|Details :|| |
Air Marshal Trilochan Singh Brar was commissioned in the Air Force in the Flying Branch in April, 1944. During his long service in the Air Force, he has held a variety of flying and senior staff appointments at various levels. He has commanded two important air bases in the ranks of Group Captain and Air Commodore and creditably discharged his wide and varied responsibilities in regard to the deployment of bomber, maritime and transport Squadrons. During his three years tenure as Air AttachÃƒÂ© in our Embassy in France, he displayed a rare combination of professionalism and diplomacy and
successfully completed this sensitive role. As Air I at Headquarters Western Air
Command during the period preceding the Indo-Pak Conflict, 1971, he visualised the need and meticulously formulated operational plans for deployment of aircraft in the Western
Sector and for providing close air support to the Army. This planning was largely responsible for the high degree, of operational preparedness of the Command when the conflict broke out. For this distinguished performance, he was awarded Ati Vishisht Seva Medal in January, 1972.
He has subsequently held the important appointments of Senior Air Staff Officer Headquarters Central Air Command in the rank of Air Commodore and Commandant Air Force Academy in the rank of Air Vice Marshal. As Commandant, Air Force Academy,
he reviewed and updated the flying training techniques and ensured a high standard of training consistent with the requirements of flight safety. In his present appointment as Air Officer Commanding-in-Chief Central Air Command, he has enabled the Command to fulfill all its tasks relating to air maintenance and operational training despite the serious shortage of fuel and spares for the ageing aircraft. In the face of heavy odds, he has maintained high level of serviceability of aircraft enabling the command to fulfill all its operational commitments. The massive air operations undertaken by the Command for flood relief won the appreciation of all concerned including the civil authorities.
Air Marshal Trilochan Singh, Brar has thus rendered distinguished service of the most exceptional order.
