He has a bachelor’s degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the prestigious Moscow Aviation Institute, Moscow, Russian Federation (Only institute of its kind in entire Europe & Asia).

Aviakul Private Limited [Aviakul] has been established by young Aviation Professionals and Business Leaders with years of market experience, with the sole agenda of pioneering the transformation to bring Self-reliance in Indian Aviation Ecosystem. Aviakul translates to “Home of Aviation,” and strives to lead the exceptional developments in the industry, absolutely justifying its name. The Word Aviakul stems from the amalgamation of two classic Languages. Avia, a Latin word which means Flight or To Fly and Kul, a Sanskrit word which means Home, Family or Community. Hence its motto, the Home of Aviation. The organization works towards its goals with a firm belief that the intended transformation could be possible through three key directions – Personnel, Network, and Indigenous Development.
Unfortunately, Aviation in India is still not within common man’s reach. Though we are born to fly, we merely glare at the Sky. Making people aware of Aviation and taking the knowledge down to the grass- root level is a lifelong mission for Team Aviakul. Only when as a society, as a community, we are conscious about Aviation, we will be able to make wonderful strides in that field. With this noble mission in mind, Aviakul organizes several outreach activities including Events, Conferences, Webinars, Training Workshops, thus enabling the reach of knowledge to the grass-root level of our nation. Aviakul events were supported by National Institute of Technology Delhi (NITD), MRO Association of India, Metamorphes Foundation,
Aviation World Magazine, Aeronautical Society of India (Mumbai), Indian Women Pilots’ Association, Bridge Bharat, The Delhi Flying Club, and other notable organizations. Aviakul outreach has a footfall of a huge number of professionals in both Physical and Online mode, comprising of Industry Experts, Defence veterans, Diplomats, Bureaucrats, Aviation Professionals, Aviation Enthusiasts, Faculty and Students from Science and Technology background.
Aviakul is the Official Training Partner of The Delhi Flying Club (DFC) – est. 1928 (originally established in 1901 as a flying club by the order of Viceroy of India then). Aviakul is proud to say that it has expertise in Pilot Training Programs, Aviation Ground Classes, Cabin Crew training, Drone (Remote Pilot) training and Manufacturing, Aviation Certification courses and Aviation outreach programs at ground levels.
