DroneAcharya, Hadron Aviation Team Up for Drone Diplomas

The Indian drone industry is on an upward trajectory, with the Drone Federation of India (DFI) predicting a market size of ₹30,000 crore (US$4.02 billion) by 2026. This growth is fueled by the integration of drones in various sectors – agriculture for crop monitoring and precision spraying, filmmaking for captivating aerial cinematography, disaster management for search and rescue operations, and many more. However, alongside this exciting growth, a crucial challenge is emerging – a dearth of skilled drone professionals. A report by RedSeer Consulting estimates the industry to require a staggering 1 lakh (100,0 Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) regulates drone operations in India, mandating the completion of specific training programs and certification for commercial drone pilots. To bridge this critical skill gap and empower individuals to participate in this high-growth sector, leading drone education provider DroneAcharya Aerial Innovations and reputed aviation training institute Hadron Aviation Pvt.
