Nagpur Flying Club to restart by mid-Feb

Nagpur: One of the country's oldest flying clubs is ready for take off again after a two month hiatus, as it has fulfilled all criteria set by the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). Nagpur Flying Club (NFC) is hoping that by second week of February all the requisite persmissions, which it says are 'mere formalities', will be in place for it to resume operations. NFC was shut down on Nov 23 because it did not have the requisite staff but now with the intervention of Divisional Commissioner Anoop Kumar, it has undergone a complete makeover with all issues sorted out.
Kumar seemed determined to turn things around at NFC when it was dogged with multiple issues for the last couple of years. Kumar said, "Management, finance and engineering department hiring has been completed and we now have a proper system in place. Earlier just the chairman (post held by Divisional Commissioner) and managing director would make the decisions but now there's ample experienced staff at various levels to ensure things are run more efficiently. We have also constructed 13 new rooms, in compliance with official criteria, and there will be a library also for students to study."
