldwide use it, which means that you can work worldwide with your qualification. >>this is new course in uniklMIAT

  17. lpas habis diploma is there any scholarship untuk kite smbung degree kt luar negara???? or memang kene sambung kat miat trus???

  18. I have completed ATPL Technical exams (CAA). I have 30 hrs of flying in HPT-32 (single engine), 60 hrs of flying in Dornier-228 (twin engine) and 1660 hrs of flying in Y-12 (twin engine). Total 1750 hrs. I am expecting to do my flying test in a twin engine aircraft. In Sri Lanka it is too costly. Is there anyway to complete my flying test at your academy. How can I get the rates of your aircraft. please let me know.

  19. ada, mmg ada, tp result kenelah cemerlang, tp tak taulah, dengar2 sekarang susah skit gov nak tanggung bg biasiawa untk oversea, sbb kos dia sngt tinggi, lbih kurang 700.000 kalau nak sambung degree kt oversea, lgpun kat miat dah ada degree(cost-80,000), n degree kt miat 2 same jer syllabus die dgan kt oversea 2, cuma yg berbeza lecturer n environment. kalau masuk miat, mmg dpt pantuan mara so bila ada lepasan miat yg nk sambung oversea pn mmg mara yg tanggung, biasanyalah…tp yg mcm aku ckp td lah, skrang mcm susah la nk dpt scholarship sbb sku dengar mara x ckup duit, tapi walaumcmmnpun, chances utk smbung oversea mmg ada….

  30. Good day,

    I have done a few research regarding pilot schools especially in Malaysia and Australia. I find that in Malaysia, MFA and HMA are quite good, and i find Basair in Australia is quite tempting as well. Currently i’m doing Mechanical Engineering and will be graduating soon in June. I wish to either further my studies in either aircraft maintenance engineer or a pilot. Could anybody give me a few tips regarding how to choose pilot schools and how do i get in contact with them. Thanks

  31. I’m looking for a part-time PPL lesson, say training or attending the classes over the weekend. Please advice me what to do.

  32. @Simon Liew
    Hi there, you may have to pay a visit or personally contact to intended flying academy. Usually it is possible to do so and can be worked out, as long as time can be arrange nicely between trainee and trainer. This is due to PPL is mostly obtained by individual who wishes to fly privately and to take up flying as a hobby, therefore the arrangement of training period can be more flexible, compared to CPL and ATPL lessons which are usually conducted in more of formality.

  33. Hi am outside Malaysia but in Africa and i just wanted to know how i can gain addimission to the aviation and flying school when the only thing i have now is a high school diploma… and how do i go about it?

  34. @ leslie
    In Malaysia, to join any flying schools, a diploma is actually more than enough, if you want to know more about it, please visit to Qualifications and Requirements of Becoming a Professional Pilot.
    To ensure your qualification is eligible, we advise you to seek confirmation from the DCA, Malaysia, whether your educational qualification is approved by the DCA’s standards or not.

  37. Am a nigerian and i want to attend a flight trainning instiyute in malaysia,pls i need information how to go about it considering payment details and any other registration information that is necessary for me to know,thaks

  38. hye peeps,

    yes2 we know all of you wanted to become a pilot.. i want to fly an airbus, i want to fly a boeing, i want to fly a concorde and so on..
    Well, flying and becoming a pilot had become one of the most hottest jobs but with minimal vacancies. I can assure all of you that even a kid that sees an airplane in the blue sky wanted to become one. But does the kid have real interest about flying? Yes he/she have the passion of soaring high up in the sky living the dreams of unfortunate others. Everyone I meet who wanted to become a pilot says they have great burning passion on flying and they keep going on babbling their head off talking about passion, and lastly what can I conclude from their unworthy chatter of passion? I can conclude that all they know about piloting is that the job is hot to chicks and their pockets are full. That is the majority of “I want to become a pilot” people really are up to. If you really wanted to become a real not just passionate about flying and money pilot, you ought to know what are the risk and challenges of a pilot. Ground training is just a piece of cake from what the job had to offer. Even so, there’re still those who couldn’t stand the stress backed off, not even touched the school’s plane yet. Once graduated, you had to become the best in order to be recruited by airline companies. Even some graduates would only accept offer from big comapany, thus leaving most of them jobless because they won’t accept the offer from small ones. Once recruited, you have to undergo vigorous 1-2years of rating training regarding the types of aircraft the company owns. Even this stage causes some to drop out. Once you’ve started flying, do you know what pilots would even do in the cockpit? Do you even know what pilots have to stand for when facing extended 8-12 hours of prolonged flight? Do you even know how they and their family misses each other during the usually 3-4 days away time from home? These are among the challenges I can pronounce to you guys for now because I just can’t stand people babbling about becoming a pilot but not knowing even a single thing about it. If you think you are almost ready for the job. Try installing a flight simulator on your computer and try the IFR routes that takes 3-4 hours without increasing the simulator speed. Try flying like normal pilots, and i mean with procedures. Starting from dark and cold towards parking at the gates. And try with real ATC’s online.

    This is just to give a small overview of what you guys should expect. [=think]

  39. been looking for scholarship/loan as i’m a prospective part time student in aviation management. try to look at conventional scholar/loan but seems they specified field of study which not so related with mine. anyone with info, please?

  40. @woody I’m agree with your points. Become a pilot is my big dream and it is not easy (even you are flying sim). I do spend hour and hours in flight simulator. Was flying with Cessna 172 from point A to B without increasing the “sim rate”, just wanted to complete 40 hours single engine flight. Has flew in different weather condition that really killing you in a single engine aircraft. After that, taking up the Sim PPL test. Finally, I got PPL Cert from Flight Simulator. To test your passion, Flight Simulator is a very good software for those who deserve flying or become pilot.

  41. You can buy the original dvd at any computer games store. Try finding FSX. That’s the latest one if I’m not mistaken. Once familiar with the simulation, try joining online with real ATC’s and other pilots. I recommend

  42. thank you for your information i went through the seven website but
    i could not find the courses fees, can i get the average courses fees for all the colleges, and where is the Malaysian licence is accepted in the world wide thank u very much.

  43. I’m a Malaysian n do i really need a SPM result to enroll for the flying course?
    I din take SPM n does tat mean i dun hav the opportunity to study this course?

  44. hi there

  48. Hello,

    I would like to know is age always be the major factor when want to become a pilot for commercial airline? My age is now 36 yrs and wonder is it still consider too late to pursue this pilot career?


  49. Dear all,

    I can see that most of u guys are concern about eye glasses. Well, rest assured coz most academies won’t simply turn down ppl with power of 500 and below. But they will choose those who have better eyesights if there too many to choose from.

    The latest known fees for PPL, CPL/IR and Frozen ATPL are roughly around RM270,000. There are scholarships being offered by MAS and AirAsia for Malaysians, but they’re tough to grab, unless your dad works as the VP there. So, ganbatte to all those pilot wannabe!!!

  50. hey there,being a pilot was a dream of mine since i was a kid…so,could you tell me what should i do when i’ve got my SPM slip next year?pls do reply a.s.a.p!!thanks…

  51. may i ask 🙂 , i heard after finish the aircraft engineering course i have to do at least 2 years training to be qualified for sit to license exam , is that right ?
    and , mr.mujahid did u mean the new diploma in uniklMIAT is better than the old one for the international students or what ?? because am not malaysian and i might join MIAT on JAN intake !! [?]
    thanx 🙂 ..

  52. saya juga bermnat nak jd sy calon lepasan stpm..boleh sy mencapai cita2 untuk jd pilot?mcam mane untuk sy apply untuk jd pilot..

  53. I agreed with woody, everyone loves flying and wanting to be a pilot, but you need to have a good attitude,fit mind,maintain good health till you reach 65yrs old.Don’t depend on handout but work your way-out to meet the prerequisite.You don’t have to be a NASA scientist to be a pilot.Get your license,grap any general aviation job/ corporate etc…in order to clock your hours.
    Airlines in Malaysia does not always pays you well.Infact, General aviation for oil company,corporate flying or flying for vvip/presidential flt do pays expatriate pilot heaps outside Malaysia.Your ICAO license is recognized within the organizations.All you need is to sit for the legislation paper in that country to convert your license. [=:D]

  54. Hello, I’m 17 years old and also taking Malaysia Education Certificated(SPM)this year.

    My ambition is always to become pilot someday but unfortunately I can’t take physics subject due to some circumstances… and if I do still want to become Pilot .. can I still qualified with Biology,Chemistry and some science subject? or should I take diploma in Aviation. Please reply this ASAP .. Im really need to know and I also still researching with more information on the Internet … I am very good condition in health,very good in Math’s and very intent to becoming Pilot …

  55. Dear Shah,

    Physics subject is not compulsory. Minimum requirement to do the license is 5 credits in SPM, credit in Math, English,Science subject and pass in BM.

    Another important thing that you need to have is a strong financial. In local flying school, you need at lease RM250,000 to support your studies.

    Aviation Management College also agent for TVSA Pilot School, Australia. Total cost including living cost for CPL-Commercial Pilot License is RM150,000. If you interested to get ATPL after that, you need another RM60,000. You can do ATPL- Air Transport Pilot License in any flying school in Malaysia.

    Taking Diploma in Aviation Management or Flight Operation Management is a great idea. Tony Fernandez & Idris Jala are not pilots but they was successful and powerful in aviation world [=:)]

    Currently MAS and Air Asia do not hold any cadet pilot recruiting programs. There was once Air Asia doing so, not more than a month ago, but now the application has seen been closed, instead at present they are just hiring professionals for other working posts, such as captain and technical person. You can choose to wait for another recruiting session from any of these airlines, however, if you feel like do not want to wait for it, you can go for another option, which is to join an aviation school/academy, in case you have no idea on where to find an study place, here is some guide, Malaysia’s Aviation and Flying Schools.

    Speaking of online application form, as mentioned, most of the major airlines in Malaysia at present do not recruit any cadet pilots, therefore we believe that currently there is no online form available for it. In case you change your mind and wish to study in flying school, please be sure to take a look at this post, Malaysia’s Aviation and Flying Schools, as you can get certain important information such as websites for respective academies, by visiting to those websites, you can access to the downloading of application form, as well respective query (contact) means.

  57. people.. if you’re really interested in FLYING itself.. you wont be spending worthless hours figuring out how to get into MAS and AirAsia every single day.. it really shows how lack in knowledge some of you have in the aviation industry itself, thus showing you’re not really passionate of flying but towards the title of ‘PILOT’, girls and the big bucks…. instead, if you’re really interested, you’d be hanging out at any local flying clubs around Malaysia with the ppl there getting to know more about flying and maybe build your hours there.. then, you’ll realize how many more competent people or pilots should i say there is in Malaysia.. you’d be more interested in General Aviation if you’re really into flying.. get what i mean??? [=curious] [=curious] [=curious] [=curious]

    We come to the questions and I hope the answer is weighted and sure of it

    1_ certificate required for registration in the aviation academy (ie, aviation academy in Malaysia without exception) …

    2_ period of study in Malaysian aviation academy (required)

    3_ cost to study in Malaysian aviation academy and how much premium each month

    4_, and if you do not perfected the English language what the study period at the Institute of English

    Thank you for your attention to ..

  71. Hi future pilots.

    An issue that all student wishing to join a flying school must
    understand is no flying school gives any student an assurance of completion in the duration that they promise.

    Please make sure that you speak to the students of that school on their progress and internal situations first, before embarking on the course. As you may already know, schools have given students false promises and shattered their dreams by delaying training to over 3 years in numerous cases due to extremely slow progress, and even we have see many examples that schools closed down and the students left with nothing after settling full payments of more than $250,000.

    For students who start fresh, please check on the schools real situation before embarking onto the flying course because it is
    very expensive and some poor parents slog for the money and even trade their properties for this course.

    For students who were cheated by flying schools, i suggest that you approach some profesional consultants for some free advise. These consultants offer free consultation services to students who were cheated by schools and help them out to complete what they started.

    Students who have passed all the theory papers and also the UK CAA-6 or the JAR exams and have little flying or have not started flying yet, i strongly suggest you contact and speak to them. I understand that they can arrange for single-engine flying to be completed in 5-6 months overseas and complete the twin-engines in malaysia within 3-4months. And the best thing is that the completion is 100% guarenteed to be on time.

    As they are many false ones out there, there are some nice consultants who are highly recommended and you may write or speak to them such as: [email protected], hp : +6016-345 1297. I understand that once the student agrees to pursue their flying, a fee is charged which its alright as they prepare all documents, admin charges, bookings, legal documents and etc. right from scratch until completion of the course. The consultants also monitor the students progress and deal directly with the schools to ensure the students progress as planned.

    All the best to you guys and Happy Landings.

  72. hye there..

    mohd isa

  83. i am from india.. i want to know about the fee details and duration of the course and any placement vl be ther after ompletion of course

  84. To Mohd Isa;

    Some discussions are on going and probably in a short while helicopter Pilot training will start again in Malaysia.
    However due to the operational costs of Helicopters, it should be underlined that helicopter training price is at least twice the fixed wing one.

    To all:
    A suggestion: before enrolling in a Flight Training Organisation, you should check if you have the aptitudes as required by Airlines, because one thing is to get the Licence, another one is to be enrolled by an Airlines.

    Just my 3 cents

  85. Hello
