Ambala Air Force Station is an air base east of the urban Ambala area. It is used for military and government flights. It is also used to fly in politicians and other key people.


This air base was first built in 1948 following the independence of India. It is also the home to the No. 5 and No. 14 Squadrons of Jaguar aircraft, No. 23 Squadron of MiG-21bis and No. 24 Squadron of Su-30.

The Indian Air Force base at Ambala was attacked by the Pakistani Air Force in both the 1965 and 1971 wars. In 1965, the Pakistanis struck Ambala and reportedly destroyed some 25 Indian planes just after they had returned from missions. But the PAF did not take the responsibility because of the non-availability of night bombing

The Flying Instruction School, or simply known as FIS was formed here in 1948 but was resituated to Tambaram near Chennai in 1954.
