Tiddi Dal: Difficulties in flying, landing with locust crew, DGCA issued instructions

Posted on 30th May 2020 11:50 am by rohit kumar

Locust parties that are wreaking havoc on greenery in the country after entering Pakistan have also caused problems for the planes. The aviation regulator DGCA has instructed the pilots to take extra precautions while flying and landing. Along with this, an advisory has also been issued, in which the grasshopper teams have been ordered not to fly from their group after getting information. In the log book of the pilots doing this, instructions have been given to enter it as a mistake and to get the aircraft tested by engineers.


Explain that this is the most fierce attack of grasshopper parties in the country in the last 26 years. These pests, which consume crops and greenery, have spread to Punjab, Gujarat, Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh after entering Rajasthan.

The Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has issued a circular to all airlines. DGCA said, although the grasshoppers alone are of very small size, they can affect the pilot's ability to see ahead by hitting the windshield in large numbers. This situation is a matter of serious concern when the aircraft takes off, flies and goes to the parking bay. The DGCA has advised the pilots not to remove the dirt created by locusts hitting the windshield with the wiper. DGCA says that it can destroy the vision by spreading dirt in a much larger space.

The DGCA has directed air traffic controllers to share the information with all incoming and outgoing aircraft in the event of locust teams at the airport. The pilots have also been asked to issue an alert as soon as the locust teams appear while flying the aircraft.


Less danger in night flights


The DGCA says locust parties are less likely to threaten aircraft in night flights, as they become mostly inactive at night. But during this time, the DGCA has said that the aircraft standing in the parking lot at the airport is a threat from locust parties. For this reason, ground handling agencies have been asked to cover all the air inlets and probes of the aircraft.


Petition filed in NGT regarding grasshopper attack


At the same time, a petition has been filed in the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in Delhi and neighboring states in view of the threat of grasshopper parties. A petition filed by an NGO has sought direction to the central government to implement an emergency plan to deal with the situation.


Maharashtra Agricultural University has provided methods of control


In the midst of poor crop conditions due to grasshopper attacks in many states of the country, the Vasantrao Naik Agricultural University of Maharashtra has advised farmers to break their eggs and spray neem oil on all crops. Scientists at the Agricultural University of Parabhana in Marathwada said that locust parties can be overcome by digging 60 cm wide and 75 cm long pits, destroying their eggs and spraying neem oil on the standing crops to overcome them. is. The University's Department of Agricultural Entomology has issued a complete set of guidelines for farmers.
