Haryana Deputy Chief Minister Dushyant Chautala on Monday said that the state government is working on a scheme, in which the State youth, who are undergoing pilot training, will have to pay only half of the training cost or the course fee.
“Under this scheme, the government will bear half the fees. For this, talks are going on with various civil aviation companies. Two rounds of talks have also taken place at the state level. The state government aims to provide ample employment in this field by imparting training to the maximum number of pilots in the state,” said Chautala after holding a meeting with the officers concerned at Chaudhary Bansi Lal Airstrip in Bhiwani.
Chautala said that during the last three years, the present state government has worked to establish civil aviation as an industry on priority. About 350 youths are taking training in private and government Flying Training Organizations (FTOs) in the state. Of this, around 120 are being trained by the Flight Simulation Technique Centre (FSTC) and the rest by the Haryana Institute of Civil Aviation (HICA). The airstrips of Karnal, Pinjore and Bhiwani, Mahendragarh and Bachhod are being developed by the government.
