We are “VIYADDRONY RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ASSOCIATION” a section 8 company registered under the Companies Act, 2013, for promoting Research and Development in the field of Seaplanes and Special purpose boats.
We have designed and developed India’s first single-seater microlight Seaplane for which we achieved India Book of Records 2021.

According to a study it is observed that the growth rate of Aviation sector in INDIA is just 16% over the past decade. Whereas it is more than 60% in USA and other countries. We would like to take up this opportunity to help India's Aviation sector grow. In India Opportunity is very less in Aviation sector because in India people still take aviation just like a mode of travel and Entertainment.
 Aviation according to us is a competition between different nations in terms of experiment and research activity.

Our team has a dream to build a unique Glider.

Therefore, we have taken up this Platform to showcase our previous achievements in order to build a Dream Glider of Ours which will be INDIA's very own glider plane.

We are collaborating with final year students of Sri Devi Institute of Technology, Mangalore to build a Single seater non-powered Glider.

The objective of our project is to build a glider aircraft with a minimum budget for the flying enthusiast to experience flying under safe conditions. The special feature of this glider is that it is mainly designed for flying short distances as compared to any commercial jetliner or a military jet using Winch launching. The engine on the ground powers the winch, connected to a cable launch system. The cable is then attached to the bottom of the glider. In a short amount of time, the glider gains substantial altitude during this process and releases the winch line before continuing flight. The glider is designed mainly for tourism purposes. The design of an Unpowered Single Seater Glider is a conceptual understanding of aerodynamics. The model of the glide will prove flyable and reach the target range in water. As there is no engine in a glider, it has no capability to produce the forward thrust needed to maintain its velocity. It uses the simple concept of converting its potential energy to kinetic energy using wind power. The glider will have a narrow fuselage and very long, narrow wings with a high aspect ratio and winglets. This glider is designed to be very efficient to descent very slowly. By the thermalling effect of heated air, the glider will stay for a long period in the air. This concept of gliders can also be used for sports.
