Drone Pilot Jobs in India

The advent and subsequent popularity of drones in India have ushered an array of opportunity for amateur enthusiasts and experts alike. The demand for drone-based solutions in multiple commercial and infrastructural fields in the country has resulted in a boom of Drone pilot jobs in India. The employment options levied through the widespread applications of the UAVs might be viewed as an additional benefit to the Indian youth and a much-needed boost to the national hiring rates.

The Director General of Civil Aviation, under the Ministry of Civil Aviation, set the requisites for flying drones through the announcement of National Drone Policy, 2018. The regulation which has been titled Requirements for Operation of Civil Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS), sets down the eligibility of the drone operator as well as the requirements for the device. Any operators interested in Drone pilot jobs in India are bound to abide by the postulates of the policy.

Some preliminary regulations to be followed by all aspirants for Drone pilot jobs in India include

  • The operator must be an adult and a citizen of India.
  • The operator must have passed the 10th exam in English.
  • The operator must have undergone training on the ground and necessary practice.

Apart from the above requirements, the pilot must register the drone, its owner and the operator prior to individual flights. Obtaining permissions for the flight from the authorities through the Digital Sky app is mandatory, which forms the No Permission, No Take-off (NPNT). A trained drone operator seeking a drone pilot job in India must be aware of the categories of drones and their respective compliances to be fulfilled. Along with this, a sound knowledge of flying zones is crucial. The safety of the drone and the pilot are ensured through these regulations.
