Flight Lieutenant Shailendra Pratap Singh has been on the posted strength of a Helicopter Unit since November 1976. He has a record of nearly 1800 accident-free flying hours. He has flown nearly 400 hours during 1978, a major portion of which was on operational role.
During the flood relief operations in August-September, 1979, Flight Lieutenant Shailendra flew nearly 100 hours on flood relief sorties in Kanpur, Lucknow and Varanasi. As an independent detachment commander, he ensured maximum possible flying sorties to make the relief work more effective. In utter disregard to his personal comforts, he carried out his task in a purposeful manner. He also worked hard for long hours to complete his assignment.
Flight Lieutenant Shailendra Pratap Singh has thus displayed high determination, professional competence and devotion to duty of an exceptional order.
