  • According to the draft NASP, an Air Sports Federation of India (ASFI) will be constituted as the apex regulating body.
  • If an air sports association fails to enforce safety rules, the ASFI may take action against it.

Why in News?

Given India’s enormous geographical breadth, diverse topography, and favorable meteorological conditions, the Ministry of Civil Aviation has produced a draft National Air Sports Policy (NASP) to maximize the country’s potential for air sports.


Sports included in NASP 2022

Aerobatics, aeromodelling, ballooning, drones, gliding, hang gliding, paragliding, and skydiving are all included in the draft NASP 2022.

ASFI

According to the draft NASP, an Air Sports Federation of India (ASFI) will be constituted as the apex regulating body.
The day-to-day operations will be handled by the associations for each air sport.
The Paragliding Association of India, for example, will oversee sports under its jurisdiction.


What is in the policy?

According to the proposed policy, air sports associations are responsible to ASFI for regulatory monitoring as well as guaranteeing safe, affordable, accessible, pleasurable, and sustainable conduct of their respective air sport.


According to ASFI, India would be represented at the Fédération Aéronautique Internationale (FAI) and other international venues connected to air sports. The FAI is the world’s regulating body for air sports, with headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

According to the proposed NASP, all competitions in India will be run according to the FAI’s criteria.

Global Air Sporting Competitions

The new effort, according to the ministry, will let Indians participate in and succeed in global air sporting competitions. Air sports will be encouraged to be included in the curriculum of schools, colleges, and institutions, according to the report.


According to the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyaan, domestic design, development, and manufacturing of air sports equipment will be encouraged.
If an air sports association fails to enforce safety rules, the ASFI may take action against it, including financial penalties, suspension, or removal, according to the report.
