Financed by Airbus, the training took place under the auspices of the Co-operative Development of Operational Safety and Continuing Airworthiness (COSCAP) South Asia.

Three experts from the French Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Messrs Mathieu Ponvert, Pascal Tatin and Dany Athanase, conducted the various sessions, while India’s flag carrier, Air India, placed an Airbus at Delhi airport at the participants’ disposal for the practical exercises

This seminar forms part of the Indo-French technical aeronautical cooperation, initiated in 2008 between the French and Indian civil aviation administrations. This training session was inaugurated by Mr Arun Mishra, Director General DGCA, Mr Thierry Legouix, Airbus representative, and Mr Philippe Lambert, French DGCA representative.
