From a pilot officer to the higher echelons, immensely consequential responsibilities are entrusted to the individuals. This task is accomplished through a thorough system of training, which caters for specialized knowledge about the world, military tactics, and material sciences. The training imparted to the PAF personnel from day one and onwards, throughout their career progression, is most precisely carved and tailored to make them a whole person.

The overall training system of the Pakistan Air Force can be divided into two mainstreams i.e., training of officers and training of airmen. Over the years, the training system in the PAF has evolved into a smooth and streamlined procedure, which aims to train the selected ones for air operations and ground support. Presently, large number of training institutions are functioning under the Training Branch.

Equal emphasis is given to the training of airmen. The selected candidates, inducted to serve as airmen in the PAF, are sent to the Pre-Trade Training School (PTTS), Kohat. PTTS is an institution of well-reputed stature, which imparts basic military cum academic training to the airmen of all trades. Discipline, precision and excellence in profession are the hallmarks, which govern the atmosphere at PTTS.

After passing out from PTTS the airmen are sent to various training schools where professional training concerning respective trades is imparted to them. These institutions are the School of Aeronautics, School of Electronics, Administrative Trades Training School and School of Logistics. Various specialized courses are also designed for the airmen, which enable them to have a firm hold on their profession.

To equip its personnel with appropriate knowledge and skills, the Training Branch of the PAF ensures that the responsibility of preparing the Air Warriors of Pakistan is entrusted to highly qualified, experienced and devoted instructors.
