INDIAN AIRCRAFT: Flight Planning:
A lot of preparatory work has gone into flight planning. The route has to meet all guidelines of the FAI. In addition, several factors have been kept in mind for route selection:
- Aircraft Performance and Range
- Climate and local weather
- Possible political problem areas
- Terrain including legs over water and sparsely populated areas
- Optimum rationalization of rest days, maintenance halts and the need to cover distance as fast as possible
- Alternate airports, fuel reserves, best possible airway/off airway routes
- Fuel availability, customs and immigration, runway length and elevation
The highly experienced crew were sent to the aircraft manufacturer in Germany for conversion. Apart from this, they were exposed to the IFR route flying in Dornier 228. Prior to commencing the expedition, they would also do long-range and overseas flying in the CTSW within India.
The crew has been trained on first-line servicing and minor repairs on the aircraft in Germany. They have also undergone specialist training on the Rotax engine, with Dee Greaves India Ltd.
An expedition of this nature requires peak physical fitness. Both pilots have been following a carefully designed program of aerobic conditioning and strength training. The pilots have lost weight, which is an added bonus as a more useful load can be carried.
Air regulations and International aviation law:
Pilots have been exposed to international flying procedures in Germany. They have also been extremely busy refreshing basic aviation knowledge, which will prove extremely handy.
