Skydiving in India soon: Centre formulating first aerosports policy – Times of India

NEW DELHI: Hrithik Roshan, Farhan Akhtar and Abhay Deol will not have to go to faraway Spain if they plan a sequel to ‘Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara‘ with another sky-diving sequence in it. The government is now planning to allow aerosports like skydiving in India.
Among the activities being considered under this are gliding, ballooning, hang gliding, paragliding, para-motoring, aero modelling and of course skydiving, said a senior official. ZNMD’s sky-diving scene was shot in Spain.
The aviation ministry is working on India’s first national aero-sports policy (NASP) to develop this in the country.
“Aerosports create significant opportunities for growth of tourism, employment generation and interest in aviation activities. A growth-oriented NASP may help attract investments in latest aerosports technology, infrastructure and best practices. With a view to prepare the draft NASP 2021, it has been decided to constitute a committee,” says an aviation ministry order issued this Monday (January 4).
The panel has ministry joint secretary Amber Dubey; DGCA joint DG Bir Singh Rai and representatives of ministries of tourism and youth affairs and sports, aero sports industry and Aero Club of India as members.
The panel will submit draft NASP 2021 on which public comments will be solicited before finalisation so that once implemented it can “address the objectives of growth, investments, employment generation, safety and national security in respect of aerosports.”
Aviation minister H S Puri said on social media Wednesday: “Held extensive discussions with party colleague Rajiv Pratap Rudy on developing aerosports in India. The aviation ministry has already formed a committee earlier this month to recommend a policy framework for this.”
