‘Nagpur is future of civil aviation’

Chairman Aeronautical Society of India (city chapter) air marshal RKS Shera has said that Nagpur is the future of civil aviation.
"The kind of cargo hub being planned at Mihan, if that becomes a reality then this town will start producing components for one of the military aircraft in coming time. When that happens, Nagpur should ideally be the place to prepare engineers with aeronautics background. At present, the course runs only at Priyadarshini College of Engineering and the department concerned needs to be expanded," said Shera, who was the chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of the three-day Orange City Science Fair which started on Thursday at Raman Science Centre.
The centre's project co-ordinator N Ramdas Iyer and vice-chancellor of Panjabrao Deshmukh Agriculture University Sharad Nimbalkar were also present on the occasion. As many as 130 students of 54 schools participated in the event. Altogether 20 teachers, with their teaching aids, also took part.
Encouraging the kids, Shera said, "The field of aviation is extremely fascinating. It feels good to manufacture planes, to fly them and maintain them. I encourage you all to look ahead at it as a carrier option."
