45% Of Indian Air Force Crashes Due To Incompetent Pilots

April 19, 2010

NEW DELHI: A whopping 45% of IAF air crashes in the last six years have taken place due to human error.

The IAF has informed the parliamentary committee on defence that it had recorded a total of 74 air mishaps between April 2004 and March 2010, of which a high of 42% was due to technical faults in the aircraft and a mere 6% due to bird-hit.

The figures in percentage would mean the IAF has suffered 33 crashes out of 74 due to human errors, 31 due to technical errors in the aircraft and another 4 due to bird hit. Reasons for the remaining six crashes have not been given to the committee.

The committee, in its latest report submitted to Parliament, noted with concern that these mishaps were taking place in the backdrop of the IAF facing a crisis due to shortage of trainer aircraft and obsolescence of simulators for its pilot trainees.

It pointed out with concern that the IAF’s Hindustan Piston Trainer-32, a basic trainer aircraft, had remained grounded for over a year now following a mishap early last year and the Kiran Mk-II HJT-16 simulators were in disuse.

The committee, headed by Congress MP Satpal Maharaj, said the Defence Ministry should take all steps to acquire new trainer aircraft and upgrade the simulators “so that adequate training is provided for pilots, which would definitely result in reduction of accidents due to human failure.”

The IAF has faced problems with HPT-32’s engine and airframe, even as it spared all its Kiran trainers (usually used for secondary flying training) to enable rookie pilots to learn flying skills.

It also had a gap in its training syllabus due to the lack of an Advanced Jet Trainer (AJT) when pilots moved on from Kiran aircraft to MiG-21 supersonic fighter jets.

After a protracted process lasting 20 years, the IAF contracted to buy 66 BAE’s Hawk AJTs in 2004 and the first lot were inducted for training pilots in 2008.

  1. DESPITE BEING INCOMPITANT THEY ARE TRUSTED BECAUSE THERE IS NOT TOO MUCH NEPOTISM IN INDIA.FURTHER USA NEEDS INDIA IN MAKING ITS CONSPIRACIES AGAINST PAKISTAN SUCCESSFUL AND THEY SHALL SUCCEED IN THEIR CONSPIRACIES AGAINST PAKISTAN AFTER INDIA KILLS ME IN ANY MANNER INCLUDING POISONING ME


    • it should be a food for thought for general deepak and the indian high command,i recommend them to stop their malignant ambitions


  2. HA HA and they are talking war with Pakistan & China at a time, what a bunch of clowns.


  3. Keep on over-estimating yourselves and underestimating us. And while you’re at it, you might as well get a bit of a superiority complex as well….

    Carry on…


    • Yeah and you carry on visiting this site pretending that Pakistani views don’t matter to you when they surely do!.Had that not been the case you wouldn’t be ADDICTED to this site.


      • I’m addicted to getting a few laughs in the day… which, I must admit, you guys are very well capable of providing.


  4. Subservient nation trying to fly…to many; it is more like laughing gears and stokes of Indians!

    What else to except from an inferior, complex ridden, Aid beaten, poverty stricken nation and from their plop third grad army that is if Indian army can be considered an army?

    World laughs at Indians. Just travel through the streets of any western countries, you will find no one likes Indians and diffently they don’t like these hindoz and their fake man made hindoism rubbish.


    • And doesn’t that make you wonder then…. despite the fact that we are so useless – we’re not getting bombed, we don’t really get aid anymore, we’ve actually registered growth during the period of the economic crisis, and we’re generally better off than you.

      In that case, I would prefer our “inferior, complex ridden, Aid beaten, poverty stricken nation “…. than your obviously superior nation.


      • Amused- or abused

  5. Alhumdulilah, may Allah destroy enemies of Islam more n more and keep us in rite path,aameen.


  6. WHAT the blog as usual will not tell you is!!!

    1)IAF is a much much bigger force with a greater operational tempo and area.
    2) PAF is a SMALLER FORCE and if their crashes are taken as a % to their fleet,they are not perfect either.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_accidents_and_incidents_involving_military_aircraft_%282000%E2%80%93present%29

    PAF flies lower flying hours due to operational and budget concerns.

    Till recently due to spares constrains the old PAFs were flying very less.

    How can an air force crash its planes when they cannot really fly them???

    And BTW did anyone know that PAF is the ONLY airforce that lost TWO C-130 transport planes ON THE GROUND itself.

    The pilot rammed it into another parked c-130 while TESTING its engines WOWWW

    • @rajk

      And is this the best β€œBO” answer you could come up with? Your argument is irrelevant to this article; capturing third rate Indian army’s collapsed air force.

      Please read the article once more time, and if possible read the third time so you can actually understand what actually is happening in unless Indian army/crowed and in her biggest coffin making air force workshops, which are busy assembling Russian junks thrown to India with love from Russia.

      Indian Hindus should face their dark and dire realities and should not hide behind their corrupt media propagandists who are faking up ground conditions; typical of Hindu Zionists, playing with the weak, inferior and futile minds of Hindus!


    • lol @ rajk

      And your airforce is the only airforce from a Billion plus country in the world who run like mice when they are countered by the Pakistani Airforce πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      https://pakistankakhudahafiz.wordpress.com/2008/12/22/pakistan-air-force-were-ready/

      Where were all your “FLYING HOURS” here πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ ??

      What happened ??

      Why did your sissy pilots Pee in their pants here ??? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Keep ur lying rubbish to yourself and get some bangles for ur transvestite pilots πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      And dont even get me started on planes, as far as planes go we have built the Jf-17 ..whereas ur tejas is still as mythical as ur country πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Cowards like u can talk stats but when it comes to an actual fight u runaway like mice with Internationally Documented Proof πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      The US Airforce is much bigger and powerful …they dont seem to have a pathetic rate like u do …

      Its because ur Shining india rant is fake and the reality is showing here πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

      Now get back to ur earlier job of scrapping cow shit for to fuel ur air balloons …lol lol
      hahahahhahahahahahaahaha πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€


      • And yours is one the few air airforces that project themselves as super men WITHOUT having achieved anything or turned any battle for Pakistan.

        Keep on relying on fantastic stories of Paf pilots shooting 6 Indian aircraft in 6 seconds.
        For what??

        Is war a sport or cricket match where scores are set!
        PAF is supposed to have shot down 100s and 100s of Indian aircraft!!!

        Yet it never manages to actually win a war?????

        Did it ever catch an Indian armoured trust in the open?

        IAF wiped out a pak armour thrust in Longewala effectively puuting pak out of offensive action in the west in 1971.

        Even in 1965,cld pak make ant difference to the failed opeartion Grand slam or Gibraltar.

        Kargil!!!
        It is Indian Mig 29s which actually kept PAf at bay.
        Its not the fantasy article that you post.
        Your OWN PAF officer who took part in Kargil mentions it.

        ”The over-arching consideration was the BVR missile capability of IAF fighters which impinged unfavourably on the mission success probability”

        http://kaiser-aeronaut.blogspot.com/2009/01/kargil-conflict-and-pakistan-air-force.html

        Fantasies do not win wars.
        Pakistan knows that best!!!!


      • @ Salam Hu ***Mah Badolath Janab e Alih Emperor Shanshah e Jahan Babur****..

        YOU HAVE BROKEN THE DIRTY LIEYING MOUTHS OF INDIAN INFERIOUR HINDUS, WHO CAN NOW ONLY LIVE LIEING FOR THEIR REST LIVES ON EARTH. I’D SAY LET THEM GAT ON WITH LIEING AND FAKING UP TILL WE GO BACK TO TAKE THEM BACK ONCE AND FOR ALL. REST I LEAVE IT TO YOUR HONOURBLE ***JALAL E AZAM*** TO DEAL AS YOU PLEASE..!:))

      • @rajk

        lol lol …hahahah

        You still havent answered my question…why do ur pilots run away when they encountered PAF πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Leave all the stats aside, because we beat u all ends up on the stats πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Answer this : WHY THE f**K DID UR SISSY PILOTS “RUN AWAY” ?

        Please its only as simple as answering this ? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        And please man, ur in no position to talk about the USAF ..its a Giant where as the Indian Airforce is a transvestite rats rear end…lol lol lol lol πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Like mice they scat away when a real challenge comes up ..lol lol

        Heck they crash planes in THIN AIR ..hahahahahahahahahahahaha

        The highest crash rate for the indian airfARCE is because of “Pilot Error” …hahahahahahaha

        Freakin faggots !


      • Even if the answer is staring at your face you do not get it!!!!
        What does one do at that levels of incomprehension!!!
        Well let me try again!
        Your incident is by a dawn newspaper,which has no corroboration or basis.

        We have never heard of any such incident,and nor do we see any basis for the same.
        All we see is your air force cannot do a shit about drones roaming all over its borders.
        Yes it can BOMB ITS own mosques and civilians and kill hundreds of innocent students and worshippers.
        I give you a link of YOUR OWN PAF officer stating how PAF DID not engage the IAF in KArgil.

        And you expect me to reply to fairy tales from newspapers.
        Sad,you have not yet woken from your delusions one bit!


      • @rajk

        ok so now dawn news is irrelevant πŸ˜€

        How bout this link :

        http://www.thenews.com.pk/top_story_detail.asp?Id=18942

        This is pakistan’s largest newspaper, it has published the same exact story. But ofcourse now being an indian you will reject this as well…lol lol

        So here we go ..here are ur big daddy’s the British writing the same story about 1969 when the Pakistan Airforce knocked the living hell out of the indian transvestite airfarce πŸ˜€

        Im sure after reading this you are going to reject this too..after all it IS a BIG INsult to India when their large and mighty queers were downed like mosquitoes in thin air πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ :D..lol lol

        So buddy what happened after mumbai is a repetition of what ur airfarce always does …run away like mice ..exaggerate truths ..basically indulge into myths which have no truth πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Because they cant achieve victory and are humiliated by their masters as usual πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Now come on …we didnt rule india for a 1000 years by being queers and faggots, it takes real men to do that. πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        And you might want to note this down as well. We are going to comeback to rule our country once again ! – The Mughal Empire will be revived …:D :D..under a different name …

        The PAF, Jf-17, the nukes and everything …else is just the beginning …:D πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

        Wait to here ” This is Radio Pakistan New Delhi”…soon πŸ˜€


      • here’s the second link

        http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1969/1969%20-%200112.html


      • You are making my point!!!

        All those old articles about PAF air power only end up in an inflated self aggrandisement.

        There is lot of speculation that at the end of 65 as well as 71 war,PAF and Pak were so afraid of the myth being broken that Mirages and sabres were brought from Jordan and saudia arabia to cover the losses try to prove the IAF wrong.

        In both wars Pakistan did not achieve what it set out to do so.
        Hence the attempts to desperately save at least a few scraps of pride.
        The point is Paf has always fought under the shadows and mistakes of the Pak army.
        Read this pakistani article.

  7. Haha lol its being better for iaf to have low flights instead of destroying planes
    wel everyone know the briliance of paf u guyz may remember mm alam destroy 4 indians planes in less than in a minute in 1965 war wid a low techno plane at that time so u clearly see the future what paf capable of doing with jf 17 and f16
    and u didnt saw the azme no exercisez go saw dem to know the reality paf rockz


  8. crashes happens all the time but the truth is PAF is more professional than IAF


    • sure. and bangladesh air force is more professional than USAF


  9. Amused,

    Doesn’t take much to light up the ass of an Indian addicted to Pak sites!!.Laugh your ass you suffer from a Paki complex you cheap wannabe!!!


  10. WAKE UP CALL….

    “The Indian Air Force is a world-class air force with great aircraft, great pilots, and great leadership,” said Capt. Marcus Wilson, an Aggressor pilot at Nellis and the team chief for the exercise.

    β€œThe (Indian) pilots are as aggressive as our pilots. They are excellent aviators; they work very hard at mission planning; they try to get as much out of a mission or sortie as possible, just like us,” he said. β€œFrom one fighter pilot to another, there’s really not that much difference in how we prepare for a mission and what we want to get out of it.”
    Col. Greg Neubeck

    β€œI pity the pilot who has to face the IAF and chances the day to underestimate him; because he won’t be going home.”


  11. lol @nik.

    Pakistan Air Force is the only air force in the world which has shot down indian and israeli aircraft in air to air combat.

    hindu airforce has only shot down their own aircraft.

    WAKE UP and do the dew !!!!! hahahahahaha

    You have to have real men to fly and fight in a fighter aircraft…….not indian pussies.
