Hyderabad. Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju launched the ABC Aviation publications on Civil Aviation here on March 17.
With this, ABC Aviation is now available online, on www.abcaviation.net, and from April, it will also be in the market in print as a bimonthly.
While receiving the ABC Aviation Show Report for the India Aviation show here, Mr Raju lauded the efforts of the India Strategic Group in bringing out a comprehensive publication to mark the 5th Edition of India Aviation. He appreciated the contents of both the Show Report as well as the India Strategic magazine on Defence and Foreign affairs.
In an informal chat on the occasion with this writer, the Minister underlined the importance of civil aviation to boost the country’s economy, and said that the Government was interacting with all the players to bring out a new Civil Aviation Policy in the coming weeks.
The Show Report was also presented to Civil Aviation Secretary RN Choubey who appreciated the advent of the new publication with optimism.
The four-day India Aviation show, in which all the big global aerospace companies took part, was inaugurated by President Pranab Mukherjee. It may be recalled that 10 years back in 2006, as the then Defence Minister, he had kindly inaugurated the India Strategic magazine.
