1. The mid-air collision of two planes over Charkhi Dadri in 1996 is one of India’s worst aviation disasters. The accident, which killed all 349 people aboard the two flights, prompted two major changes in aviation. First, India said that any aircraft carrying 30 or more passengers or a maximum payload capacity of more than 3 tons should be fitted with ACAS (Airborne Collision Avoidance System) to be allowed to fly in Indian airspace. . What is the other change that India has proposed to the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) that many countries have resisted? This requirement was not clarified until 2003, when ICAO published guidelines on this subject. And the reason India pushed for that was because that was a big part of the reason for the crash.

To respond :

Make English the language of aviation. Charkhi Dadri’s accident took place largely because the Kazakh pilot could not understand the instructions given to him in English.
