About Us


      It gives us great pleasure to place before you this inaugural site of Air Force Association (Gujarat Branch).  The Branch has been established in 01 August 2007 with active support from AFA Head Office and HQs SWAC. 

      We have resolved to serve the community of Ex-Air Warriors settled in Gujarat to the best of our ability with emphasis on assisting those in need, building a network for mutual help, providing platform for projecting issues of common interset, spreading awareness of Indian Air Force amongst the people of Gujarat with special emphasis on motivating the youth, honouring memory of Air-Warriors who laid their life for the nation and felicitating those who have served Indian Air Force with dedication and distinction.  As a first step we have undertake a concerted drive to enroll members by writing to each retired air warrior.  However, we solicit help from all present members to spread the work and enlist as many members as possible.
