Gujarat all set to have India’s first Aviation Park
Gujarat government has planned to set up the India’s foremost Aviation Park in Ahmedabad having a slew of facilities including an airstrip, training school, helipad and space for setting up small manufacturing units among others.
“Government-owned Gujarat State Aviation Infrastructure Company Ltd (GUJSAIL), this integrated park aims to raise the awareness about the potential of the aviation sector among students, professionals, policy makers and business entities,” according to government official.
However, GUJSAIL which is given the task by the government to carry out the project, has recently identified a piece of land near Bagodara village, about 30 kms from Ahmedabad.
Captain Ajay Chauhan, CEO, GUJSAIL, said, “The main aim of this Aviation Park is to raise awareness about the aviation sector among investors, students and people at large. It will also provide a platform for manufacturing activities and human resources related to the sector.
This will be a first ever Aviation Park in India. There are hardly 3 or 4 such parks in the world. We have identified 60 hectares of land near Bagodara. Now, we will conduct a feasibility study of that location and hoping to finalise that location after government approval by the end of this financial year.
