Balangir: The government has granted a no objection certificate (NOC) for setting up a flying institute at the Tusra airstrip in Balangir, reports said.
The NOC, accorded for a period of three years, was issued Tuesday by the general administration and public grievance department to the Bhubaneswar-based Government Aviation Training Institute (GATI), which has been imparting flying training in the state capital.
Balangir MP Kalikesh Narayan Singh Deo took to Twitter to thank Chief Minister (CM) Naveen Patnaik for granting NOC to the flying institute.
The government has asked GATI to use the airstrip only for training. It must schedule flying sessions in such a manner that there is no overlapping with the landing and take-off schedules of other aircraft permitted by the directorate of aviation.
