This onerous duty entrusted to the Sri Lanka Air force is fulfilled through the dedication and commitment by the Bases and Formations formed there under. Contributions from these Bases and Formations over the last 50 years have been of immense value to the Air Force and to the Nation and deems merit recognition similar to that of the colours awarded to the Air Force in 1976.
On the occasion of SLAF Golden Jubilee, SLAF Base Katunayake and No 1 Flying Training Wing Anuradhapura were honoured to receive the President’s Colours as the pioneer Base and Flying Formation of the Air Force.
