  • The Doppler Very High Frequency Omni Range (DVOR) and DME (Distance Measuring Instrument) systems set up by the Airports Authority of India (AAI) at the top of Thachi hill about 60 km from Bhuntar aiport, near the Kullu-Manali border, have been commissioned.
  • Now the aircraft will be able to land even in bad weather at Bhuntar airport.
  • The global aviation watchdog ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organisation) considers DVOR coupled with DME standard navigational aids for the approaching aircraft.
  • With the help of the DVOR and DME, the aircraft can accurately predict its direction and distance while in air.
