The Indian Air Force (IAF) comprises various branches that work together to ensure the defense and operational capabilities of the Air Force.

The Indian Air Force (IAF) is the aerial warfare branch of the Indian Armed Forces. It was officially established on 8 October 1932 as an auxiliary air force of the British Empire and became an independent force in 1947 after India gained independence. The IAF is responsible for the defense of Indian airspace, conducting aerial operations, and providing assistance in times of natural disasters.

Here are the major branches and components of the Indian Air Force:

The Flying Branch is the core operational branch of the Indian Air Force. It includes various types of aircraft and pilots who are responsible for conducting air operations, including air defense, ground attack, reconnaissance, and transport. The Flying Branch is further divided into different branches based on the type of aircraft they operate, such as Fighter Pilots, Transport Pilots, Helicopter Pilots, and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) Pilots.
