Sir, even a 10 min/sortie for 101 sorties works out to nearly 17 hrs of flying (and prep - include Take off, Landing, Refueling, Checks etc) in a 24 hr day.
Would require very good skill, excellent physical and mental condition, good reliable equipment (and support team).
The autowallah comparison i only meant in a fun way, no disrespect intended. Just that the point-to-point share ricks of Mumbai are also usually short distance rides, typically about a km or so and they last about 5 minutes to and 5 minutes back.
Admittedly the Sqn Leader did not need to cope with Mumbai type traffic
