Hakimpet Air Force Station (Hakimpet AFS) is an Indian Air Force (IAF) base under the Training Command. It is located 25 kilometres north of Hyderabad Central Nampally Railway Station, 18km form North of Secunderabad Railway Junction in the state of Telangana. It houses the Fighter Training Wing, the Helicopter Training School, No. 43 Equipment Depot and ancillary units.[1] There is one runway, aligned east-west (09-27), of 7,384 feet (2,251 m) length x 150 feet (46 m) width.

History

Hakimpet AFS was used during the Second World War as a transit airfield by the Royal Air Force. The Nizam of Hyderabad never acceded power following Indian independence until after Operation Polo. Hakimpet AFS fell into disuse.[2] The Conversion and Training Unit (CTU) was established in 1951 to provide Fighter Conversion Training to newly commissioned pilots in the IAF. CTU was renamed as the Jet Training Wing (JTW) in 1958 after the phase out of prop aircraft. In June 1964 it was merged with No. 2 JTW (based in Bidar) and was renamed as Fighter Training Wing. Hakimpet AFS was elevated to 'Air Force Station' status in December 1984. The Station Museum was established in 2001.[3]
