INDIAN NAVAL AIR EN­CLAVE AT SANTA CRUZ IN­AU­GU­RATED

SP's NavalForces - - NEWS -

Vice Ad­mi­ral Girish Luthra, FOC-in-C West­ern Naval Com­mand, in­au­gu­rated the Indian Naval Air En­clave, Santa Cruz (NAE Scz) at Santa Cruz, Mum­bai on Fe­bru­ary 1, 2017.

This is a sig­nif­i­cant devel­op­ment from the point of view of naval op­er­a­tions since it now pro­vides the Indian Navy ca­pa­bil­ity to stage through all types of fixed-wing air­craft held in the naval in­ven­tory in­clud­ing the highly po­tent and ver­sa­tile Boe­ing P8I long range mar­itime re­con­nais­sance air­craft. This gives a ma­jor boost to the sur­veil­lance and of­fen­sive mea­sures on the ar­eas of in­ter­est in the West­ern Seaboard.
