Unused airstrips to be turned into pilot academies

New Delhi: The government has set a target of turning unused Airport Authority of India (AAI)-controlled airstrips into pilot academies with an aim to meet the ever increasing requirement of such professionals. A three-member committee has been formed to work out a plan in this regard.

Sources in the Ministry of Civil Aviation said the idea was first mooted by Director General of Civil Aviation Arun Kumar, who is also an AAI board member. But industry experts felt the move would require certain measures to augment it and so a committee has been formed under former Air Force chief Fali H Major, an independent member of the AAI board.
