Saw this plane circling around Lucknow airport (LKO).
This is happening every day. Any idea what is happening?
That is a plane being used to train/practice landings.
It is without passengers and one of the pilots is training. There will also be another pilot on board, possibly two, providing support and checking that the trainee is performing their duties according to the manual.
I asked Lucknow Airport via their official twitter. Their response was, erm, terse.
Q: Why does Indigo flight 6E8002 circle Lucknow Airport every single day for an hour?
@aailkoapt (LUCKNOW AIRPORT): Training Flight.
