PAF - Engineering

The Engineer in the PAP is no longer a behind-the-scene worker. He is very much in stride with his pilot colleagues to shoulder the combat responsibility. He plays pivotal role in maintaining and enhancing the operational efficiency of the Air Force. He leads a team of highly skilled technicians to ensure that all the weapon systems operate to their optimum capacity. A promising Engineer will also get ample facilities for higher training abroad and to carry out research and development. The training we impart is the best available and the syllabi are designed to bring out the best in you.
