Air Marshal Sreekumar Prabhakaran, the Western Air Commander, inaugurated the new complex of the Indian Air Force (IAF) school on Thursday, according to officials. The air officer commanding-in-chief (AOC-in-C), Western Air Command, was accompanied by Rekha Prabhakaran, president of the Air Force Wives Welfare Association (Regional), on Thursday, according to a defence spokesperson.
The IAF station is home to 130 helicopter units known as “The Condors,” which were established in 1988.
Prabhakaran said he inaugurated the new school building during his visit to the IAF station.
According to the spokesperson, the new building is outfitted with both modern and contemporary facilities, with the goal of establishing it as a “centre of excellence” to provide technology-driven quality education to students – both Air Force personnel and civilians.
On this occasion, Rekha Prabhakaran unveiled the ‘Flight Lieutenant Advitiya Bal rolling trophy’ for the best all-rounder, which was generously instituted by Flight Lieutenant Advitiya Bal’s parents.
The AOC-in-C interacted with students and teachers and praised the school management committee’s efforts to improve the school’s educational quality.
