Subject: Grant of affiliation for opening of a new course in Bachelor of Science (Aircraft
Maintenance).

Sir,

Rajiv Gandhi Aviation Academy is an Aircraft Maintenance Training Institute approved by


Director General of Civil Aviation, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India, New Delhi
and running since 1997. It is one of the most premier AME training institute in India and we
have produced thousands successful aircraft maintenance engineers and they are serving to the
industry at different positions.

We intend to start a new course B.Sc (Aircraft Maintenance) in our institute. The institute
possesses the required infrastructure facilities as per norms of the Director General of Civil
Aviation, Ministry of Civil Aviation, Government of India, New Delhi. As per the latest
guidelines provided by DGCA to affiliate approved AME institute for above mentioned course,
we want to affiliate our institute for the above mentioned course to your esteemed university. You
are requested kindly grant affiliation to the above proposed institute to run the course B.Sc
(Aircraft Maintenance) for the session 2017.

Thanking you.

Yours faithfully,

Y. Prabhakar Reddy
Accountable Manager

effective communication has substantially enhanced.

The present course hopes to address some of these aspects through an interactive mode of teaching-

learning process and by focusing on various d i m e n s i o n s o f c o m m u n i c a t i o n s k i l l s . S o m e o f

and office environments, important reading skills as well as writing skills such as report writing, note- taking

etc.

While, to an extent, the art of communication is natural to all living beings, in today's world of

complexities, it has also acquired some elements of science. It is hoped that after studyi ng this

course, students will find a difference in their personal and professional interactions.
