Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee and Chief of the Air Staff Addresses Naval War College

Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, Chairman Chiefs of Staff Committee(COSC) and Chief of Air Staff (CAS) today delivered his address to the top brass of the three services as well as the civilian officers of the Government of India at the Naval War College, Goa. Talking on Transformation of the IAF-Challenges and Opportunities, ACM Raha brought out that Aerospace power being the youngest by virtue of a mere 110 years of existence also had the unique advantage of freedom from surface friction inherent in Land and Sea operations. Stressing on the primacy of aerospace power, he also said that it would also remain the primary instrument of choice in most operational contingencies and thereby affect the outcome in war and peace.

ACM Raha stated that for India to have a greater strategic footprint in the existing world order, the requirement of aerial platforms for enhanced air mobility, heavy lift, Airborne early warning and in-flight refueling were considered inescapable. These platforms would also have enhanced relevance in the future threat environment.

In conclusion, he said it was imperative that procurement of strategic assets be made a continuous and long term endeavour, based on judicious allotment of funds combined with visionary planning and commitment of national resources, involving all the stake holders.

High-rises around Yelahanka Air Force Station a cause of concern - The Hindu

Cranes are perched atop buildings and they pose a problem’
After birds, it is that high-rises coming up around Ballari Road that are posing problems for pilots at the Yelahanka Air Force Station, the only Air Force base in Bengaluru.

Speaking to presspersons here on Wednesday, Yelahanka Air Force Station’s Chief Operations Officer Amit Pushkar said that the bird menace – which had peaked due to the improper facilities at Mavallipura dumpyard – had reduced. However, numerous high-rises had popped up in the area.

“At least five cranes are perched atop buildings and pose a hindrance to landing aircraft,” he said. Despite town planning rules specifying high-rises within 20-km radius of the airfield need a No Objection Certificate from the Ministry of Defence and air base authorities, there have been violations, said Mr. Pushkar.

Air Commodore S.C. Gulati, Air Officer Commanding of the AFS, said meetings have been held with the Bangalore Development Authority and the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike on the issue.

However, the Bengaluru Development Authority said that it could not take action in this case as it was not within the scope of the authority. “Plan approvals are given by BBMP and it is not our jurisdiction,” said P.N. Naik, Member Engineer, BDA.

Mayor B.N. Manjunath Reddy said that the approvals were given only after the Air Force authorities gave their nod.

To avoid such issues from cropping up, the town planning rules clearly state that for construction of high-rises in the 20-km radius of an airport, a no-objection certificate has to be obtained. “Before we go for plan sanction, the NOC has to be issued. Every airport has a tunnel path which can have no obstacles and as long as this tunnel path is not blocked, there should be no issue,” said Suresh Hari, General Secretary, CREDAI-Bengaluru.

How Many squadrons of Su-30s of india are in the north to counter the Chinese?

Ladakh, Aksi Chin area.
Su-30 MKI is a very long range fighter.A MKI stationed in Gujarat can cover Ladakh and Aksi Chin comfortably.
Hope i have answered the question.

i have a question but don,t know where to ask? i decided to ask that question on this thread.
since indian air force operat mig-29 and su-30 both, i want to know which jet operational cost is less. i mean userfriendly, fuel eficincy, less maintanance cost, less accident etc..............?:raise:
We don't know the exact numbers. Both have reported problem with unavailability of spairs .
Considering MKI is bigger and have maintenance intensive high output engines it could be more costlier to operate.

Looking forward to this most of all, it has been al too long since SKAT last performed. Hopefully we will see them back up to full strength (comprising 21 a/c to sustain a 9-ship display) flying their iconic diamond formation soon.
