Graduation parade of PAF Academy Risalpur; Sept 2014

Yesterday graduation parade of 132 GD (P), 77 Engineering Course, 91 Air Defence Course and Commissioning Parade of 135 GD (P), 81 Engineering Course, 16 A&SD course and 03 Navigation Course was held at PAF Academy Risalpur.

While addressing the graduating parade, the Air Chief said, “With Air Power fast becoming the future Weapon of Choice, you must acquire the ability to be able to accept this role with all its manifestations. Hundred percent commitments would be the minimum requirement for continuous progress of the Pakistan Air Force as a modern Force of the 21st Century. Make a note that, perseverance, diligence and unwavering determination would be name of the game. I therefore, want you to keep in mind what the Quaid said while addressing the PAF personnel at Malir, on 21st February, 1948: “You will have to be alert, very alert, for the time for relaxation is not yet there. With faith, discipline and selfless devotion to duty, there is nothing worthwhile that you cannot achieve”.

A total of 102 Under Training Officers and 13 cadets were graduated whereas 111 cadets were commissioned on the occasion. The Chief Guest awarded branch insignias to the graduating officers and Aviation Cadets and also gave away trophies among the distinction holders.

The chief guest awarded Quaid-e-Azam Banner to No 3 Squadron, the Champion Squadron of the Academy.
