DroneAcharya Aerial Innovations Limited announces its recent accreditation as a DGCA certified Medium Category Drone Pilot Training Organization. This milestone positions DroneAcharya as one of the pioneering entities to achieve such recognition in the industry.

The certification grants legal authorization for flying drones within the weight range of 25 kg to 150 kg, encompassing crucial sectors like agricultural spraying and delivery drones. This achievement aligns perfectly with the visionary Namo Drone Didi initiative spearheaded by Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi. The initiative aims to empower women with drone piloting skills, particularly in agricultural drone operations, facilitating sustainable livelihoods in a rapidly evolving sector.

DroneAcharya currently operates three DGCA certified drone pilot training centers specializing in micro and small categories, located in Pune, Gandhinagar, and Ropar. Furthermore, the company has expanded its footprint with the acquisition of Aerophile Academy Private Limited, a burgeoning drone pilot training center in Bengaluru.

"We are profoundly grateful for achieving this milestone as a DGCA certified Medium Category Drone Pilot Training Organization. This development unlocks vast opportunities for DroneAcharya to lead in the drone education sector, empowering individuals and advancing innovation", comments Prateek Srivastava, Founder and Managing Director of DroneAcharya.

Notably, DroneAcharya stands as the sole drone training institute in India to conduct drone pilot training sessions in Thailand and the Philippines as well, underscoring its commitment to fostering expertise and innovation across borders.

This certification marks a significant stride for DroneAcharya Aerial Innovations, solidifying its position as a leader in drone education and training while contributing to the advancement of the drone industry both nationally and internationally.
