Wg Cdr G Nayyar is on the posted strength of a Wing wef 23 Oct 89 and is employed as SE (M).
Wg Cdr Nayyar has been instrumental in improving and sustaining the serviceability of MiG-21 Bis fleet at this base. This he could achieve with dedicated effort and technical insight. Further, five AOG aircraft which were on ground for over two years, were also recovered during this period. As the Station Maintenance Safety Officer, he carried out regular checks of maintenance activities and also implemented some innovative ideas. A larger percentage of MT vehicles at this base are of vintage models. The maintenance of these is extremely difficult due to poor supply of spares from FOD and limited resources in the local market. Inspite of these constraints, Wg Cdr G Nayyar, by his perseverance and innovative skill has been able to achieve a high standard of MT serviceability.
The officer is trained abroad on certain type of bombs. These bombs were acquired by the IAF in the early eighties, primarily for use on Ajeet ac. Due to phasing out of Ajeets from the service, these bombs have been rendered surplus to the inventory. A service paper was submitted by Wg Nayyar recommending the use of these bombs on the MiG Variants. On the basis of the service paper submitted by Wg Cdr G Nayyar, trials have successfully been conducted by ASTE and the stores cleared for use on the MiG Variants. This achievement is considered very significant.
For his technical insight, extraordinary performance and valuable contribution to the service, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wg Cdr Nayyar.
