Working professionals and students who have completed their intermediate or perusing graduation are eligible to apply. The selection process would be completed by this month and classes would commence from December 1, a release stated.
The academy was set up in 2009 in collaboration with IATA, Airport Council International, International Civil Aviation Organisation and the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).
