Sarang team of IAF all set for Singapore Airshow 2024

New Delhi, Feb 19 (UNI) Ahead of the Singapore Airshow on Tuesday, the Sarang Helicopter Display Team of the Indian Air Force (IAF) conducted its first practice display.

The team is operating from the Changi airbase of the Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF), a Defence Ministry statement said.

The Sarang team is performing a four helicopter display for the audience at the Singapore Airshow this year. The display is designed to highlight the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruv’s agility and manoeuvrability, as well as the high degree of skills of the IAF pilots flying these machines.

The airshow features a variety of display teams from all across the globe. The show also features leading aircraft and system manufacturers and operators showcasing their products.

The Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), manufactured Advanced Light Helicopter (Dhruv), which the Sarang team operates, is featuring in the show for the very first time. However, the first international display for the Sarang team also happened to be at Singapore for the Asian Aerospace Airshow at Changi Exhibition Center in 2004.

The indigenously manufactured ALH and its advanced variants are operated by all the military services of India. The successful induction and operational utilisation of this platform is one of the glowing success stories of self-reliance (Aatmanirbharta) in the defence sector.
