Details :

Wing Commander Unnikrishnan Nair is on the posted strength of Air Headquarters Communication Sqn with effect from 08 October 84 and is performing the duties of Senior Engineering officer.

Because of his past experience and profound knowledge, Wg Cdr Nair was specially selected and posted to the premier VIP Squadron to fulfill one of the most challenging and arduous tasks which entails maintenance and upkeep of three variants of transport aircraft viz. Boeing-737, Chitra and Pratap Helicopter. He showed exemplary zeal, enthusiasm, man-management technique and an uncanny sense of analytical frame of mind to identify problem prone areas in advance and resolve them meticulously and systematically from grass root levels.

While maintaining a very high degree of aircraft serviceability, he took a special interest to incorporate certain modifications in Boeing-737, Chitra and Pratap helicopter. To quote a few instances, he designed and developed a dry galley for both Boeing-737 and Chitra aircraft, a compact baggage hold for Pratap helicopter and an improved call system for Chitra aircraft. These modifications were appreciated immensely by the VVIP/ VIPs.

For his utmost sincerity, dedication, devotion, determination, sense of purpose and courage of conviction, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Unnikrishnan Nair.
