Chandigarh, Nov 1 (UNI) The 23rd raising day of Army Aviation Corps was today celebrated by all Aviation Squadrons under Western Command at Chandimandir cantonment.
This year Western Command got the COAS Flight Safety Trophy.
On November 1, 1986 Army Aviation Corps was created from erstwhile Air Observation Post. This elite arm, today is wholly manned, maintained and flown by selected officers of the Indian Army.
Making a humble beginning with four light weight unarmed AUSTER aircrafts in 1947, the erstwhile Air OP (Air Observation Post) made stellar contribution in three Indo-Pak conflicts.
The history of Army Aviation Corps is replete with many gallantry awards.
