    This is a meaningless 'statistic'. Assuming India crashes more than China, even though we may not know the exact circumstances of each event, we do know that a crash is one result of flight, the other result is a successful landing. So if there are ten crashes, we know there are at least ten flights. These ten could mean the Indian pilots were either utterly incompetent or that they were competent but the Indian Air Force is pushing their limits to become better. A wise military leader would always assume the latter.

    Well MiG 21 is an high altitude interceptor and everyone knows that the flight controls are sluggish below 3000ft. The pride of IAF is that they tend to fly low and fly really fast. Do your math. The MiG 21 bison has the new FCS so the crashes are lesser.

    Gambit, The flight hours of IAF is on an average of 200-220 hours for every pilot in the IAF. I couldnt get the exact statistics for fighter pilots.
