The Birth of the Indian Air Force

The Indian Air Force started on October 8, 1932, but it was called the Royal Indian Air Force back then because India was part of the British kingdom. At first, it had only six Royal Air Force officers and 19 Hawai Sepoys. But as time went on, it became super strong and all on its own flying force!

Evolution of the Indian Air Force

A long time ago, there was something called the Royal Indian Air Force. But then, in 1947, when India got its independence, they decided to take away the “Royal” part and just call it the Indian Air Force. The Indian Air Force did really important stuff in different fights, like the 1947-48 Indo-Pak War. They helped the Indian Army a lot by flying in the sky and giving them important help. It was like a big team effort!
