Wing Commander Mahaveer Singh Shekhawat (17116) Aeronautical Engineering (Electronics) was commissioned in the Engineering Branch of the IAF on 13 Feb 1983. He is a post graduate in Control Engineering from IIT Madras and alumnus of Defence Services Staff College. He has worked as Senior Engineering Officer of a fighter squadron, Senior Production Engineer at 4 BRD, Deputy Director for remote sensing project (DIPAC) and as Senior Engineer (Aircraft) at 32 Wing before taking over as Chief Engineering Officer of this base.

While discharging his duties as SE (AC), he accomplished Aircraft on Ground build up of 13 MiG-27 aircraft and maintained exceptional serviceability during 'Op Parakram'. He was instrumental in implem entation of EW modification of MiG-27 aircraft.

After taking over as CEO, he took up challenging task of setting up of second line servicing facilities for the BISON aircraft. The project was handled by him in most professional manner and the facilities were set up in record time. The existing infrastructure was upgraded to house the test equipment resulting in tremendous savings to the exchequer to the tune of a crore of rupees and the servicing of the aircraft commenced well ahead of schedule. These facilities are being referred to as a model for other upcoming projects. This was well appreciated by AOCin-C HQ WAC and the Maint Branch at Air HQs.

The station was inspected by DASI after a gap of five years. He planned and guided his team to bring about all round improvement which resulted in appreciation by the inspection agency. The Tech Flight was christened as centre of excellence. His total involvement in each activity at the station is praiseworthy. Some of the suggestions rendered by him during construction of a new BPI at base, have been instrumental in making this one of the finest BPIs of Indian Air Force.

He has put in extra effort to bring up all sections under him and kept his subordinates motivated. His involvement has resulted in excellence in all fields of the maintenance and contributed in safe flying environment at the base. During his tenure there was no aircraft accident which is an achievement of high order by itself.

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