Let's salute to our Indian Army together, We are proud to be Indian.


Our Indian Air Force was founded 87 years on 8th October, 1932. The Indian Air Force (IAF) is the air army of the Indian Armed Forces. Its complement of personnel and aircraft assets ranks fourth among all the air forces of the world. Its primary mission is to secure Indian airspace and to conduct aerial warfare during armed conflict. It was officially setup on 8th October, 1932 as an auxiliary air force of the British Empire which honored India’s aviation service during World War II with the prefix Royal. After India gained independence from the United Kingdom in 1947, the name Royal Indian Air Force was kept and served in the name of Dominion of India. With the government’s transition to a Republic in 1950, the prefix Royal was removed after only three years.
