Air Commodore ARK Pandrangi was appointed the Air Officer Commanding of Air Force Station, Yelahanka on 24 Dec 92. On taking over he found that the success rate in initial categorisation of trainee officers of AN-32 and Avro conversion courses was not upto the desired level. He ensured that the categorisation rate improved to above 98%. Further he ensured a substantial improvement in serviceability of the AN-32, Avro and Mi-8 aircraft. In 1994, his station won the Flight Safety and Maintenance Trophy (Helicopters) instituted by HQ Training Command.
