How IAF’s Disha motivates students to join Air Force

NEW DELHI: To make students aware and motivate them for joining the armed forces, the Indian Air Force‘s Directorate of Induction and Selection in a Holistic Approach (DISHA) cell developed a student interaction programme called ‘Induction Publicity Exhibition Vehicle’ (IPEV).
Through the IPEV, the IAF carries out awareness drives across the country. The prospective candidates not only get to know first-hand information about the force in detail but also get their doubts regarding the force and entries addressed by the serving airmen.
The IPEV is a modified Volvo bus which has been transformed into a mobile exhibition on wheels. The IPEV contains the key facets related to the Indian Air Force (like miniature models of aircraft, simulators and photographs of officers) and the career prospects that are available thereof.
The IPEV is divided into three zones – Reception Zone, Simulator Zone and Flying Clothing Zone.
The reception zone contains LED panels where motivational videos of IAF are played and also contains self-interactive touch screen information kiosks for accessing career information like how to join, eligibility, growth opportunities etc.
The simulator zone provides a virtual experience of the various operations of IAF through VR headsets. It consists of a pilot seat, navigation system, and a particular direction handle to give a cockpit-like experience to the aspirants and students.
The Flying Clothing Zone contains replica models of aircraft in the inventory of the IAF, including Fighter planes, Transport aircraft and Helicopters, among others.
Besides IPEV, the DISHA Cell also undertakes all the recruitment processes, the latest updates on exams like AFCAT, downloading the admit card, career counselling etc.
Aspirants can explore a multitude of career prospects listed on the DISHA Cell website or follow their official social media handles for all the information they need to become part of the Indian Air Force.
