Hakimpet (Secunderabad)

Historically an important airfield, which was used in World War II as a transit airfield by the Allied forces, Hakimpet today is a modern training base. Here pilots selected for the Fighter Stream undergo a 22-week semester of training on the Polish-built ISKRA jet trainer aircraft. This semester takes place after commissioning and is a prelude to continuation of training on fast jets. Pilots selected for the Helicopter Stream undergo a semester of 22 weeks on the HAL built Chetak helicopter and subsequently move on to another 22 weeks of training at Yelahanka, Bangalore.
