The Indian Air Force’s Sarang aerobatic team is all set to showcase its spectacular aerobatics manoeuvres at the Singapore Airshow 2024 being held here next week. The five-day mega gathering from February 20-25 at the Changi Exhibition Centre will witness over 1,000 participating companies from more than 50 countries and regions, organisers Experia said on Sunday.

A team of 71 personnel of the Indian Air Force’s (IAF) Sarang Helicopter Display Team will participate in the mega event with five Advanced Light Helicopters (ALH) also known as ‘Dhruv’.

The ‘Dhruv’ helicopter, designed and conceived by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, is an all-weather, multi-mission capable helicopter. It features rigid, hingeless rotors making it highly manoeuvrable and suitable for military roles.

The variant of ALH flown by the Sarang team i ALH MK-I. The other variants are ALH MK-II, and ALH MK-III and the latest variant is ALH MK-IV, an armed version, said the Defence Ministry in announcing the IAF participation at the Singapore show.

The Sarang Helicopter Display Team was formed in 2003 and it is noteworthy that their very first international public performance was in 2004, at the Asian Aerospace Show in Singapore itself.

Initially formed and raised as a three-helicopter formation, the Sarang team now boasts of a thrilling five-helicopter display and has performed over 1,200 displays at more than 385 venues all around the globe. This year’s lineup is extensive, with 90 per cent of the top 20 global aviation companies in attendance; including well-known exhibitors such as Airbus, AVIC, BAE Systems, Boeing, Bombardier, COMAC, Dassault, GE Aerospace, General Dynamics, Honeywell, L3Harris, Leonardo, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Rolls-Royce, RTX, Safran, ST Engineering, Textron Aviation, and Thales; making the event a truly global gathering. Moreover, there will be 16 country pavilions, which include China, the Czech Republic and Korea being there for the first time.

Experia Managing Director Leck Chet Lam said, “As the aviation sector returns with a strong growth trajectory, the global platform and vibrant marketplace that Singapore Airshow offers will be critical as the industry seeks the solutions, ideas and partners that will help it navigate the challenges ahead.

“With over 1,000 participating companies and more than 50,000 trade visitors expected, we’ve been mindful to ensure that our programming also offers attendees the opportunity to engage with industry thought leaders in key discussions and to that end our AeroForum series has been curated to delve into the areas of advanced air mobility, sustainability as well as international co-operation,” he said.

AeroForum, Singapore Airshow’s thought-leadership platform, will anchor the event’s commitment to sustainability, diving deep into the industry’s most pressing issues.

In collaboration with renowned consultancy McKinsey & Company, the Sustainable Aviation Forum brings together two panels of experts including business leads from Airbus, Boeing, Cathay Pacific and Neste to explore the challenges and opportunities of achieving net-zero emissions in the skies.
