Swiss Aircraft for Chennai’s IAF Station

  • The first fleet of the Swiss made flight training aircraft Pilatus PC-7 is expected to arrive at the Tambaram Indian Air-Force station within two months.
  • The aircrafts, which have propeller type engines, are already in operation at the Dundigal training station near Hyderabad for the past one year.
  • Pilatus has already installed a flight simulator inside the sprawling campus, where newly inducted pilots are given training under various conditions like hail, rain or even in conditions where the aircraft is just about to crash.
  • The simulator, which looks like a video-game but is only more real, recreates the actual flying conditions as well as the terrain around the Tambaram air-force base almost exactly.
