COO Captain Rohaneet Singh Raina shares his inspiring tale in the aviation industry

The aviation industry has been booming in India for the last few years. To make a mark in this field is not an easy task until you are determined and passionate like Rohaneet Singh Raina. The young and dynamic captain from Jammu & Kashmir has defied all the odds to become one of the eminent pilots. He is the COO of Kashmir Air Services, and under his leadership, the company acquired a multi-engine aircraft. Brought up in a humble family, Captain Rohaneet Singh Raina has an achievement to be proud of.

He has obtained six-seater multi-engine aircraft along with approval Initial NOC to operate Non-Scheduled Operator Permit (NSOP) from the Ministry of Central Aviation (MOCA). Captain Rohaneet Singh Raina pursued his training in a flight school in Vancouver, Canada. After pursuing and completing his training, Captain Rohaneet Singh Raina was recognized by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), a Civil Aviation Authority of the USA.

Having an FAA Airmen Certification, he is one of the courageous personalities in the aviation industry. He says, “Aircraft and planes always left me excited. It was my dream to become a Pilot, and I feel proud to transform my dreams into reality.” However, the captain then stated that he faced a hard time after returning to India. "During 2012, the aviation industry plunged into a steep recession and it directly impacted me and my batchmates," said Captain Rohanneet. Without losing any hope, he kept on exploring different horizons in the aviation industry.

It was in 2018, Captain Rohaneet’s fortunes changed when he was offered to start a venture under the name Kashmir Air Services (KAS). Speaking about the same, he said, “I was approached by some close associates to start a venture. It was intriguing, but I had no proper experience of getting into a venture.” With a leap of faith, he started this project, and it received loads of love and support from everyone. Moreover, Captain Rohaneet Singh Raina got tremendous support in seeking Initial NOC approval on NSOP from MOCA. He thanks the system set under the leadership of Honourable PM Shri Narendra Modi Jee.

Throwing light on the KAS project, Captain Rohaneet Singh went on to say that earlier the business model for KAS had the purchase of Super King Air B200 (10 seaters corporate jet). Unfortunately, it could not happen due to its unavailability in India. Instead, he purchased Piper Seneca (PA-34), a six-seater multi-engine aircraft. Currently based in the country’s capital city, New Delhi, Rohaneet Singh Raina calls his grandmother his biggest inspiration in life.
