Union Minister of Civil Aviation Jyotiraditya Scindia launches National Air Sports Policy

Ministry of Civil Aviation:

The Minister of Civil Aviation Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia today launched National Air Sport Policy 2022 (NASP 2022).

NASP 2022 lays out the vision of making India as one of the top sports nations by 2030, by providing a safe, affordable, accessible, enjoyable and sustainable air sports ecosystem in India.

Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia, Union Minister of Civil Aviation said, It is time for India to take its rightful place and become global capital of air sports.

We want to create an environment of adventure, thrill and sports in the country. For this, we will leverage the energy of our youth below the age of 35 which accounts for 70 percent of India’s population which is larger than the total population of Europe and three times that of USA.

India has a huge geographical expanse, extending from the Himalayas and the mountainous regions to our states in the northeast to the plains in central India to the coastal regions on the western-eastern coastline, and therefore you have the ability in this country to have the widest diversity of air sports

The policy, according to Minister, will serve to attract air sports enthusiasts from all over the world, especially those who live in areas where harsh winters prevent them from participating. He believes that air sports enthusiasts from Europe, North America, and Australia would flock to India to practice in the winters.

Speaking on the future of Air Sports in India, he said “From a small market size of around 5,000 odd air sports practitioners creating around Rs 80-100 crore of annual revenue in India, I feel we can target over Rs 8,000 – 10,000 crore annual revenue and generate over 1,00,000 direct jobs.

The economic multiplier benefits in terms of travel, tourism, support services and local infrastructure development will be over three times.
