Group Captain Sinha has proved himself as a pivot of all flying related technical activities under his command. This has aptly been proved by the all round improvement in every sphere of technical activity related to flying. Where flying task of the squadron is enhanced with the resources remaining same, the officer has had a daunting task ahead. By virtue of his exceptionally high managerial capabilities, he improved the work ethos and brought forward a synergetic approach to the problems at hand. As a result, the serviceability of fighter fleet in general and that of MiG-27 fleet in particular, improved systematically. Efficiency of his management was quite visible in the way first and second line servicing facilities of 52 Squadron was in the given time frame transferred to another location. His continual liaisoning with Air HQ, HAL and BRDs has resulted in cutting down "on the ground" time of aircraft. With his personal knowledge on Russian aircraft, he identified many testers lying at 25 ED, got them allotted to various squadrons, which resulted in considerable reduction in concessions on aircraft servicing activities.
For his dedication to service and distinguished services of a high order, the President is pleased to award "Vishisht Seva Medal" to Group Captain Mohan Prasad Sinha.
