The Sarang helicopter pilots from the Indian Air Force delivered an impressive team performance during the show, skillfully maneuvering indigenous Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH) Dhruvs manufactured by Hindustan Aeronautics.

Flying four HAL Dhruv helicopters, the team executed a range of maneuvers, including loops, rolls, inverted flight, intricate formations, and showcased their expertise in low-level flying. The Sarang team, recognized globally as one of the premier helicopter display teams, received enthusiastic applause from the crowd at the Dubai Air Show.
