Practice, and only Practice will make you perfect




An Air Fest will be held at Shillong on 20-21 Oct 2012, Highlights are:-

(a)  RC Events like, 3D Aeros, Heli flying, Flower Drop Banner Tow, Toffee Drop, Pattern Aeros, Quads, FPV (Live Telecast), Mock Air Combat etc etc

(b)  Akash Ganga Sky Diving team will perform aerial acrobatics

(c)  Paraglider

(d)  Micro Light Flying

(e)  Flypast by Fighters

(f)  Slithering by Commandos


all aero modellors who want to participate could let me know, (a) Arrival plans (b) Fuel and other Consumables requirement (c) Number and type of aeroplane they will bring along (d) events they would like to perform

This event is to promote aviation and IAF, it is not a competition, though if you want to look at it monetarily, in terms of stay and food one could benefit more than the prize money that some of the events offer.

Looking forward to seeing some of you

Thanks VC off to the field ! One corrupt guy and see what havoc he can do being in the system.

 verbatim by Zonuna

" It happened to us today (19,10.2012) at Lengpui Airport. Six members from Mizoram Aeromodellers Association were on their way to attend a ďShillong Air FestĒ hosted by Indian Air Force Eastern Command at Meghalaya Shillong, with 7nos of Rc plane all .46 & .60 size.
As they booked their luggage on an AIR INDIA (Domestic) counter they notice that their 7 nos. of Model Airplane altogether weight only 19kgs plus with other luggages 60Kgs total, then a Boarding Pass was issued.
Then came an AI airport manager whose name S.LAKRA , who stopped the booking saying that the RC Plane were not of proper packing and that he cannot he cannot take the risk in case of damage and then delaying them till all the other passengers where in the security hold area.
He asked them to put in writings that any damages that might happen would be at their own risk and that AI will not take any responsible, so they accepted this happily and do as he told.
By this time, all the other passengers were boarded the plane except six of them, meanwhile the Manager told his men to measure the RC Planes with a one ft. Ruler (a school foot rule) the length and the width, then he calculated and start saying that these RC plane were a COMMERCIAL ITEM and that he need to booked the Planes NOT by its WEIGHT but by its VOLUMATRIC weight, so after calculating what he called a VOLUMATRIC WEIGHT he said that they should give him Rs. 29000/- otherwise they cannot board the plane. Refusing the man, he let the plane took off without them, and further he said that their tickets should be cancelled by NO-SHOW method.
These pictures were the rc plane which he refuse to loadÖ."

Not to take away from your ordeal but were these models ultimately packed in cartons? They would NEVER have survived the journey, otherwise.

This is so frustrating......................one anachronistic, hard nosed, bureaucratic, pompous, self righteous, indignant official who is out to prove his power with a foot scale is enough to dash the hopes of a team. Shame, this is INDIA.

Thank you all, and thank you Rcpilotacro, after a long fight today the AI has given us a Full refund for our flight, First, they tried to force us to board a Guwahati flight by giving them an additions of Rs. 1200/- per ticket (re-schedule charge) (whats the use ? we are already late for The Fest !!)

Anyway we are to release a "Press Release" against the AI Manager plus we will make sure he goes to the court, We took this matter very serious and we will not call a quit.

Like Rcpilotacro said "one corrupt guy " spoil our once in a lifetime GOLDEN opportunity, there is a scar in our heart that will never go away.

Its quite a pity. Had it been any other airlines they would have talked some sense. When there are seven people travelling i think that much of luggage can be carried. Even if he s asking for extra it should be some reasanoble amount. Whopping 29000?. Becasue of this kind of service Air India always runs in losses. They should learn from other private airlines?. But why will they the govt keeps bailing them out every time being a govt airlines. Gusty sir i could not make it to the airshow but made it to the flypast. How was the flypast? nd the airshow. Awaiting pics.

This was published in today's Telegraph. One of these birds was being piloted by Sravan, I guess. Gusty I'm sure that you have  requested the newspapers to carry a detailed article. Let us know once that appears.

Congrats again!

Report in Today newspaper and my Addiction X

"IAF organises Air Festival 2012
 
From a Correspondent

SHILLONG, Oct 20: The Indian Air Force (IAF) on Saturday organised the ďAir Festival- 2012Ē at the Advanced Landing Ground (ALG), Headquarters Eastern Air Command (HQ EAC), Upper Shillong, on Saturday.

Air Marshal RG Burli, Vayu Sena Medal, Senior Air Staff Officer, Headquarters Eastern Air Command (HQ EAC), inaugurated the festival.

The Air Force, the Army, the Assam Rifles personnel and their families, thousands of children, youths, men and women of Shillong and neighbouring areas thronged the ALG to witness the festival.

The festival began with the fly past of SU-30, frontline fighter aircraft of the IAF.

The aircraft flew in VIC formation led by Wing Commander, PA Shah. ĎSky Divingí demonstration was carried out by ĎAir Devilsí, a renowned sky diving team of IAF.

The sky diving team consisted of six members led by Squadron Leader TK Choudhury.

A team of 14 commandos of Special Forces of Indian Air Force ĎGARUDí performed slithering operations. The team was led by squadron leader NK Pal.

Group Captain MJ Augustine and his team kept the audience spell bound by a scintillating aero modeling demonstration. Remote controlled aircrafts were flown to entertain the spectators. Air Force Band played beautiful tunes throughout the day and entertained the audience.

A publicity stall was set up by Headquarters Eastern Air Command and Airmen Selection Centre, Guwahati to create awareness amongst the youths of Shillong and neighbouring areas. All the relevant information pertaining to recruitment and carrier opportunities available in IAF was provided in the stall.

The ďAir FestivalĒ was organised to create awareness about Air Force amongst youths and general public of the northeast region and to motivate the youths to consider the IAF as a prospective profession in future.

The Air Fest also showcased a spirit of adventure amongst air warriors and their families with much enthusiasm and gaiety.

Closer Look at the Addy X, It was quite windy so couldn't do as desired, for civilian population, simple take off and landing is good enough for good round of applause

we had food, water on the house for all, Memento presentation where all the participants were given a Wapiti Repelica and we had a good party in the afternoon,

Sandy's Airborne video on a Skywalker and his ground station was superb. Mock Combat left people aghast, 50 CY, made specifically for the occasion, rose to it, all in all, was a great day and truly deserved a Johnny Walker Wink

Thank You watching, pics from the official Camera Person to follow  Grin

I shall get well soon, but this event won't return for another year. I take solace in the assumption that I shall be a better flyer then and then shall be able to contribute more to this wonderful event.

Thanks for the heads up... meant for the 2013 version...
 Whoever's in Shillong, please PM me. I have my late '70s and 1980's-vintage analog (jittery) Futaba RC gear in Nongrim Hills gathering dust. Need them to fly. The Tx is rock solid with appropriate crystals.

Are you serious sir? or are you joking?
If that is just a part of your hangar your hangar sure is quite huge

This year it was without us, Sandy & I. i believe one aeromodellor was flown in from hinterland, he took off and crashed just missing the crowd, effects of high altitude and low speed at take off i guess. there went a 50 CC high winger. Su-30 and Helicopters and Akash Ganga team enthralled the public. here is the news snippet

i agree VC, Varsha & I, we miss shillong so very much, there was not a day that went by without me flying. here it has been like only 3 days in 4months. there was not a sunday,most of the times even weekdays sandy and i haven't built anything, flown something or discussed on possibilities, brainsroming. "Those were the days my love". i am all schmaltzed up, as we speak

I came to know two days after. My mistake should have taken initiative after hearing rehearsal fly past of SU - 30.


you should have sandy, i heard the imported stuff was "all gas and no kick", he even forbade the real ones from performing, can you believe that, eventually ending up in a crash
