NASHIK (PTI): The 11 Base Repair Depot (11 BRD) of Air Force Station at Ojhar here which undertakes maintenance and overhauling MiG series combat aircraft, is currently engaged in upgradation of MiG 29 which is in final stages.

Group Captain and Station Commander of Air Force Station, Ojhar, P K Anand said at the depot on Thursday that overhauling of MiG23 has been stopped since 2015.

"Since 1996, our depot overhauled a number of aircraft and even upgraded them," he added.

The upgraded MiG29 combat aircraft is fully equipped for delivering weapons, including missiles, increasing its capability, Group Captain and Station PRO, N Chaturvedi said.

The depot engineers have made most of the changes and enhanced the aircraft by using 90 per cent of 'indigenous spares parts', produced in Nashik-based industrial units, Chaturvedi added.

"Nashik has become for us a 'aviation-hub'. Even 11 BRD's best awards went to Nashik industrial unit for supplying and manufacturing good quality spares, which has also reduced our cost in overhauling combat aircraft," he said.

During the visit to the depot, mediapersons were shown its assembly line, aircraft engine shops, pilot's special ejecting-seat workshop and stores of spare parts.
