Conversion and Training Squadron
Date Raised : 1948-04-01 Disbanded : 1956-12-31 Location : Agra
Initially formed as a conversion and training squadron at Agra in 1948, the Units moved over to Begumpet in 1957 and was renamed as Transport Training Wing (TTW). In 1963 after the Sino -Indian conflict, the necessity for expanding training on transport aircraft became imperative. To facilitate this requirement; existing TTW was retained at Begumpet and No.2 TTW was established at Yelahanka, a suburb of Bangalore. Here, an airfield of world war II vintage was already in existence. This deserted airfield was recommissioned after necessary repairs on August I, 1963 and began functioning under the command of Gp Capt PL Dhawan. On January 1, 1968 both the TTW s were merged to form a single TTW at Yelahanka. Later, TTWs was renamed as Air Force Station, Yelahanka. 5 Packets of C&T Flt were transferred to 12 Sqn in Jan 1955.
