He has to his credit over 3200 hrs of accident free flying on various operational and training aircraft. During his current tenure of 1 Ã‚Â½ years as Commandant CAW, he has incorporated significant improvements in the curriculum and conduct of courses held at CAW.

Similarly, Joint Air Warfare Course and Weapon Employment Course have been merged by altering the conduct methodology.

Training infrastructure at the College has also been upgraded and modernized.
Air Vice Marshal Venkataraman Ramamurthy lyer has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
