It started life in July 1942 as RAF Station Yelahanka and was transferred to the Royal Indian Air Force (RIAF) in June 1947. The Royal was dropped later.

The Yelahanka Air Force Station is an Indian Air Force airfield in Yelahanka, Bengaluru. The main role of this airfield is to train pilots to fly transport planes.[1] This station also conducts type-conversion of navigators on the Antonov An-32.[2]

Exhibition formation fly-pasts during passing-out parades at premier training institutions such as the Air Force Academy and the Air Force Technical College are carried out routinely. In addition, the station undertakes logistics support tasks allotted by Air HQs and HQ TC. Every two odd years, Aero India, a biennial air show takes place at Yelahanka air force station. Currently Mi-8, An-32 and Dornier planes are positioned at AFS Yelahanka. It is 22 km from Bengaluru city railway station.
