Father-son duo fly in Trainer aircraft

Chennai: In an interesting instance, a father-son duo of the Indian Air Force recently flew in a trainer aircraft at the Tambaram base near here.

Air Marshal Arun Purushottam Garud, Air Officer Commanding in Chief, Southern Air Command, and his son Lieutenant Commander Abhijeet Garud, a naval aviator undergoing the Qualified Flying Instructor’s (QFI) course, flew in an IAF Chetak on March 30 from the Air Force Station, Tambaram, a defence release said here today.

“During the one hour that they flew together, the father taught his son the finer nuances of instructional flying as he himself is a Category A QFI (Qualified Flying Instructor) and has been a directing staff at FIS (Flying Instructors School) during his earlier tenure,” it said.
