Yelahanka Air Force Station, vital cog in training pilots

It is easily an occasion for a double celebration on this deceptively calm, green sprawl on the busy NH7, but the air is subdued. Overhead on the campus, an occasional steel‐grey helicopter whirrs about. Below, men and women in blue go about their businesses in buildings that are sheathed in tranquil blue and white. When you visit the place outside the riotous two‐yearly Aero India extravaganza, everything about Air Force Station Yelahanka, located some 20 km north of Bangalore city, belies the dangerous times it lives.
