New Delhi: Under the UDAN scheme, the DGCA has amended the rules to promote seaplanes across the country. The rules have been simplified. Also, pilots flying seaplanes can obtain CPL from any institution that meets the rules from anywhere in the world. These amendments made by the DGCA in the new seaplane scheme can prove to be a big leap towards sustainable and safe seaplane operations. These important amendments streamline infrastructure processes, pilot training requirements and regulatory compliance. This opens the way for seaplane services to reach remote inaccessible areas.

What are the revised rules?

The regulatory framework for flying seaplanes, which was initially formulated in 2008, has been under review for a long time. The DGCA Working Group had recommended rationalising and amending the said regulatory framework, following which revised rules (CAR Section 3 Series C Part IX and CAR Section 7 Series B Part XVI) have been framed. The revised rules also include easier training requirements and simplified approval processes for seaplane operations. Pilots with a CPL can now fly seaplanes as a seaplane rated pilot by training at any ICAO-recognised training organisation across the world.

Additionally, new training opportunities for support roles have been established to enhance employment prospects at seaplane centers across the country.
With the amended provisions, seaplane operators can access streamlined processes and optimised infrastructure requirements to expand seaplane services across the country and reach the most remote parts of the country, thereby promoting inclusive and sustainable growth.
