Living life on the edge everyday says Suryakiran team

Bangalore:  Members of the Suryakiran team, Indian Air Force’s elite aerobatics squad, today highlighted the attributes that went into the making of a Suryakiran pilot.
“To be a Suryakiran pilot you need to have the courage of a bull fighter, the steady nerves of a surgeon and the spirit of a braveheart”, said wing commander Prajual Singh, team leader and commanding officer of the squad, performing at the ongoing Aero India show.
“Most of us are in the team because we love the thrill and the sheer adventure it offers”, Singh said.
The team has mesmerismed onlookers with their risky, crisp and stunning mid-air complex manoeuvres at the show.
“Knowledge of the aircraft, maturity to take the right decision and discipline are the three basic traits required”, said Singh, whose team’s mid-air stunts like criss-crossing in the skies, rolling the metal bird on its belly and looping around, has come in for accolades.
“Alertness and precision required for conducting an aerobatic display, requires continuous practice”, said wing commander Deepak Setia. “It is only practice that makes us perfect”, said Singh echoing Setia’s views.
