MEL ! Unfortunately it seems like we don’t have any shops out here for aviation enthusiasts. I don’t know about the northern side but there aren’t any in the South. I also tried searching for it long time ago.

George

It would have been great if some foreign shops had plans to start up a branch in India. No matter even if the price tag for the products is in the international range itself. At least we can save the massive cost that we have to spend on shipping when we buying stuffs from abroad. But I really doubt if their would be high dements for aviation products even if companies introduced some shops here. But at least for our satisfaction if there was a small store somewhere with some basic Aviation related products like Scanners, Charts, Aviation Mag’s, DVD’s, Calendars, etc… then it would have been great.

That is true. You never know how the condition of the stuff will be until you receive it. If one gets it alright he's probably lucky. I have had experience receiving stuffs sent from abroad in terrible condition even missed parcels when sent unregistered. Or else we have to go for some high quality service like DHL or something like that but that can be expensive for us. Since most of these Aviation related products comes from the US and Europe and we are quite far from them the shipping charges for such good parcel services for covering this much distance are quite expensive. The shipping charges can even equal the cost of the product sometimes,when we buy some cheap products  Smile

Karan69-This has happened to you me as well as many others who tried buying stuffs related with aviation from abroad. We guys have wasted a lot of money for insurance and postage.

MEL- I think our nearest aviation stores are in the Middle Eastern Sector. I have heard that World Air Routes and some other Aviation shops have outlets in the Saudi and some other nearby places.

It makes more sense to go & pick an item from these Airplane shops personally rather than hoping it would arrive vide post.

MEL...

Depends what you mean by Airplane shops. If you are looking at every kind of aviation merchandise then sorry, there are none. Certified and Final.

But if you are looking for bookshops with plenty of Aviation stuff, there's one in DEL. Its called the English Book Store and is located in Connaught Place. The selection is very poor but it does have an aviation section mostly with technical stuff. They also keep some poorly crafted airplane models.

If you are looking for airplane models etc., you can get Revell and AirFix type models of various scales at Hobby Centre (Again Connaught Place/DEL and close to the English Book Store). For aeromodelling you can try Hobby Centre (Russel Street, CCU). If you want to see trash dished out as IAF souvenirs, try the Air Force Museum at Palam. Be warned, Mirages look like Jaguars look like MiG-21s look like Sukhois and none actually look like a real plane.

Vimanav....Yup Im looking for the 'Pilot shop' type.
The English book store in Delhi & Sterling Book house in mumbai are good for Aviation related books.
Its a pity that Aviation has not spread in India the way it has in other places.Hopefully some Foreign shops open up branches in Cities in India in Future.
