New Delhi: On Monday, the Civil aviation Ministry announced that the Bombay Flying Club has become India’s first DGCA-approved drone training school.
“Good news for drone users. Want to be a professional drone pilot? If yes, then register at the Bombay Flying Club as Bombay Flying Club becomes the first DGCA-approved drone training school of India,” the ministry said on Twitter.
The DGCA approved Bombay Flying Club’s application in an order dated July 20th, “for conducting remote pilot training for remotely piloted aircraft systems”.
Nonetheless, the club will first have to fulfill certain obligations along with its compliance regarding aerial photography, safety, insurance and take clearances from local administration, the Defence Ministry, the Home Ministry, the Indian Air Force, and the Airports Authority of India.
An application was filed by the Bombay Flying Club after the Civil Aviation Ministry started the registration process for the drones which are unregistered with DGCA. The registration process started on June 8.
