Indira Gandhi Rashtriya Udaan Academy (IGRUA) will soon tie up with a
foreign institution to train pilots expeditiously to steer the burgeoning air
traffic.



Uttar Pradesh-based
IGRUA would enter into a contract with Canada-based firm - CAE to train pilots
and the proposal is awaiting the nod of the Union Cabinet, Civil Aviation
Secretary Ashok Chawla told reporters
here.



Once approved, it would
be a ten-year expertise contract with the CAE, which has promised to churn out
100 pilots per annum to begin with, and subsequently, the training capacity
would be enhanced to 200 pilots every year in three years' time at the
government-run flying school, he
said.



The CAE would bring in
full-flight simulators and flying training operations with them, he said. The
IGRUA presently trains only forty pilots a
year.



Inaugurating a pilot
training school here, Chawla stressed the need for pilot and engineering
training, saying qualified and skilled pilots are the need of the
hour.



"Government's open sky
policy has given an entirely new paradigm to civil aviation operations. I agree
that all stakeholders, including the government, cannot keep pace with the
developments", Chawla said, adding that the government was taking "reasonably
feverish" steps now to go into the demands of the
sector.



Chawla said a new
flying school would be opened in Maharashtra and an on-demand online testing
facility for aspiring pilots may also be introduced.


WTF! Evil or Very Mad What is this supposed to be, a joke?! The MOU was signed way back in the first half of this year, so why is it taking so long to get the approval of the Union Cabinet? Are these people sleeping?
