Group Captain Krishan Kumar Sangar, Flying (Pilot), is Commanding a Helicopter Unit since October, 1981. He was appointed Mi-8 Task Force Commander during an operational exercise somewhere in the Northern Sector. A variety of loads some of which had never been airlifted before, had to be dropped by Helicopters. The operations had to be carried out in an extremely hostile, snow bound terrain under marginal weather conditions. During this Operation, Group Captain Sangar achieved many firsts to his credit and was able to drop rations and stores at places located at elevation higher than 17,000 ft. On the 3rd June, 1984, while dropping an Arctic Hut at a dropping Zone, he had to fly his aircraft to its absolute limits to avoid any damage to the hut. This was possible due to his professional skill and sound understanding of the aircraft.
Group Captain Krishan Kumar Sangar thus displayed courage, professional competence, determination and devotion to duty of a high order.
