PM Modi meets young innovator Amol Yadav who manufactured small aircraft

New Delhi:

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday met young innovator Amol Yadav who manufactured small aircraft and wants to indigenously build small aircrafts in India.

Yadav, who is pilot by profession, had showcased his idea for building a fully indigenous model of a small experimental aircraft during a ‘Make in India’ event in Mumbai in February 2016,

According to PMO, Yadav’s project ran into a few delays, including receiving a ‘Right to Fly’ for the experimental project.

PM Modi stepped in to remove “regulatory hurdles” in a project to fly a small experimental aircraft build indigenously, the Prime Minister’s Office said on Monday.

“PM Modi is of the view that determined individuals like Captain Yadav embody the spirit and character of New India. When informed of the delays, concerned authorities were asked to take immediate action to ensure that all regulatory hurdles were removed,” PMO tweeted.

PM Modi also asked Yadav “to keep dreaming big.”

The PMO also posted a picture of the single-engine aircraft developed by Yadav.
