- The government-owned Gujarat State Aviation Infrastructure Company Ltd (GUJSAIL) is tasked by the government to carry out the project.
- In the initial phase, this park will provide platform for educating people about the aviation activities. Apart from a theatre and an info—tech area, the park will also have space for conducting air shows and other aviation-related adventure sports. For professionals, the park will have a training complex with a flight simulator, aviation and aerospace management school, an aircrew training school, a helipad and a landing strip for smaller aircrafts.
