“This is a Pilot Training facility whose Alumni numbering in Hundreds are either providing services to prestigious Airlines in India and Foreign lands or have retired. The homecoming is the maiden programme of its nature and endeavours shall be made to conduct similar Get-Togethers in future. Besides, a special fund will be set up to serve as a medium for assisting education, health, etc of this institution’s employees and their kin,” Mr Sarkari – who compered the proceedings – said.
Top officials of various Airlines were among those present.
At the event’s commencement, a brief silence was observed as a mark of respect to the Central Reserve Police Force personnel martyred in Thursday’s dastardly terror assault in Jammu and Kashmir’s Pulwama District.
MP Flying Club has earned Glory: Diggy Raja
Bhopal, Feb 17 Rajya Sabha Member and erstwhile Chief Minister of MP Digvijaya Singh has averred that Pilots of the Madhya Pradesh Flying Club – which is in existence for more than seven decades – are bringing name and fame in India and abroad not only for themselves but also for the fellowship.
“This fraternity has elevated itself to take on the form of an institution,” the Congress leader said late Saturday in the state capital while addressing the association’s Reunion 2019 that witnessed attendance by in excess of 100 aviators and their relatives from within the country and overseas.
Mr Singh honoured both high-ranking and young Flyers for their praiseworthy services.
“Senior Member Farooq Sarkari has carved a niche for himself and made a crucial contribution vis-a-vis promoting the circle. I hope that in the days to come the pilots emerging from this league shall perform even better to bring laurels for the state and the country,” he said.
