Pakistan Army Aviation 1947-2007
Army Aviation Started its journey as Number 1 Air Observation post (OP) Flight, Royal Pakistan Air Force (RPAF) in 1947 with four fabric covered Auster aircraft. These were left at Lahore Airport as Pakistan' s share by the British 659 Air OP Squadron. Pakistan Army did not have any pilot or technician to handle these machines, as such help was sought from the RPAF. I recall with gratitude the help and assistance provided by the RPAF in those formative years. The two Air Marshals, Asghar Khan and Nur Khan, deserve a special mention in this regard. Pakistan Army was very fortunate to receive its first Pakistani pilot in shape of Captain Azmat Baksh Awan, who was the "Pioneer Aviatior" of Pakistan Army in the true sense and who played a significant role in the grooming and development of Army Aviation for a long time.
