During the Inaugural Session Air Marshal Chandra said that we must identify the areas to be focused for Research and Development towards self reliance in the field of Aero engine repair and reclamation.

The seminar was spread over five sessions. Air Mshl Kanakaraj  stressed on the need for Public and Private Partnership in aero space industries to promote indigenous entrepreneurship.

The participants discussed the various advancements and challenges related to Repair and Overhaul of aero engines.
