Spring Dalean spends hours learning nuances of flight; gets wings to fly
Awarded flying license
AMRITSAR, NOVEMBER 4: In a development that coincides with the idealistic aim of Spring Dale Senior School of giving wings to its students to fly, a young Spring Dalean actually obtained the proverbial feathers when he joined the flight training classes at the Aviation Club. Kanav Arora, a student of class XII of Spring Dale Senior School spent at least 3.40 hours in flight before bagging a pilot’s license.
Giving details about his feat, Kanav Arora said that his total flight experience spanned three hours and forty minutes. “I learnt to fly a Cessna 172 R (VT-ACR),” he said. He maintained that he was fascinated towards and dreamt of flying planes since a very young age. He averred that after being duly acclimatized to the rigours of an actual flight, he learned the use of some basic controls to maneuver an aircraft.
“I learnt to control the basic gear of an aircraft including the rudder, aileron and elevator, besides gaining an insight into the yaw movement of an airplane. I also learnt to check the instruments inside an aircraft, besides being trained at conducting external checks to ensure that the airplane is ready to fly or not,” he said.
Kanav maintained that his flight training also entailed instructions about starting an airplane, taking off and landing, maintaining a certain height while in the air, and controlling the aircraft at lower heights. “I also learnt to use the instruments inside an airplane,” Kanav said.
Euphoric at this achievement of a Spring Dalean, Mr Rajiv Kumar Sharma, Principal, Spring Dale Senior School, said that school is proud of achievement of Kanav Arora, who is among the few youth in the city to be awarded a flying license lately. “The lad has done the institution proud by bagging a flying license at such a young age,” he said.
Congratulating Kanav, Dr Kirat Sandhu Cheema, Director, Spring Dale Senior School, and Mr Sahiljit Singh Sandhu, Managing Trustee, Spring Dale Educational Society, said that the school is proud of his achievement. “We wish him good luck in all his future endeavours.”
