    RAWALPINDI: According to a statement issued by the Pakistan Air Force (PAF), the groundbreaking ceremony of the Air University Aerospace and Aviation campus was held at the Aviation City in Kamra, on Tuesday.

    Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi was present during the groundbreaking and later unveiled the plaque of Air University Campus. Chief of the Air Staff Air Chief Marshal Sohail Aman was also present on the occasion.

    Chairman Pakistan Aeronautical Complex Kamra Air Marshal Ahmer Shehzad, during the ceremony, spoke about the various features of the newly established Aviation City. He expressed hope that the Aviation City will become an aviation hub in the region in the future.

    Chief of the air staff while speaking on the occasion said that “The realisation of Air University Aerospace and Aviation Campus is, in fact, part of the strategic vision of Pakistan Air Force to develop Industry-Academia linkage in the form of Aviation City. It is heartening to share that this strategic initiative also holds significant potential to attract a large number of international scholars and trainees who, besides providing intellectual exchange, would enhance Pakistan’s image with obvious economic and diplomatic gains.”

    Aman further commented that “The campus would also play a significant role in addressing the emergent new geopolitical realities in the region. I am confident that with the government’s patronage, PAF will be able to achieve a wide range of strategic gains linked to aviation technology,” and added that, “The focused research and development of the aviation industry in the recent past have yielded positive results for which the country is proud.”

    “The current challenges facing the country demand greater focus on indigenous efforts. This requires skilled manpower which entails investment in education. As such, developed nations invest heavily in education and their leadership focuses on human resource for re-shaping the destiny of the countries,” said the air chief.

    The recently inaugurated Aviation City would house various hi-tech and state of the art academic, research and development institutes for achieving self-reliance in the field of aviation.

    The Air University Aerospace and Aviation Campus forms the nucleus of the Aviation city and is modelled after the internationally acclaimed aviation universities in the world.

    Now I understand why the air chief was so confident we will have MALE drones within 18 months. Looks like a lot of work had already been done.
    Impressive CAD CAM and 3D printing. Loved the video

    at first glance I thought these are Wing Loong UAVs but I think it is different as it appear it have high wing configuration as compare to Wing loong which have mid wing configuration
