Career Opportunities

Aeronautical Engineering is the science associated with the study, design, and production of flight-capable machinery or aircraft operating techniques. It is the study of the design and operations of an aircraft that involves practical and theoretical understanding of materials, assembling parts, testing, and maintenance of aircraft. An Aeronautical Engineer's primary job is to design aircraft and thrust systems, but there can be more responsibilities added to the profile with time. An Aeronautical Engineer may get opportunities in the Aviation industry, defence, and civil aviation department. The job may bring lucrative packages, but it also might be a very responsible and demanding job. It is an important branch of engineering that has helped mankind to master the world above the skies.

The team was mentored by Mr.G.Dinesh Kumar, Assistant Professor, School of Aeronautical Sciences, HITS.


JHATAYU is a crowd funded, student start-up company registered in MSME through HTBI & HEIC, HITS. JHATAYU Flying Bike as a design concept was awarded by SAE INDIA at the International Two Wheeler Conference at Bangalore on 5 August 2017 by Mr. Javaji Munirathinam, SAE INDIA Aerospace Board Chairman and Mr. C. Prakash, Training & Development Specialist, Product Development Division Ashok Leyland, India. The Institute of Aeronautics Astronautics and Aviation had the privilege of Dr. Micheale Barratt, Astronaut, NASA, USA award the “Best Innovation” title to JHATAYU and the “Best International Mentor” to its mentor cum supervisor Mr. C. S. Karunakaran at IIT Guwahati on 1 September 2018. JHATAYU Flying Bike was formed by a team of 33 under graduate students under the mentorship of Mr. C. S. Karunakaran, Assistant Professor, School of Aeronautical Sciences, HITS. This ingenious start-up is now touted as Asia’s first flying two- wheeler bike prototype.

The start-up had built an unmanned version of its flying vehicle prototype and successfully flight tested on 27 th October 2018 at HITS. The start-up has applied for its patent and is planning to raise funds for its manned version through industry partnership. The India Book of Records recognized this achievement and conferred “India’s First Two Wheeler Bike” title on JHATAYU. The start-up is planning to apply for Asian certifications to stake their claim for being the Asia’s First Flying Two Wheeler Bike.
