IAF VVIP fleet to have anti-collision technology
New Delhi: The Indian Air Force (IAF) has decided that all VVIP aircraft it will procure in future will have "anti-collision technologies" incorporated in them, the government said on Monday.
"The type of equipment will depend on the role and operational employability of one aircraft," Defence Minister AK Antony said in a statement in the Lok Sabha.
He said the IAF presently operated Embraer Executive Jets and Boeing Business Jets for VIP and VVIP duties.
He said all these aircraft were equipped with Traffic Alert Collision Accordance Systems and Ground Proximity Warning Systems as anti-collision features.
"The total cost of procurement of these aircraft and the associated equipment is inclusive of the collision avoidance systems," he added.
