Bidar Air Force Station

The Indian Air Force operates the Air Force Academy that operates Kiran Mk II trainers while the Hawk Operational Training Squadron (HOTS) operates BAE Hawk Advanced jet trainers Bidar is also base for the Surya Kiran, the aerobatics demonstration team of the IAF. Bidar has been an IAF training base since the early 1960s but was remodelled and refurbished for the arrival of the Hawks . The runway was extended to 9,000 feet and new facilities for aircraft and engine maintenance and testing were built.[2]

Planned Expansion

The Government of Karnataka was to extend full co-operation and support to the Indian Air Force / Airports Authority of India (AAI) in developing this airport for civilian use and to acquire additional land, if required, for development of civil enclave infrastructure facilities.[3] Bidar Airport is awaiting a No Objection Certificate from the Rajiv Gandhi International Airport (GHIAL) in Hyderabad, which is operated and maintained by the GMR Group. An exclusivity clause in the concession agreement signed by the Union government and GMR to develop Hyderabad airport forbids any commercial airport within 150 km radius of GHIAL.[4]
