Captain Amol Yadav was facing difficulties in getting regulatory clearances from Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) to process his ‘Permit To Fly’, since 2011. On learning about the matter, Chief Minister of Maharashtra, brought it to the notice of the Prime Minister. 

Under the directions of the Prime Minister, the young pilot’s request was quickly processed and he received his ‘Permit to Fly’ clearance from DGCA about three days ago.

Interacting with the Prime Minister today, Captain Amol Yadav expressed his gratitude to the Prime Minister for enabling to fulfil his dream of building a completely indigenous aircraft.

Captain Yadav embodies the spirit of ‘New India’, as envisaged by the Prime Minister, where everything is possible. Amol Yadav’s story is an inspiration for the millions of young Indians, wanting to contribute towards nation building.
