Thrust Aircraft company aims to explore this untapped potential by connecting smaller cities and remote places. This will promote local businesses. The possibilities and benefits are immense. The air regional connectivity will facilitate ease of doing business and can be utilized for medical and personal travel as well.
Indian government’s UDAN (Ude Desh Ka Aam Nagarik) scheme is not blooming due to the lack of smaller and affordable airplanes. Businessmen, farmers, and doctors waste humongous time traveling to places. We also see a lot of medical cases that need affordable evacuation or transshipment but cannot be met due to lack of air connectivity.
Thrust Aircraft Company's Capt Amol Yadav and his team aim to resolve these challenges by making airplanes for tomorrow.
Progress on Aircraft:- At present, our aircraft TAC003 is undergoing flight tests. It is a 6-seater aircraft which is designed for Indian climate and conditions.
On 15 Aug 2020, TAC003 successfully completed takeoff and landing trials. The next set of trials is to fly a circuit sortie at Dhule and land back at Dhule, the airport in Maharashtra. We aim to finish the second round of trials for TAC003 by end of October 2020. On completion of these trials, we will be proceeding for the last set of trials which is a cross country flying.
For now, we are seeking Rupees 10,00,000 to conduct further tests and research and development of our plane. These funds are critical for conducting mandatory engine and air frame checks and routines prior taking to sky in a controlled environment confined to the limits of Dhule Airport. A small part of funding will also be utilised for getting additional personal insurance cover to secure Capt Amol's family from any eventuality.
We assure you that, the success of this project will bring a huge boost to our national economy in the near future and it will stimulate the regional air connectivity and generate employment.
The test flight of India's first privately built and approved aircraft were conducted on this Independence Day and was covered extensively by media. Glimpses of which can be seen in links mentioned below.
