Wing AF is a base where six different types of aircraft operate and hence Senior Engineers (ac) tasks are very demanding and challenging. His work focus and philosophy have provided for a safe maintenance environment that has bettered production from CR & SS to enable enhanced operational task. Under his guidance, the SWAC Comn Flt started its Check I servicing of AVRO aircraft in house whereas previously, this activity was undertaken at A F Stn Palam.
Wing Commander Newlay has designed and fabricated a Compressor Washing Rig facilitating periodic washing of Compressor blades of R-25 engine, which HAL is yet to provide.
In the month of Aug 96, an unserviceable and disused Spiros compressor was located at this base, which was made serviceable within three months.
Wing Commander S K Newlay has developed and fabricated a Micropod for SARPP film reading and is in use at 32 Wing, AF. He is also developing a test equipment for throttle packet flow check for the MIG-21 variant.
His very professional competence often renders him useful to HQ SWAC where he is often summoned to solve complex problems. On one such occasion, he was instrumental in saving three R-25 aeroengines from premature withdrawal saving the exchequer approximately Rs 20-25 lakhs. More importantly, he ensured availability of aeroengines, which are otherwise quite scarce, for operational use.
For distinguished service of exceptional order, the President is pleased to award "Vishisht Seva Medal" to Wing Commander S K Newlay.
