Dear Student,
Welcome to Star Aviation Academy!

In every person’s life a time comes when you feel the need to return to the society what you have gained over years from your experience. This tradition has ensured the monumental amount of scientific knowledge of our ancestors being preserved even today. I too felt that need and in my small way decided to distribute what I had gained over decades of working on modern aircraft and at senior management positions in various airlines.

This was discussed with the senior professionals in aviation field and they all supported the idea. Decision to set up Star Aviation was taken and Star Aviation Academy, the Aircraft Maintenance Engineering school was set up in 2006. It was approved by DGCA and we started our eventful journey. I left my job as Head of Engineering(Delhi Region) of Air Deccan and am trying to impart aircraft maintenance engineering skills to the younger generation. It is a matter of pride that in this short span of about ten years our students are employed in almost all major airlines and some foreign airlines. Many of them have achieved prominent positions.

Aircraft Maintenance Engineering involves hands on work and technical knowledge supported by hands on skills. This privilege was granted to me in abundance and I have certified most modern aircraft like Airbus 330, Airbus 340 and the executive aircraft. In my career spanning over three decades. I have certified ten different types of Aircraft i.e. HS-748, BEECHCRAFT B-200, B-200C, BOEING 727-200, BOEING 767-300ER, CRJ 200, AIRBUS A320, A330, A340 in addition to frontline fighter aircraft MIG 21 (BIS). I had the privilege of repairing many other types of aircraft such as DC-3, Learjet 24, Learjet 24D, HS-125-3A, Beech Baron 55, Beech Baron 58 etc.

In today’s world only quality counts. In the digital technology regime today, a properly trained person can accomplish the given task at a fraction of cost and also ensure safety and reliability. Aircraft Maintenance directly affects safety of travelling public. Therefore quality of training is of utmost importance. We have made efforts to impart quality training to our students. As a result of that our students have consistently achieved top positions in DGCA examinations and best results. This has translated into excellant placements of our students.

We are now trying to take the teaching to even higher level using digital techniques and modern technology. More emphasis will be put on practical aspects and assimilation of theoretical learning. Development is a continuous process. Change is the only constant. We will continue to try to do even better with each passing day.

As someone has stated “Learn from experience of others, life is too short to learn everything from your own experience”.

As per the recently released statistics Indian domestic passenger traffic has grown at high rate in recent years.Indian economy has bounced back. With New Civil Aviation Policy-2016(NCAP-2016) being the guiding document even higher growth is envisaged. New airlines are coming into oiperation and there is huge demand for small aircraft operations on feeder routes which have now become viable under NCAP2016.
There is acute shortage of trained Aircraft Maintenance Engineers world wide. There is greater demand for Indian AME’s in Gulf countries because of international security scenario. Indian AME licence is accepted in all countries which are signatory to International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) Chicago Convention. The present day students are going to be harbingers of growth and future of Indian Aviation.

Welcome you to Star Aviation Academy.

“Quality is our Obsession And Success is a way of life at Star Aviation Academy.”
