Flying academy to train aspiring pilots soon at Bhavnagar Airport

Bhavnagar: The Airports Authority of India (AAI) in association with Dunes Aviation Academy will train thousands of aspirants from all over North India to realize their dream of becoming trained pilots at the Bhavnagar airport.

The Dunes Aviation Academy has been launched with the objective of offering quality training to fly aircraft to serve the rapidly emerging aviation sector of the country. The AAI had floated tenders for establishing aviation academies at ten different airports in the country in March 2022.

As part of this process, the Jodhpur’s Ganpat Care Foundation has been allotted the Bhavnagar airport for establishing a flying training academy. The Bhavnagar Airport Director, Manish Kumar Agrawal, and Ganpat Care Foundation’s managing trustee, Navneet Agrawal, signed a lease contract for 25 years.

Aspirants will get trained on four aircraft under the guidance of veteran and experienced trainers at the Bhavnagar academy.

The Dunes Aviation Academy will train aspirants for getting both commercial as well as personal pilots license.

As many as 200 hours of flying training is necessary to get a commercial pilot license whereas 50 hours of flying training is needed in order to get a personal pilot license.

According to Manishkumar Agrawal, the establishment of the flying academy in Bhavnagar will not only lead to the overall development of the airport but of the entire district.

This initiative of the AAI will enable Bhavnagar to build its own identity in the aviation sector of the country. In accordance with the directives of the AAI, facilities to allow flight training both during the day as well as night will be developed at the Bhavnagar Airport. DeshGujarat
