Residents are ready to take advantage of air services; perspective pilot training facilities

Mandsaur (Madhya Pradesh): The people of Mandsaur will soon benefit from an airstrip. The Indian government has authorized Global Connectivity Private Limited to establish flying clubs and operate aircraft.

MPP Yashpal Singh Sisodia inspected the airstrip on Tuesday.

He said a perimeter wall had been built at a cost of around Rs 4 crore around the airstrip built on a 2.5 km runway.

The central government and the state government have authorized Global Connectivity Private Limited to set up pilot training centers and launch airlines, he added.

Three small charter planes have arrived from Tamil Nadu which will be available for pilot training.

Five more planes are soon arriving from Uttarakhand. The company will provide air taxis and air ambulances.

Sisodia also said that Mandsaur has the largest airstrip between Indore and Udaipur.

If the conditions are favorable and the government allows the company to run regular services to Indore and Udaipur, it will take 30/40 minutes to get to Indore and Udaipur.

Sisodia further said that there would be a pilot training center at Mandsaur airstrip to help the youngsters.

The company has a 30-year contract.

Sisodia further stated that since a medical college is also under construction and a four-lane road is under construction, the airstrip will benefit people.

Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan officially opened the airstrip on January 17, 2017.

On this occasion, the technical manager of Global Connectivity Private Limited, Satpal Singh informed Sisodia about flying clubs and airlines.
