    Why can't Airforce develop a helicopter flight simulator if they don't expertise get help of University of Colombo Computer Faculty.Perhaps moratuwa university which developed drone can help.

    Good. I hope they ground ALL the Air Force helicopters now. I live in Attidiya, and the past few days was like being in hell with these copters flying round and round between 6.00 p.m. and 8.00 p.m. Was that training too I wonder?
