    DGCA Issues Guidelines for Aircraft Operators, Asks to Frame SOP for Commercial Flights; Details

    To ensure safe flight operations with no other destination, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has requested that all aircraft operators create Standard Operating Procedures (SOP) for commercial flight operations.
    According to the DGCA's February 20 circular, operators must create SOPs specific to each aerodrome, train flight operations staff on them, and have the SOPs certified by the DGCA in order to ensure safe flying procedures without a backup destination.
    "At least one runway should be available with an instrument approach procedure.
    The operator should have signed MoU with each aerodrome where they intend to undertake a flight with No Destination Alternate.
    All the personnel involved shall be trained prior to undertake flight operations with No Destination Alternate (NDA)," it read.
