Delhi Flying Club, Delhi was established in the year 1928,
Delhi Flying Club was established in May 1928 with the aim of training young men & women as aviators in India. Since then it has had the distinction of training hundreds of Pilots & Engineers: prominent amongst the alumni being Late Shri Rajiv Gandhi, Former Prime Minister of India and Late Shri Biju Patnaik, Former Chief Minister of Orissa. Delhi Flying Club initiated the first air mail service of the country and also is accredited with the training of Airforce Pilots in the 60s and the Naval Pilots in the 80s. It also participated in both the wars with Pakistan i.e. 1965, 1971. Currently the club runs an AME School whose alumni occupy very prominent positions in the Airlines across the globe and also undertakes the ground classes for Pilot’s Licenses like PPL, CPL & ATPL. The club undertakes maintenance of VIP aircraft of State Governments of Haryana. It has duly approved Engine shop where overhauls of Lycoming and Continental Engines are undertaken. It also has an Instrument Workshop for undertaking bench checks of Instrument & an approved NDT shop.
The Club presently has two serviceable Cessna 152 aircraft, but is unable to fly as the flying activity at Safdarjung was stopped some seven years ago because of security considerations. The efforts are on to re-commence flying activities as a joint venture with Chimes Aviation Academy Pvt. Ltd at Dhana Airfield, Sagar (M.P).
Since July 1987 Delhi Flying Club established full time Basic Aircraft Maintenance Engineer’s licence course of 3 years duration duly approved by DGCA vide letter No.- 20-86/88-AI(2) dt. 12-9-1988. The school is approved for HA, JE, LA,PE and RN. Till date we have recruited 24 batches. Since July 2008 the school has been approved by DGCA for implementing the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering training programme of 4 years duration (EASA-66). At the initial stage we had lot of difficulties in arranging the practical’s etc. Subsequently we now have full fledged basic training facilities to conduct the “On The Job Training”. This includes Lead-Acid Battery Shop & a MAGNAFLUX Machine, duly approved by DGCA. We have two CESSNA aircraft, one RALLYE and a B-200 Super King Air aircraft which is being maintained by us.
Due to change over of scheme from BAMEL to 4 years training w.e.f July 2008 we have recruited Instructors possessing degree in Engineering with adequate experience.
