    SBTF is situated 30km away from Panji, capital of Goa. It is first of its kind in Asia and third of its kind in world. It is build will collaboration with our old ally Russia. Currently it is being used for training of mig29k and later will be used for testing and training of naval LCA Tejas. Its landing and taking off features is replica of INS Vikramaditya
    the project was managed by ADA with several agencies including Goa Shipyard Limited and strictly under supervision of russian specialist.
    SBTF will help to test naval aircrafts in India in less cost and in lesser time as cost of transport and time to transport will be deducted.
