Additional Notes

Remarks: Flight Safety Note added: 0000-00-00
ON 26 Mar 2009, Wg Cdr Ajay Koul (19960-L) F(P) was authorized to fly a bird reccee and handling sortie on a microlight aircraft. During the sortie, the pilot experienced increasing engine vibrations at 60 Kts. He reduced throttle and commenced a left turn towards base. The engine vibrations reduced to 2000 RPM. After ensuring engine parameters within limits, he smoothly opened power to 3500 RPM. At this stage, there was a mild bang and engine RPM dropped to zero. He immediately selected a force landing field and landed the aircraft safely on a rocky terrain with minimal damage to the aircraft. He immediately alerted the Air Traffic Services and guided the search and rescue helicopter to the accident site. Wg Cdr A Koul displayed a keen sense of observation, exceptional flying skills in emergency and recovered the aircraft with minimum damage.
