After a near famine of officers at the helm of safety affairs, the DGCA will get 130 airworthiness officers in two months, DG  E.K. Bharat Bhushan told Aerospace Diary.

Bhushan explained the process of recruitment was complicated. Another official said the 130 officers would be chosen from a pool of around 1300 and it could take longer for them to be inducted.

The status of the report on Kingfisher that was to be presented to the ministry of civil aviation in late March, is unknown. Bhushan had said: “Kingfisher is severely hamstrung for want of funds and we still do not have any clarity whether the airline will be able to defray its liabilities. We have no assurance on that." It seems as the situation remains status quo.

Kingfisher Airlines is operating 16 aircraft and four on standby (of its fleet of 66. Bhushan said: "We are conducting checks on them every day (at metros)."
