IAF to install direction finder in Arunachal


In the aftermath of a spate in chopper crashes in North East, the Indian Air Force (IAF) is going for an overhaul with it all set to install two automatic direction finder equipments at Tawang and Zero in Arunachal Pradesh.The equipment would be the first-of-its-kind in the North East.

This was informed by Captain Kunte, Station Commander, Mohanbari, while deliberating on ‘Issues affecting air maintenance by fixed and rotary wing in the North East at a seminar organised by College of Aeronautical Engineering’.

Captain Kunte, when asked, informed that the equipments are expected to be operational in another six months.

Besides, he also vouched for having automated weather monitoring and transmitting system in place to disseminate information to the pilots flying in difficult terrain.

“There should be a standard rule for civil and military traffic, which would help in improved flying,” Kunte said.
