The Pilot of Extraordinary Ideas

Jehangir Ratanji Dadabhoy Tata, JRD to the world, remains an Indian business icon whose aura transcends business. He was a patron of art and culture, a philanthropist, and a man with a passion for flying.

Ever since JRD Tata learnt to fly, he never stopped. Soaring high to Destination Tomorrow with many first-ever concepts. Besides opening the skies for India as its first commercial pilot and airline chief, he remained a ceaseless explorer of new horizons. A pace-setter in social welfare, industrial harmony and technology. Even today, he flies with us in spirit as we rise to new heights of progress.

The legacy of JRD Tata lives on in myriad ways around each one of us.
