An officer is a member of an armed force or uniformed service who holds a position of authority. To be able to lead and control requires the ability to motivate yourself inspire others and make tough decisions efficiently.
When you join to become an Air Force Officer, the organisation helps you develop your leadership and management skills, preparing you fully to take on the challenge of leading in real life situations. Lessons in teamwork, developing communication skills and confidence, honing strategic and dynamic thinking and preparing you to face pressures with ease are grilled into an Officer during his training. The Air Force teaches you all, not only making men and women of young boys and girls but making them leaders in life. An officer’s strength of character and strong moral compass make him/her stand out from the crowd at all times.
The headquarters of the IAF is in New Delhi. For effective command and control, IAF has seven Commands, under which are various stations and units located at varied locations across the Country. The organisation’s chart shows the set up of Indian Air Force at a glance.
