    @Ramkumar patne, I assume you've just completed your studies so I doubt that you would have much cash with you at this stage of life. Starting a simple aircraft manufacturing business would need an immediate injection of at least $500m.

  • Nimod K.A. said on October 28, 2014
    I have a dream of starting an aircraft manufacturing company which will manufacture passenger aircrafts. I have no money with me, but if there are people ready to invest, I am sure I can quit my job and work on this mission. Currently 10 countries have aircraft manufacturing companies which manufacture passenger aircraft and sadly India is not among them. Also linked with 'Make in India' move, I invite people who can support me in this...
  • varun jayavelu said on February 27, 2015
    @nimod i am interested in your idea of manufacturing passenger aircraft but initially manufacturing paramotors and trikes would be cheaper.

  • Aman Sharma beginner adviser said on December 29, 2016
    If someone is really interested,Best way to open a manufacturing unit is to take first step by understanding the local rules & regulation, then opening a experimental aircraft manufacturing unit, (Indian Refer X-AIR, RAJ HAMSA ,Mahindra , HAL Indian aircraft manufacturer) (World Refer Justaircraft, Zilin, Pipistril, Sherpa aircrafts) this is a market which is easy (as compared to Passenger aircrafts) and takes less investment. You dont need $500M or $10M to open a microlight/Experimental aircraft company in India.

    Study the different microlight aircraft models worldwide, prepare a blueprint (Basic business model), Design of your aircraft, tie-up/Start your own manufacturing facility, Marketing your final aircraft will do a lot more than you think. Start Small (In a garage) for low costs in a small city as land is cheaper, less disturbance, and for free hand to work and with basic mechanic and small engines.

    Just saying:- You can never became a Boeing or Airbus, so don't copy them, with nothing in your hands, But you can became a new aircraft manufacturing Giant better then Boeing or Airbus, If you approach is right and will definitely take's time.

    I am not a Aviation Bill gates, but have an experience in the industry, and ideas work more than people itself. || Aircraft Industry Adviser

    I've been trying to get $10 mill funding for a startup here in the U.S., preferably the majority ($7-8 mil) and the rest from banks ($2-3 mil). We currently have 4 prototypes built that fly, and are certified by the F.A.A. We have almost everything needed to start, except the capital to start. Any help would be appreciated.
