Today, flying is both a science and an art, a profession that must be studied in a professional academy.

A finely focussed school, the Akademi trains cadets up to the level where they are eligible for an Indian Commercial Pilots¶ Licence. Our goal is to provide training of a standard acceptable anywhere in the world. To this end the Akademi continues to seek new infusions of technology and technique. After all, in an institution which seeks to produce the best pilots in the world, the sky is the limit. Office of Chief Ground Instructor ± to provide information pertaining to Pilot training.

New flying institute in Maharashtra's Gondia

Upgradation of Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Academy also on cards
BY A CORRESPONDENT February 25, 2006 The Indian government has proposed to set up a new flying institute at Gondia in Maharashtra an d upgrade the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi in Uttar Pradesh. Even though, the investments for the institute were not mentioned, the government intends to invest around Rs 57 crore for the upgradatiion of the academy. A final decision on the proposed new institute is yet to be taken, but the institute is expected to induct 100 candidates annually. The process of land acquisition at Gondia had been completed, Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel informed the Rajya Sabha. The government is also planning to refurbish the Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Uran Akademi, a civilian pilot training facility, in Rae Bareli. The upgradation includes induction of single-engine and multi-engine aircraft, refurbishing of helicopters, modernisation of the runway, construc tion of additional buildings for hostel, hangar and office, and acquisition of the adjacent Sultanpur airfield. With the upgradation, the academy at Rae Bareli that offers training to 40 personnel every year will be able to increase its capacity to 100 students. India's aviation industry is booming and is witnessing emergence of both full-fledged and low-cost carriers. However, the industry is under a severe manpower crunch, both for flying and ground staff. Many organisations like Boeing, IndUS Aviation and Airbus Industrie are others looking at setting up flight training institutes in the country.
