8 Comments on "PHOTOS: IAF Formally Inducts Pilatus Trainers"
If this a proud moment my heart wonders?
I don't know why but most of our defense personnel seem to have a tire around the waist. Might be they dont have time to work out with all the internal duties but every time i see a photograph there are a few guys with a fex extra kilos.
Pilatus 7 is a old trainer compared with pilatus 21. Why IAF goes for obsolete trainers when Qatar and other air forces are inducting pilatus 21 to train their pilots.
My goodness look at these bunch of unfit guys. I am wondering if they are defense personnel or politicians.
which helmet is it in 2nd Picture, mostly seen with US Pilots
does anyone knows name ??????
Don't Know exactly But Helmet Looks Like GENTEX HGU-55/P
and Oxy Mask is GENTEX MBU-23/P
maybe those are first from Gentex in IAF
Nothing to be proud of…Infact, a shameful moment that a nation talking big cannot even produce a reliable basic trainer.HAL will now reverse engineer this and boast that they have developed a new trainer
