Purchase own helicopter, ACS asks state govt

Itanagar: The Arunachal Civil Society (ACS) has appealed to the state government to purchase new 28 and 8-seater helicopters.
In a representation to the Chief Minister, the ACS said that instead of hiring private helicopter, the state government needs a helicopter of its own for the benefit of citizens as well as the government.
Saying that the government is losing huge revenue while hiring private helicopter on lease or hire basis, the ACS claimed that people are also feeling unsafe while travelling by air in “old or second-hand” Pawan Hans or Skyone helicopters.
It requested the Chief Minister to take up the matter with the Union Civil Aviation Ministry for purchase of own helicopter to save revenue as well as benefit of the people.
