4th Heli-India Summit 2022:

Minister of Civil Aviation, Shri Jyotiraditya M. Scindia recently inaugurated 4th Heli-India Summit 2022.

  • During the summit the Minister announced 3 new projects for enhancing the helicopter sector in the country which includes HEMS and fractional ownership.

Helicopter Emergency Medical Services (HEMS):

  • It is called Project Sanjeevani by deploying a helicopter in the next few weeks to provide emergency medical services at AIIMS Rishikesh.
  • The helicopter will be based at the hospital at 20 minute notice and will have a service cover to an area of 150 km radius.

Fractional Ownership Model:

  • It helps to grow the non-scheduled operations.
  • It will lower the barrier on the cost of acquisition of helicopters and airplanes through pooled capital by multiple owners.
  • This will allow companies and individuals to minimize their capital outflow by sharing the purchase cost, reducing their exposure to risks and making it financially easier to run a NSOP business.
  • Theme: ‘Helicopters for Last Mile Connectivity’.
