Tuesday, 11 October 2022 | Pioneer News Service | Srinagar

Jyotiraditya M Scindia, Minister for Civil Aviation and Steel,  on Monday announced 3 new projects for enhancing the helicopter sector in the country which includes Project Akash, HEMS and fractional ownership.

The Minister launched a new Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS) under project ‘Sanjeevani’ and the service will start at AIIMS, Rishikesh. “Through the learnings from project ‘Sanjeevani’, we will put in place a National Helicopter Medical Emergency plan in the days to come,” he added.

Addressing the ‘4th Heli-India Summit 2022 – Helicopters for Last Mile Connectivity’, organized by FICCI, jointly with the Ministry of Civil Aviation, Govt of India and Govt of J&K, Scindia said that the government intends to expand medical outreach and access to trauma care services to a wider population across the country using helicopters.

 Scindia also announced a project – ‘Akash’ to enhance the safety in helicopter operations and provide all-weather day and night access. The government has started to develop helicopter specific low level IFR routes using GAGAN under the project Akash. “This will greatly benefit the helicopters and small aircraft operations to non-IFR airfields and helipads,” he added.

Speaking on the airspace corridor, the Union Minister said that the government has already set-up 3 dedicated helicopter corridors in the country.
