Sir, i wanted to know about post crash investigation of sir noman akram. Was it a pilot error? Is GCAS absent on PAF f-16? what changes have been made in SOP regarding flight ops of f-16.

Thanks in advance!
Initial findings were presented to air staff some time ago. I'm not aware of the details. But the hearsay does outline a pilot error that was caused due to improper maneuver followed by altitude misjudgment It was a chain reaction. It always is.
PAF F-16s do not have GCAS. It was introduced in later variants of F-16s that too on an experimental basis. it comes standard with F-16V's.

As for SOP's, Solo F-16 aerobatics have been dropped from future 23rd march shows.
