Mumbai pilot's aircraft manufacturing dream takes wings, govt sanctions Rs 13 cr for 19-seater plane

Mumbai: The Maharashtra government on Tuesday sanctioned Rs 12.91 crore to a company set up by Mumbai-based commercial pilot Captain Amol Shivaji Yadav to be used for research in indigenous aircraft manufacturing.

A government resolution (GR) uploaded on the state administration's official website said the money is being given to Yadav to build a 19-seater aircraft.

Yadav came into limelight when he built a prototype of a six-seater aircraft on the rooftop of his house in suburban Kandivli in 2011. Aviation regulator DGCA had granted a registration certificate to the commercial pilot's indigenously made aircraft, which was displayed during the Make-in-India week in Mumbai in 2017.
