To make operation of non-scheduled flights easier in the country’s airspace, Ministry of Civil Aviation extended the air defence clearance time for them on Monday. From now on, air defence clearance will be valid for three hours for such flights from their planned departure time. Till now, ADC window was valid only for 45 minutes.

In a series of tweets, the Ministry of Civil Aviation (MoCA) said “A significant milestone achieved! MoCA, Air Headquarters & AAI join hands to increase the window of the validity of Air Defence Clearance (ADC). The ADC is a permission required for all domestic non-scheduled operations.”

The ADC, which earlier used to be valid for 45 min from the planned departure time will now be valid for 3 hours. This will bring ease of operations for non-scheduled flight operators, including for medical evacuation flights (sic),” it added.
