|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Kuldip Singh Bhatty (8206) Flying (Pilot) has been on the posted strength of a Pechora Squadron since 09 Feb 87 and has been Commanding Officer of the Squadron since then.
The Squadron was declared Non-Operational by Director of Air Staff Inspection in Oct 86 with adverse comments on all aspects of its functioning. Wg Cdr KS Bhatty was in an unenviable position of taking over such a non-operational Squadron, that too during Red Alert. Wg Cdr KS Bhatty, having taken over the Squadron, brought it operationally to a level befitting the prevailing Alert Situation in a very short time.
With his exceptional level of professional knowledge, high stamina, zeal and enthusiasm, Wg Cdr KS Bhatty regardless of his personal problems and interests, concen trated on the Squadron operation preparedness from all angles and inspired all officers and men placed under highly successful live firing by the Squadron Combat Team in 1987. Further, under his guidance and supervision the serviceability state of squadron specialist vehicles and Common User Vehicles improved to their highest, having been graded as 'Exceptional' and 'Very Good' respectively by Command Inspection Teams.
For his sincerity, dedication to service, exemplary performance and good administrative skills, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Kuldip Singh Bhatty.
