(20-01-2019) » Field Trip: Airforce Academy, Dindigul

Dear Birders:
We have organised a very interesting outing this month.  We shall visit the  AIRFORCE  ACADEMY  at Dindigul.  It is a training institute for training of pilots for Indian Air Force.  The visit has been possible due to the good offices of Wg.Cdr. Praksh Rao (Retd), Life Member of our Society and an experienced birder.  He has taken special permission for the visit of our members.
The academy has got a huge campus with lot of greenery and could afford reasonably good bird variety.  Apart from birding, we expect to be shown their air crafts, etc.
The route to the academy is Balkampet, Balanagar and onto the Narsapur / Medak highway.  It is about 35 kms from the city.  It would be to your right – with a very prominent name board.  Please try to reach by 6:30 a.m, or latest by 7:00 a.m. so that security forrmalities can be completed.  Please carry your Aadhaar cards as also our BSAP ID cards, which may be of some help.
We shall all gather at Punjagutta by 6:00 a.m. and go in a convoy.  You can however come directly to the academy if you wish.Since Surekha is not available, I shall coordinate.  Let me know if any one need a lift as also those who can take passengers.
Remember:  Sunday, 20th January, 2019  –  6:30 a.m.  It would be half day trip.
