BY TIMOTHY A. CLARYPosted November 20, 2019 09:38:13When India launches a plane, it would make sure the engines are equipped with its latest in satellite navigation tools.
That’s what the country’s Meteorological Department said today, announcing a launch of the first ever Arianespace aircraft in the country.
This aircraft will be the first Arianespeak-class aircraft to be launched by the country, the Meteorological Dept. said in a statement.
“It will be equipped with a variety of navigation technologies for meteorological and aviation purposes, including GPS, satellite navigation and advanced navigation,” it added.
The country has been busy since the launch of a new aircraft earlier this month that has a similar design to the Arianescope’s, though the latest aircraft is expected to have a smaller payload and carry less fuel.
The Meteorological department said the new aircraft would be capable of carrying up to four people, with two passengers on board.
The Arianeyspeak aircraft will take off from Sriharikota on November 22.
