Future of civil aviation bright in country despite setbacks: KTR

Hyderabad: IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao on Thursday asserted that the future of civil aviation in the country was bright despite temporary setbacks, and that investments in partnerships will hold the industry in good stead.

Inaugurating the 8-bay pilot training facility at the Flight Simulation Technique Centre (FSTC), a premier aviation training establishment offering high quality training endorsed by DGCA and EASA, Rama Rao said: “This facility is a great opportunity for Hyderabad and will result in a lot of business and training opportunities for the region.” Top officials from Ministry of Civil Aviation, DGCA and airline partners participate in the function. Three bays of the facility are already occupied by an A320neo, Bombardier Dash-8 and ATR72-600 simulator and with five simulators already positioned at the Gurugram facility, the total number of simulators with FSTC as on date are eight.
Stating that FSTC was one of the preferred training partners for various Indian and International airlines based out of South East Asia region, the Minister said the facility was the most advanced Full Flight Simulation training company in India today with training facilities in Gurugram and Hyderabad.

“The control and management of Gujarat Flying Club in 2018 helped us to mature and reach a stage where we have the capability to provide end-to-end high-quality training to the cadets. This includes imparting Commercial Pilot License (CPL) training followed by ab-initio type rating training on A320/B737/ATR 72-600 /Bombardier Dash-8 Q400 in a time bound and cost-effective manner,” he said.
