The Indian Air Force (IAF) has been facing a number of critical issues in recent years, which have been highlighted by the air chief. The main problems include a shortage of pilots, a lack of spare parts, and a lack of modernisation.

The IAF has been struggling to keep up with the demand for pilots, with a current shortfall of around 500. This has been exacerbated by a high attrition rate, with around 100 pilots leaving the IAF each year. The lack of spare parts has also been a major issue, with the IAF having to rely on second-hand or refurbished parts. This has led to a number of accidents, including the crash of an MiG-29 fighter jet in February this year.

The IAF has also been lagging behind in terms of modernisation. While the Indian Army and Navy have been investing in new equipment, the IAF has been stuck with outdated aircraft. This has been a major concern for the government, especially in the wake of the recent tensions with Pakistan.

The air chief has highlighted these critical issues in a recent report, and has called for urgent action to address them. Otherwise, the IAF will continue to face serious problems in the years to come.
