Pawan Hans, one of India's leading helicopter companies, has been given 'No Objection Certificate'

New Delhi, May 25: Pawan Hans, one of India's leading helicopter companies, has been given 'No Objection Certificate' (NOC) to operate as scheduled operator in India.

The company will now join the club of scheduled airlines such as Indian Airlines and Air India. The company is also exploring possibilities of venturing into fixed wing operations.

The company was incorporated in 1985 with the objective of providing helicopter services to the petroleum sector, linking inaccessible areas of the country and operating charters for promotion of tourism.

Since inception, the company has operated a number of helicopters and offered a wide range of services through its fleet of 34 helicopters consisting of Bell 206L4, Bell 407, Dauphin SA 365N, Dauphin AS 365N3 and Mi-172.

In addition, Pawan Hans is also acquiring two new Dauphin N3 helicopters and delivery of these helicopters would be in September-October.

Pawan Hans is a leader in providing offshore helicopter support in India. Its helicopters operate for Oil and Natural Gas Corporation Ltd. (ONGC) at Bombay High and Hardy Exploration at Chennai. Public Sector Units (PSUs) such as GAIL use them for pipeline surveillance.

The company also has a strong presence in the North East. Its helicopters are deployed in the States of Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, Sikkim and Tripura. Regular passenger services are being run under the aegis of these State Governments.

The company also provides helicopters to Andaman and Nicobar and Lakshadweep islands for inter-island helicopter services.

When i started my blog on Sikkim way back in 2007, i had it clear on my mind that this blog shall help people look out for knowledge on Sikkim. I always wanted a knowledge house about Sikkim, its past, present and future. I do not know over the years how much did i succeed but my determination to let other understand my Sikkim is always giving me a push. with regards Shital Pradhan (himalayanreview@gmail.com)
