Flying instruments are an important part of the Indian instrument flying handbooks, and a number of these handbooks will be taught at the Indian Instrument Flying Workshop (IIWF) from September 26-29 in the heart of the city of Kanpur.
The workshop is designed to provide an opportunity for students to gain a deeper understanding of Indian instrument design and flight by using the instruments flown by the IAF in the past, along with practical demonstrations of the instruments and flight systems used by the pilots.
The IIWF will be an opportunity to have a deep understanding of the craft, and its use in military operations, and in various other fields.
It is a fitting tribute to the history of the IFI that a workshop of such magnitude and significance will be organised by a country which, in the last two decades, has had to make great sacrifices to achieve the highest standards of safety, security and performance in air combat.
The IFI has long been a key component of the Air Force’s mission to train the nation’s airmen in flying, and to achieve operational effectiveness, to meet the emerging needs of modern warfare.
The workshops will be divided into two parts.
The first is a four-day workshop for those with the appropriate background to participate in the technical aspects of the workshop.
The second part will be the flight-related workshops, with the IF flying a number that are suitable for pilots of aircraft of all types.
This will be a unique opportunity for those interested in flying to learn the basics of the art of flying, from instrument to instrument.
The workshop is organised by the Indian Institute of Aviation, and will be held at a venue in Kanpur’s airport.
A number of aviation-related events are planned in Kanpoli.
The IIWF has been organised under the auspices of the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) and is an independent organisation that is working towards improving the air safety of the country through aeronautical and civil engineering research, training, and standards.
The IAF has announced the first of its two workshops, which will be at the aircraft-related workshop on September 26, as a celebration of the centenary of the India-Pakistan War.
The event is also an opportunity of recognition for the IFE and its members who have been instrumental in bringing about significant advancements in air-to-air combat capabilities, especially in the use of air-launched missiles, which have been crucial in the war.
The second of the two workshops will take place at the Aircraft Engineering and Technology Workshop on September 27.
This is a three-day programme of practical demonstrations on aircraft, flight controls, flight instruments, and control systems, and on aircraft-powered systems.
