Message from Chief of the Air Staff

PAF takes its pick of the finest young people in the land. It has now acquired new depths of human skills and initiative. Together, all branches of PAF are delivering unprecedented serviceability rates and efficient management of all resources. Poised on the threshold of tomorrow, PAF remains, as the Quaid said, "Second to None"; fully abreast with the requisite will and mechanism to live by its standards in the current millennium.
