Ahead of the facilitation, the ace batsman had to go through a process of familiarisation with the IAF and training in basic military practices.
Tendulkar is the first sports person to ever be conferred a rank by IAF and the first personality with no aviation background to get this honour. The master blaster was also named the brand ambassador for the force.
The Indian Air Force was officially established on October 8, 1932 when it was created as an auxiliary air force of the Indian Empire.
