First off, let me say I really do not know to much about the CAT III system and all that goes along with it.
With that said.
After reading an article posted in the Civil Forum regarding the fog during the winter time that surrounds Delhi International Aiport (VIDP) that said Delhi had installed a CAT III Ils system on its main runway. In the article it said that only 12 Indian Airline pilots had the training to use the equipment and 0 pilots from Jet Airways and Sahara Airways had the required training. My mom works for Jet Airways so she asked a VP there and he said one of the reasons for not getting the pilots trained is the high cost of training, he said it would cost around $1 Million per pilot. My question, is the cost of this training really that high? And if it is, why?
Thanks for any replies (I really hope that made sense)
