Indian pilots taking to Rafale jets ‘was amazing’: French Air Force’s Chief of Staff


Indian pilots taking to Rafale jets during the Indo-French Garuda VI exercise was “amazing,” according to General Philippe Lavigne, the Chief of Staff of the French Air Force.

“It was amazing…After two or three flights it feels very comfortable and the feedback I`ve gotten from the squadron says `Wow.` It`s a combat-proven aircraft and the interface is very is nice and clear so it eases the pilot…I think it`s a mix between a very good, experienced pilot and very good aircraft which matched so well,” Lavigne told reporters here on Friday.

Held from July 1 to July 12 at Mont-de-Marsan, Garuda VI is a tactical Indo-French exercise aimed at enhancing the interoperability level of the French and Indian crews in air defence and ground attack missions. Read More
