NEW DELHI (PTI): Singapore's Air Force chief Major General Hoo Cher Mou arrived here on Tuesday on a three-day official tour during which he will get a first-hand account of the training pattern being followed by the Indian Air Force.

The visiting chief was accorded a Guard of Honour at Air Headquarters on Tuesday morning following which he met the Chief of the Air Staff, Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, and discussed matters of mutual interest.

The Singapore's Air Force chief has a hectic schedule lined up during his stay.

He will visit Air Force Station, Agra on Wednesday to get a first-hand account of the training pattern being followed at two of the most prestigious Air Force Establishments - the Para Troopers School (PTS) and the Mid Air Refueling Squadron (MARS), an official statement here said.

The following day he will visit Air Force Station, Kalaikunda where a team of Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) personnel is already undergoing training as part of the 'Joint Military Training' (JMT).

The annual Air Staff Talks between the air forces of India and Singapore commenced in 2006. The IAF-RSAF JMT is an annual programme that has regularly been held since 2008.

The JMT provides an ideal platform for exchange of air tactics and training philosophy to the pilots of the two countries, the statement said.
