Civil Aviation DepartmentThe aviation activity in the Gujarat state was started in the year 1973 by a separate division in G.A.I.C. In the beginning, this division was started with a purpose to help the farmers by aerial spraying on various crops like; sugar cane, cotton, ground-nut, tuvar, etc. by helicopter and fixed wing Aircrafts. By these activities, the farmers were benefited in many ways. When there was shortage of rain, cloud seeding operation was also carried out by aircraft for making artificial rain. The state has made G.A.I.C as its nodal agency to carry out activities of Civil Aviation Department. This has been done so as to meet demand of higher office in efficient manner. In year 2002 the state felt that it was turn to have aviation as a separate department.

Hence, the Civil Aviation Department was formed to ensure the safety and security in accordance with international standards, providing efficient, cost-effective and orderly growth of air transport, developing world-class aviation infrastructure, contributing to growth of trade and tourism generating employment opportunities across the aviation value chain. In this regards, the Civil Aviation Department, Government of Gujarat has set-up a new company GUJSAIL, with a view to carry out all Civil Aviation policy related activities in Gujarat, which aims to garner public private partnership by setting up of MRO’s, starting up of intra-state air connectivity, to acquire land to create land bank and enter into an agreement with partners giving them single window clearance, creating new airstrips and helipads, establishing new fuel trading companies in order to reduce its burden on the operational costs, setting up of aviation training institutes, provide trained manpower for the fast-growing Civil Aviation sector, to encourage the use of heli-copters in the areas of heli-tourism, adventure sports, religious places, point to point heli-services to bypass the traffic congestion on the road connecting remote areas, also to establish one DGCA approved Helipad at each Taluka of the state, also it will address to the aviation needs in regards to the Disasters like flood relief, earth quake etc within the country and for the state as in particular.
