Pune, Nov 3 (UNI) India's first Rs 60 lakh state-of-the-art mobile flight simulator was launched at the Jeet Aerospace Foundation in Gorhe Budruk near Sinhgad Road here today.
Abhijit Air Safety Foundation (AASF) Chairperson Kavita Gadgil and her husband, Retired Wing Commander Anil Gadgil, who is also a pilot, have started the foundation in memory of their son Flt Lt Abhijit Gadgil, who lost his life in a MIG fighter plane crash at Suratgarh in Rajasthan six years ago.
Flight simulation is an important training tool right from the basic to the advanced and complex forms of flight training. The flight simulator has been mounted on wheels so that it can reach for those areas and people where, there is no exposure to such flight training.
Admissions to the course will begin on November 7 and the course will start from December 30.
