MUMBAI: Aviation regulator DGCA has granted a registration certificate to Captain Amol Yadav's indigenously made aircraft, the Maharashtra Chief Minister's office said here today.

A release issued by the CMO said Yadav met chief minister Devendra Fadnavis today to express his gratitude for personally taking up the issue with Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

"The DGCA has provided a registration certificate to pilot Amol Yadav," the statement said.

It noted that Yadav built his prototype plane on the rooftop of his house in suburban Kandivli in 2011.

"The aircraft was displayed during the Make-in-India week in Mumbai. Yadav, through his company, will build aircraft manufacturing industry in Maharashtra," the release stated.

In view of his vision and a strong desire to make aircraft in the country, the state government extended full cooperation to Yadav's company, it added.

As Yadav was facing obstacles in getting his prototype aircraft registered with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Fadnavis wrote to Modi and also discussed the issue with the prime minister, the CMO said.
