The Air Force Commanders’ Conference that commenced on 14 Oct 14 had a break as all the Commanders participated in the Combined Commanders’ Conference at South Block. The Air Force Commanders’ Conference will resume tomorrow and conclude in the evening.
During the last three days, the Air Officers Commanding-in-Chief (AOsC-in-C) of the seven IAF Commands have discussed varied issues ranging from op-preparedness of the Commands to maintenance and administration challenges. The IAF leadership also interacted with the senior managers of HAL, BEL and BDL. Both sides understood the concerns of each other on the impact of delays on operational readiness of the IAF. Discussions hinged on life-cycle management of various aircraft fleet/equipment and product quality.
The training pattern in the IAF for both the flying and ground duty branches is expected to be discussed during the session on Saturday.
