KOCH (PTI): In a first of its kind, three pilots were awarded 'wings' on successful completion of the basic Dornier Conversion Course during an impressive ceremonial parade at INS Garuda, the Naval Air Station here.

The ceremony thus witnessed the transition of the young officers into pilots of Indian Navy's formidable maritime reconnaissance arm, a Navy press release said here on Wednesday.

Rear Admiral K Ravikiran, Admiral Superintendent of the Yard, NSRY (Kochi) reviewed the parade and awarded the 'wings' to passing out officers.
