AOPA India Elects New President
At their recent Board Meeting, AOPA India has unanimously elected Col (Retd) Rampal Suhag as the President of the Association. In his first message to the membership, Col Suhag set the course for the direction of the Association. "After a long spell of silence on the General Aviation Front, I take this opportunity to re – welcome you all. The pace of things had slowed down due to various reasons and let's not dwell on them anymore.
We are charged up again and with rejuvenated strength taking up the mantle of GA Community to match the vision of our pioneer Mr. Ramesh Rao.
As a homage to Mr. Ramesh Rao, we pledge today to take things further more energetically and let the era of HAPPY FLYING begin.
We do have a vibrant General Aviation community which needs to be brought under one banner, today every single owner, pilot or pioneer is fighting a lonely battle against odds.
After numerous discussions and a lot of support from all of you, I took up the challenge. Since then, I have gotten in touch with DGCA and the Ministry on a weekly basis and I admit there is a change, a very positive and proactive change in the way the Governmental Agencies are viewing things today.
I want to take this forward diligently. I need support of each and every member. Starting very humbly, I have decided that I will float a request or seek your suggestion on a weekly basis, please come forward and support the cause." Courtesy of AOPA India website www.aopa.in
