Kavita Gadgil to start aviation institute

Pune: Mumbai-based Kavita Gadgil, who successfully launched a crusade demanding better safety standards in the IAF after her son, flight lieutenant Abhijit, died in a MiG-21 crash in 2001, has finalised an ambitious plan to start an aviation institute in Pune.
The IAF apologised to Gadgil in March 2005, acknowledging that her son could not be held guilty of "pilot error" for the MiG-21 crash, and that the accident could have been a result of technical failure.
Gadgil told TOI that the aviation institute will be inaugurated on April 30 near Sinhagad fort and will be equipped with a flight simulation facility.
