Embraer aircraft were inducted into the unit in Sep 2005. Wg Cdr Sharma was totally involved in the preliminary planning and technical procurement stages of this aircraft. His boundless enthusiasm, self-drive and futuristic vision was instrumental in effective liaison with Air HQ to iron out grey areas and strike a worthwhile deal with manufacturers. On confirmation of the induction, he once again took initiative and volunteered to ferry-in the aircraft from Brazil, ensuring that the equipment and VIP fitments met the befitting WIP standards. Upon arrival of the aircraft he took on the responsibility to fly extensively and categories the pilots at the earliest. With Embraer tasking increasing exponentially, his astute management skills and thorough planning came to fore and ensured that all commitments were met with commendable standards. This has been appreciated time and again by the dignitaries. He has brilliantly dovetailed his administrative and flying duties to achieve all tasks assigned to him and the Embraer flight. Wg Cdr Sharma has always led by example in every sphere and has been a source of inspiration both to his colleagues and subordinates.
