Wing Commander KVV Iyer was commissioned on 25 Jul 1977 in the Engineering Branch. A dynamic officer he brought laurels to Air Force as a member of Seventh Scientific Expedition to Antarctica in 1987. He has also excelled in the field of sports by representing IAF in the Inter Services Cricket Championships for five years. He was appointed Commanding Officer of No. 5 Type Training Conversion Unit in May 92.
Wg Cdr KVV Iyer assumed the command of No 5 TTCU when it was in its nascent stage. This training institute did not have any training aids and was confined only to classroom lectures and training notes. He recognised the necessity for much needed training aids and set about designing and fabricating various mockup displays of Hydr aulic, Fuel, Pneumatic and Air-conditioning systems of Mi-26 helicopter from obsolete AN-12 spares and local resources thus effecting savings of enormous amounts of foreign exchange. The operational requirement of aerial dropping by Mi-26 was not possible till 1995 due to technical problems.
Wg Cdr Iyer, with his innovative mind and vast experience on helicopters, was successful in designing and executing the much needed modification without compromising flight safety.
For distinguished services of a high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wg Cdr KVV lyer.
