Union Aviation Minister Jyotiraditya Scindia on Tuesday launched the National Air Sports Policy 2022 with the aim of making India a hub for air sports in the world by 2030.

Currently, the policy is set to include a set of 13 air sports such as aerobatics, aero modeling and model rockets, hot air ballooning, drones, gliding, powered gliding, rotorcraft, hang gliding, parachuting and paramotoring, among others. The government has stated that the list of sports under the national sports policy will be amended from time to time as necessary.

Under the new policy, air sports in India will be governed by a four-tier governance structure with the Air Sports Federation of India as the supreme governing body. Next there will be national associations for individual air sports or a collection of air sports, followed by regional or state and territory units of national air sports associations, then the fourth tier is air sports associations at the district level .

The country’s topography and favorable weather conditions are expected to act as catalysts in building the air sports ecosystem in the country, Scindia said.

“From a small market of around 5,000 odd sportsmen creating around Rs 80-100 crore in annual revenue in India, I think we can aim for over Rs 8,000-10,000 crore in annual revenue and generate more than 1,00,000 direct jobs The economy the multiplier benefits in terms of travel, tourism, support services and local infrastructure development will be more than three times,” added Scindia.

The policy also enables the adoption of international best practices in safety, including air sports infrastructure, equipment, operations, training and maintenance, among others. It will also promote the design, development and manufacture of air sports equipment in India in line with the government’s Atmanirbhar Bharat policy.
