    Major General Roy Joseph, Additional Director General, NCC Directorate Gujarat, Dadra & Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu inaugurated the Naval Rowing Simulator at 2 Gujarat Naval Unit and Virus Microlight flight simulator at 1 Gujarat Air Squadron on 14 Oct 20 at Vadodara. Both projects have been supported by the State Education Department.

    VIRUS SW80 Microlight Flight Simulator has been declared operational at 1 Gujarat Air Squadron, Vadodara. The addition of the flight simulator would benefit cadets to learn almost real time flying and can fly solo also. The design and controls of the flight Simulator are exactly the same as that of recently acquired Virus SW80 Microlight aircraft.

    In addition, all emergencies and weather conditions can be simulated in it. The Flight Simulator would go a long way in training the Air cadets and this would not only save fuel costs but would also enable cadets to get first hand feel and acquaintance before flying real Microlight aircraft.

    Boat Pulling remains an important activity for the Naval cadets during their training. NCC Directorate Gujarat has nine Naval units and the cadets of these units are required to learn basics of handling Whaler boats at sea.

    Realising the importance of the boat pulling training, NCC Directorate has ensured installation of six Naval Rowing Simulators at Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Bhavnagar, Bhuj, Veraval and Navsari. It would benefit the cadets immensely as the naval simulators can help in increasing stamina of cadets which is an essential requirement of Boat Pulling.

    The Naval Simulator would go a long way in training the Naval cadets but also help the cadets to bring laurels to Gujarat Directorate in various National Naval camps and also in sailing expeditions.

    While interacting with officers, ANOs and cadets, ADG said, “The constant upgradation of training infrastructure will not only provide an opportunity to showcase their capabilities but will also provide multi-dimensional exposure to the cadets. We will soon going to introduce the firing simulator in the Army NCC wing. The simulators will beneficial for the cadets of all the three wings in their training”.

    He also added appreciated the efforts of NCC cadets in helping the government, police and local administration in Covid 19 pandemic. He said 50,000 masks prepared by cadets and distribute them at villages and local administration.

    400 cadets donate blood and online participation, training are also going on during this time. Cadets help the civil administration and government time to time. He thanked the state government and education department for the simulators.
