Garuda Aerospace secures dual certification for training and manufacturing small and medium class drones

Dual certification will enhance Garuda Aerospace’s capabilities, allowing them to advance their training and manufacturing efforts in drone technology.

The Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has granted Garuda Aerospace authorisation for Remote Pilot Training Organization (RPTO) for Small and Medium Class drones. This recognition makes Garuda Aerospace the sole drone company in India with a dual certification for both training and manufacturing of small and medium class drones. This dual authorization enhances Garuda Aerospace’s capabilities, allowing them to advance their training and manufacturing efforts in drone technology, said the company in the statement.

The DGCA’s approval not only fortifies Garuda Aerospace’s commitment to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Namo Drone Didi’ initiative, empowering 15,000 women Self Help Groups with agricultural drones but also supports the company’s goal of training 100,000 youth across India as drone pilots.

Additionally, the certification aligns with Garuda Aerospace’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) initiative, particularly the Equality Drone Training Program benefiting individuals with disabilities.

Garuda Aerospace’s array of small and medium drones caters to diverse applications. Small drones are well-suited for surveillance, monitoring, and photography, while medium drones excel in tasks like agricultural mapping, spraying, infrastructure inspection, delivery services, and emergency response.

He believes that drones hold transformative potential across various sectors and anticipates that the DGCA certifications, coupled with government support, will accelerate the adoption of drones in India, positioning the country as a global hub.

With earlier Type Certificates and RPTO Authorization for Garuda Kisan Drones, and a second Type Certification for medium class drones.
