HYDERABAD (PTI): Army Chief General Bipin Rawat will attend the combined graduation parade marking the completion of pre-commissioning training of Indian Air Force flight cadets on June 17 at Air Force Academy Dundigal in Hyderabad.

The Chief of Army Staff, who will be the chief guest and reviewing officer of the passing out parade, will confer the 'President's Commission' to 120 graduating trainees of various branches including 25 women trainees, a defence release said Tuesday.

The ceremony includes, besides granting the 'President's Commission' on behalf of the President, the presentation of 'Wings and Brevets' to the flight cadets on their successfully completing flying/navigation training respectively, it said.
