In a significant achievement, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), India has granted Chennai based drone startup company Garuda Aerospace authorization for Remote Pilot Training Organization (RPTO) for Small and Medium Class drones.

The company statement claims that this recognition makes Garuda Aerospace the sole drone company in India with a dual certification for both training and manufacturing of small and medium class drones.

This dual authorization enhances Garuda Aerospace’s capabilities, allowing them to advance their training and manufacturing efforts in drone technology.
