The Flight had a modest beginning on 15 Nov 72 with the formation at INS Circars with one Chetak helicopter. It was shifted to INS Dega as the strength of helicopters grew. Over the last five decades, the Flight has undertaken a myriad of successful naval operations in logistics support, cargo operations and armament role besides saving lives through Search and Rescue (SAR) and Casualty/ Medical Evacuation.
