The Aviation Safety Competition (ASC) was recently concluded on 30th January 2021. ASC is a competition aimed at generating interest in aviation and reaching out to students from schools, polytechnics, colleges and universities to build a strong aviation culture for our Next Generation of Aviation Professionals. This year marks the 5th iteration of the competition with the theme “Flying with Computers”.

This year, due to the pandemic, the final judging (and most of the competition) was held online. Finalists delivered their final presentations using all the resources they had, highlighting their findings and solutions with videos and well crafted presentations. 

After much deliberation, the following results have emerged:
