    1. i tot india has its own training facility for naval airplane launch rite? in fact the can train on the current acc in service.

    2. i tot USA uses CATAPULT take off and arrested landing. The new carriers we r buying are ramp take off, arrested landing. so whats the point of doind CATAPULT training? Short/ramp tae off drills can be done, as i say above, in our current carrier

    My God Shiv..
    India Today is showing ex service officers as Terrorist in MP and linking them with BJP..

    Aims…and objectives…

    Immidiate >.scuttle Gom postive decion..

    Bring pressure on Ex service men..
    Malign ex service men and Armed Forces amongst people..Intelligensia..

    Force BJP on defensive…No ex servicemen movement and sopport to servicemen…

    Tell Armed Forces they are the bosses.. demoralise them..

    Demoralise Armed Forces and their Chiefs to submissions..

    Now. Dangers… if ex servicemen really turn out to be terrorists and used RDX and explosives to make the bomb as IPS is claiming in defamtion ..

    What will happen..

    IAS and IPS will not survive even for a week…

    They are palying with fire…they have forgotten Charles de Gaulle and France ..and ex servicemen…

    That is Dangerious… That is really dangerious…India Today is the front runner in the Camapign…

    The babus seem to have surely launched a tirade against the services. Now the print chaps seem to be going nuts over the Sahayak thing in that report which seems to have been leaked by the babus only, forgetting that the bureaucrats, the IPS chaps and everyone out there keeps sahayaks, and in fact more than the faujis, which no one seems to notice.

    Why dont you defence correspondents highlight these things, instead of writing just about one sided things.

    hey shiv, u have not mentioned about training in airforce academy in hyderbad.

    also most of these pilots are sitting idle after training as the Mig 29 have not arrived.They are getting married and stuff like that.

    Senior pilots have alredy trained on the IAF MiG 29s and infact one of them crashed at Ambala.

    there were bird hits also, and engine problems kept nagging.
    The navy should never buy the Goshawk, else they would undergo the same experience as that of the IAF with the hawks, the next fighter batch will have only 50% of the required strength. many of the new hawks are not airworthy. why doesnt the medi critise the non russians??

    ofcourse, once these guys return from US, they r headed to russia for training on Mig-29Ks..my brother is one among them….he's in D.C. now…

    India has its own facility for ski-launch training at a naval base in kerala…but that's only for practising take-offs & touchdowns from a dummy platform…landing on a moving ship, against headwing requires considerable skill…few batches of pilots are at present undergoing training there b4 Vikramaditya arrives….

    as regards to the reason for US based training,its for the indgenious ADS/IAC….the second version of this carrier is going to have catapult launch facility.

    Thus began??!!

    How do you think the Sea Hawk and the Alize stopped on the aircraft carriers?
