    The civil aviation ministry should take initiative at national for skill development in various fields of aviation industry. In core areas, licensed or unlicensed personals, the gestation period is about 5 years before they can be productively utilised.
    Mere acquiring license/certificate/qualification is not sufficient for employment. All core areas require skill development in addition to licence/certificate for safety reasons which is vital in aviation whether in air or on ground.
    Government should consider integrating the assests & training programme 25 or so existing flying schools which were earlier part of DGCA Subsidy scheme. Build up on these existing centres by augmenting infrastructure & standard training programme.
    THE IGRUA & GONDIA CENTRES ARE NOT CAPABLE OF MEETING THE PROJECTED DEMAND OF SKILLED PERSONS. Start now with the assets already available with Centre & Sate governments.
