Details :

Wing Commander Tejinder Pal Singh (16781) Flying (Pilot) was commissioned on 04 Jun 1982 in the Flying branch of the IAF. During his 22 years of service he has held important appointments which include Deputy Director of Air Staff Inspection and Commanding Officer of a Squadron. He has undergone Fighter Strike Leader (FSL) Course at Tactics and Combat Development Establishment (TACDE), Advance Electronic Warfare course in UK and Staff Course (ACSC) Maxwell Air Force Base, Montgomery (USA). He has been commended by the AOC-in-C. Presently, he is posted to Air HQ wef 08 Oct 02 as Joint Director Air Staff Inspection (Flying).

Wg Cdr Singh is hard working, very systematic, and possesses a keen eye for detail. Despite the rigorous schedule during inspection visits, he is able to complete all flying and inspection demands well in time. His level of integrity is extremely high and he can be relied upon to give sound advice on all occasions, sometimes even at the cost of personal disadvantage.

He has been instrumental in closely monitoring the performance of weak aircrew of the IAF, almost single-handedly in the Directorate; in fact he has taken this up as a personal crusade. His capacity for hard work, mostly well beyond the call of duty, and with utter disregard to personal comfort or personal commitments, is an example for others to emulate.

For his distinguished service of high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Tejinder Pal Singh.
