"Top commanders including IAF Chief Arup Raha discussed the operational preparedness of the commands and air bases under them," an IAF official said.
The bi-annual Commanders' Conference also discussed the need for further strengthening flight safety mechanism in the force, they said.
A C-130J aircraft, considered to be a strategic asset by the force, had crashed last Friday near Gwalior while performing a low-level flying exercise, killing five personnel, including four officers.
Representatives of the HAL, which is the biggest supplier of the IAF, are expected to make a presentation before the conference tomorrow and discuss their ongoing plans and projects for the force.
IAF is involved in a tussle with HAL over procurement of a basic trainer aircraft where the PSU is favouring the development of such a plane indigenously whereas the former wants it to be procured from abroad.
On the last day of the conference, Army Chief and Chairman, Chiefs of Staffs Committee Gen Bikram Singh is expected to brief the IAF brass where they are likely to discuss jointness of operations.
