Federal Aviation Authority
The Indian government signed an agreement with the U.S. Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) to help it develop and modernise its booming aviation sector last month.
FAA assistance will include technical and managerial expertise in developing civil aviation infrastructure, standards, procedures, policies, and training and equipment, a government statement said.
It would also help in the inspection and calibration of aviation equipment and air navigation facilities, and in the certification of Indian airports.
“This agreement is an essential requirement for seeking and receiving assistance from the FAA,” the statement said.
