Speaking on the occasion, Air Vice Marshal SP Dharkar AVSM, Assistant Chief of Air Staff (Training), said, “The Breaking Point series on Discovery channel has emerged as the go-to series for all defence enthusiasts across the country. We are delighted to work with Discovery as we aim to a) inspire the youth of India to look at the Air Force as a career opportunity and b) inspire our countrymen, offering a never-seen-before insight into the life of an Air Force officer; their journey from a cadet to a Flying officer; the efforts they put in to flying the fighter jets and defend the nation when needed.”

“The Breaking Point series has clearly emerged as break through programming here in India. We are aiming to break the 2 crore unduplicated reach benchmark with Breaking Point: Indian Air Force Academy,” said, Zulfia Waris, Vice-President & Head, Premium & Digital Networks, Discovery Communications India. “The journey from civilian to earning your wings is tough and nerve wracking. Each stage of this course has its own story, its own trials and tribulations and Discovery gives you an all-access pass to witness these transformations.”
