AAI's aviation institute to train IGRUA pilots

In its endeavour to impart quality education to budding pilots and prepare them for regulatory examination, the Indian Aviation Academy, New Delhi, today signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Indira Gandhi Rastriya Udaan Academy (IGRUA), Amethi, India’s only government-owned pilot training institute.

“The MoU will facilitate offering innovative, quality courses jointly by both institutions. It will also contribute in fostering a robust, sustained aviation ecosystem,” the institute said in a statement.

The MoU was signed by Hareendranathan E P, Executive Director, IAA and Krishnendu Gupta, Director, IGRUA, in presence of Amber Dubey, Joint Secretary, aviation ministry, and other senior officials of both the institutions.

IAA is an initiative by state-owned airport operator Airports Authority of India (AAI) with an intent to impart regulatory training to India’s aviation professionals.

“The Indian civil aviation sector contributes to Indian economy by facilitating the growth of air travel, business, trade and tourism. With the demand for skilled human resources increasing sharply in Civil Aviation, the sector needs to ensure adequate availability of quality human resource across all domains of aviation,” the institute said.

Qualified and competent pilots are the torchbearers of safe and efficient aviation who need quality education and training interventions, the institute added in the statement.
