Singapore air chief to visit IAF stations on three-day official trip

New Delhi, Nov 11 (IBNS): Chief of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) major general Hoo Cher Mou on Tuesday arrived in New Delhi on a three-day official tour of the country.

The visiting chief of RSAF was accorded a guard of honour at air headquarters, said a press statement issued by the Ministry of Defence (MoD). 

He also met the chief of the air staff, air chief marshal Arup Raha, and discussed matters of mutual interest.

The Singapore air chief is slated to visit air force station in Agra on Wednesday to get a firsthand account of the training pattern being followed at two of the most prestigious air force establishments - the Para Troopers School (PTS) and the Mid Air Refueling Squadron (MARS). 

The following day he is scheduled to visit air force station at Kalaikunda where a team of RSAF personnel is already undergoing training as part of the ‘Joint Military Training’ (JMT).

The annual air staff talks between the air forces of India and Singapore commenced in 2006. The IAF-RSAF JMT is an annual programme that has regularly been held since 2008. 

The JMT provides an ideal platform for exchange of air tactics and training philosophy to the pilots of the two countries, the statement said.
