We seek your feedback via comments with subjects you would like to see covered. May be a what is involved in a “C check” or “D check”, or a comparison between the turbo-props in the Indian market, or the fuel efficiency of a Boeing 747-400 vs. Boeing 777-200LR, or some aspect of technical operations at an airport or performance based navigation or which flight school to attend? The possibilities are endless.
