INAS 350

INAS 350, commanded by F.H. Aga, operates Sikorsky UH 3H Sea King helicopters that are all-weather, night capable and lift helicopters that would operate primarily from INS Jalashwa in support of amphibious and special forces’ operations.

A total of six UH 3H Helicopters are operated by the Squadron.

The helicopters have already been operational even before the formal commissioning. On 12 April 2009, a UH-3H flown by Cdr S L Narayan flew from Visakahaptanam to Damanjodi in Koraput district to evacuate two CISF Constables wounded in a Naxalite attack.
