KOCHI (PTI): A MiG 29K Aircraft Training Simulator Facility was commissioned on Wednesday at the Naval Institute of Aeronautical Technology (NIAT), the largest aviation training establishment in the country.

The facility was commissioned by Vice Admiral Sunil Lanba, Flag Officer Commanding-in-Chief, Southern Naval Command, inside the naval base here at a function which was attended by Naval personnel and Russian specialists.

The simulator training facility, set up by the Indian Navy as part of the MiG 29K Aircraft contract, would provide a platform for smooth transition of air crew and maintenance personnel from training environment to actual maintenance and operation scenario, according to a Navy release.

"The personnel trained with this training facility would be adept in handling maintenance challenges/operational evolutions," it said.

The MiG 29K Simulator Training Facility has 'state-of-the-art' training stations for imparting real time training to air crew and technical personnel on all systems of the aircraft and associated maintenance requirements.

An urgent, emergent training requirement of the Navy post induction of INS Vikramaditya, which carries the fourth generation fighter aircraft MiG 29K onboard, is being addressed by this facility.

NIAT is the largest aviation training establishment in the country which undertakes training for 11 different types of aircraft operating in the Naval Air Arm and has stepped into its diamond jubilee year.
