Accord­ing to sources the Indi­an crew will be part of the flight tri­als on board Admi­ral Gor­shkov, rechris­tened as INS Vikra­ma­ditya, will begin soon.

“The com­plete crew of Gor­shkov – over a thou­sand peo­ple – has got on board the war­ship. The flight tri­als will begin soon and Russ­ian fight­er jets will under­take these tri­als,” sources added. The MiG-29 Ks fight­er jets that will oper­ate from this war­ship once it touch­es Indi­an shores on Decem­ber 4 are present­ly con­duct­ing shore-based fly­ing from Goa. The pilots have been under­tak­ing train­ing in the US to take off and land on an air­craft car­ri­er.

“The crew of Gor­shkov com­pris­es of both expe­ri­ence sailors and fresh­er. Many of the crew-mem­bers have already served on board the Indi­an Navy’s lone air­craft car­ri­er INS Viraat,” sources added. While the deliv­ery date of the war­ship is fixed cer­tain tri­als of the air­craft car­ri­er will be done post its induc­tion in the force.

The plat­form will be hand­ed over to the Indi­an Navy final­ly some­time in Novem­ber this year there­after it will begin it’s voy­age to Indi­an shores.
