AVM Harjinder Singh also bestowed two light aircraft to the PEC. Auster Aiglet VT-DYU, which was his personal aircraft and IAF Kanpur I [BR-570], which was designed and built by him during his tenure as the AOC-in-C Maintenance Command.

After the demise of the Air Vice Marshal in 1970, the blood red colored Aiglet was donated to the college by Mrs Beant Harjinder Singh on 25th October 1989. The aircraft appears to be in great condition from the scant photos that we have seen.
