Garuda Aerospace get DGCA approvals for Type Certification and pilot training will create employment for 1 lakh people said Agneeswaran
Agnishwar Jayaprakash, Founder and CEO, Garuda Aerospace, said, “The exclusive double certification by DGCA for Type and RPTO certification is a testament to our indigenous Made in India Drone manufacturing capacities. We are powered and blessed with strong demands of manufacturing 5000 drones in the next 5 months catering to many opportunities. With receiving approvals we are certain that the necessary utilization of skills with significant sector growth will be seen. Our drones will further benefit farmers and agri- entrepreneurs by playing a major role in impacting the farmers’ lives and building new-age careers for young Indians within the drone industry. ”
“Ever since Prime Minister Narendra Modi flagged off 100 Kisan drones in 100 villages, our Kisan drones have empowered farmers and entrepreneurs. The certification will also help Garuda Aerospace create new job opportunities, and advanced pilot training for rural youth and also empower economic growth. Recently Union Minister Anurag Thakur flagged off the drone yatra and mentioned that India will require one lakh drone pilots by the next year. My goal for Garuda Aerospace is to impact 1 billion lives positively and not become the 1st ever-Indian Drone Unicorn Startup. Valuations will come when we create genuine value and I believe we will create an immense impact in several Multi-Billion Dollar sectors in the next 12-15 month’s time. With this Garuda Aerospace gets a chance to fulfill the objective of empowering farmers and creating employment. I’m extremely delighted to receive approvals from DGCA on the auspicious occasion of Kisan Diwas which feels like a perfect culmination of all the hardwork and efforts made by using affordable drone technology for the farmers.” concluded Agnishwar Jayaprakash.
