For the first time, the fly-past will carry 75 Indian Air Force helicopters flying in various directions. This year marks the Azadi of Amrit Mahotsav or the 75th year of Indian independence.

Vintage and current aircraft / helicopters such as Rafale, Sukhoi, Jaguar, Mi-17, Sarang, Apache and Dakota, will feature a variety of designs, including Rahat, i -Meghna, Eklavya, Trishul, Tiranga, Vijay and Amrit.

Wing Commander Khushboo Gupta was appointed to the IAF as a helicopter pilot in June, 2007. He has extensive experience in flying in the North East and Ladakh areas, including Siachen Glacier, the world’s largest military base. He is a Qualified Flight Trainer and alumnus of Defense Services Staff College, Wellington. Born and raised in Delhi, he attended Montfort Senior Secondary School. Twelve years later, he began his flight training at Cessna at Safdarjung airport in Delhi, after clearing his student pilot license tests. He graduated from the University of Birmingham with a BA (Hons) in tourism and business administration. Upon his return to India, he applied to join the IAF. He resigned from the SSB and joined the training in Dundigal, Hyderabad, in January 2006.

I had always been very interested in flying, and I was thinking about becoming a pilot.

However, I had the opportunity to join the Indian Air Force flying branch and I thought, why not? Being part of the defense force, wearing uniforms and serving the nation is your joy.

The top lesson is that being a soldier taught me
that compassion, empathy, gratitude, hard work and the right attitude are important. The Air Force has taught me that hard work is the key to success. And the fact that adversity lies in the opportunity. The Air Force taught me that we have to take responsibility for our actions and deliver each time. There should be no excuses.

My journey starts early in the morning with a weather forecast around 7am.
This is followed by information on the unit, including flight profile details, duration, emergency management management, etc. The length of the daily flight time depends on the work being done and may be up to six hours. My evenings are usually free to play with my dogs and get ready for the next day’s flight. I always make sure I go to bed early, so I can be fresh the next day.

Being a helicopter pilot in the IAF is well worth it.
This job offers a great deal of job satisfaction and job opportunities. I love you and I enjoy what I do, and my work takes me to places where otherwise it will not be accessible to everyone. Since my husband is also a helicopter pilot in the IAF, our lives revolve around our work all the time.

Many women should join the Air Force because it is the best organization to have.

The workplace allows for personal growth, there is great satisfaction in the workplace, and is considered only suitable for the job. Also, you get to attend various military and professional courses to collect and improve knowledge.

I would like to tell women all over India to stand up,
dream and plan one step at a time. And keep marching… until you make your dreams come true.

My vision of freedom is a place that gives me a place to grow as a person,
and, at the same time, make me responsible for the overall growth of our country and the IAF.

Authority is one of the most important factors in the decision-making process
to do. Jurisdiction is the concept that goes to the very root of the emerging lis
determination between groups. It is generally understood as the court’s decision
charge or issue a declaration in accordance with the basic administrative law. It is described as Coram
Judge. It relates to a position outside the court system and imposes authority
court within the system. Unusual jurisdiction has been given to the court below
Article 226 of the Constitution of India refers to an area with special constitutional authority i.e.
the power of the court to adjudicate a class of acts by excluding other courts.
Total jurisdiction of the court outside the area, related to the cause of the action or parties
and may raise a question about the extent of the power to be exercised by a court
in respect of a dispute arising out of particular exercise of its legal authority.
Apart from this constitutional mandate, it is also added by jurisdictio
emanata. The court while exercising such administrative power will generally increase the scope
its power to do justice between the parties until such application is made
the authority is not contrary to the law and complies with the established rules of
the constitution. Boni judicis est amliare jurisdictionem is under
legal restrictions and especially discretio est discernere per legem quid sit justum.
This is the true scope of the use of force in relation to administrative matters. I
the court may increase its jurisdiction only if it is legally permitted
nor is it above the constitutional authority of the stated law. Authority
understanding is the science of understanding the distinction between shadow and matter,
between equality and colored glasses and hypocrisy. Interference will not be possible
it is necessary while in the end, it can be used properly especially when it breaks
state law. The powers conferred on the legal entity shall never be released. It
they should be used in accordance with the law and directed with due consideration not
unimportant things. If any power is given to any authority so that that power can act
to perform its functions in the citizenry or in society as a whole, such authority may not refuse
exercise those powers and the obligation to comply with applicable legal requirements
be compulsory. When such obligations or legal provisions are violated, i
The court will increase its jurisdiction as justice will so require. When the law refers to

The magistrate must be done at his discretion, the law is to be done by noise
visually and legally. It is the power of determination within the limits allowed by
good legal rules and regulatory and administrative matters.
Wisdom is described primarily in the justice system
