EXCLUSIVEIAF SPECIAL: INTERVIEW | CAS
On the occasion of the 86th Anniversary of the Indian Air Force (IAF), Air Chief Marshal B.S. Dhanoa, PVSM, AVSM, YSM, VM, ADC, Chief of the Air Staff spoke to Jayant Baranwal, Editor-in-Chief, SP’s Aviation
The induction of the 83 Mk-1A Tejas and 36 Rafale and the up gradation of the existing aircrafts will arrest the drop in the fighter squadrons
The success of the LCA Tejas is a national requirement and institutional ego, arrogance and bureaucratic red-tapism should not be allowed to fail it
The Indian Air Force (IAF) was quick to recognise the immense potential of fifth-generation fighters and around five years ago, seemed set to induct not one, but two types
Amid the row over the recent Rafale deal, the good news is that the Centre is all set to clear purchase of 114 new fighter jets worth over $20 billion
It is not only the fighter fleet, but also the other fleets in the Indian Air Force (IAF) that need attention of the policy makers and the leadership of the IAF
India has tremendous growth potential in the aerospace and defence industry. Offsets can be a medium to harness this potential, but only if they are Reformed, Rethought and Reset.
India is in the process of replacing 50 percent of its ageing defence equipment. It is expected to spend $100-150 billion on defence modernisation programmes by 2022. This presents a huge opportunity for MNCs and SMEs to leverage the fast-growing aerospace and defence sector in the country.
A business model adopted by Qatar Airways would possibly be a convenient solution of the problems faced by Air Charter companies in India
During the press conference, ahead of IAF’s 86th anniversary celebrations, CAS repeatedly, reiterated that Indian Air Force is much more than just Rafale. It is a potent force with a focus on the mission and the brilliant men behind the machines.
The Indian Air Force (IAF) may get control of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas project from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) and Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA).
Arjan Singh was a man of few words who never tried to throw his weight around, but won the loyalty of his personnel by his manifest professional excellence
The following appointments have been made in the Indian Air Force effective October 1, 2018:
The US Department of Defense and Lockheed Martin have finalized an $11.5 billion contract for the production and delivery of 141 F-35 aircraft at the lowest per aircraft price in programme history.
With the introduction of new technologies and complex demands, the Aviation, Aerospace and Defence industry is experiencing robust growth and unprecedented changes.
