Do you think Indian ATC is doing enough to reduce RT congestion in the skies ?
From The Editor's Desk - Twenty Fifth Issue, December 2011

Hi guys! It is once again December , the time to rejoice about the miles we have flown in all these years.Time also to introspect and review the distances we flew in 2011.And plan for the future.

For the first time Indian Aviation has decided to celebrate the old.The vintage aircraft.They ruled the skies when flying had just taken off. But in this supersonic era of military aviation, the Indian Air Force is trying to get some of its old birds back in air.
Vintage flying may be popular abroad, but for India, it is a new beginning. The IAF has one of the largest collections of vintage aircraft in the world.
Two of these aircraft, the Tiger Moth - a bi-plane basic trainer of the 1940s - and Harvard, an advanced trainer used in the Fifties and Sixties, are being restored in the UK for the IAF. The latest on the project is that the two aircraft should become air worthy by April or May, as per IAF spokesperson Wing Commander Gerard Galway .
It might sound simple but getting these birds off the ground again was a gigantic task considering that it hadn't been attempted in India earlier.
In 2011 Indian Aviation celebrates its 100th birthday.With economy growing at the rate of more than 7%,domestic air travel on a growth curve, our PPP Airports voted as best Airports by the users,there is much to rejoice.
According to the latest report of Centre for Asia Pacific Aviation (CAPA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA), India was the fastest growing domestic market in the world in September 2011 with 18.4 per cent year-on-year growth, exceeding the growth rate in China (9.7%) and Brazil (7.5%) in the same month. Also, it is placed as the ninth biggest market in the world.
If it is to maintain its pace, it requires the resources.Human and infrastructure.
India has more than 450 airports and airstrips. Of these, 16 are designated international airports. With the liberalisation of the Indian aviation sector, the industry in India has undergone a rapid transformation. Private airlines account for around 75 per cent share of the domestic aviation market. In the past two years, more than 150 aircraft have been added to the fleet of Indian carriers and more than 200 aircraft are likely to be inducted over the next year.
Let us plan our liberalisation of the aviation sector to usher in maximum benefit to the users and our country.Let us plan well,check what we do and act well on the feedback.With public- private participation WE shall do it.
Let us fly together to a NEW,EXCITING horizon. Wishing you all success and celebrations for the brand New Year ahead !!!!
