Details :

Wg Cdr RM Sridharan took over as Commanding Officer of one of the AF Helicopter Units in Nov 88.

He was entrusted with the task of raising the unit with new aircraft and making it operational in the shortest possible time. This task, which he set about most diligently and displayed outstanding eagerness to serve and an exemplary enthusiasm in fulfilling his responsibilities. He set up the unit in the shortest possible time, imparted training to aircrew to operate in Siachen glacier.

Over the last two years, under his command, the unit has flown over 5500 hrs accident-free, out of which 3500 hrs have been flown in Siachen glacier. About 3500 Tons of load has been air dropped at various posts over the glacier. Under his able leadership and deft guidance his unit has airlifted armament, troops and essential supplies in aid to civil power during Oct/Nov 90 over inhospitable terrain and climate of J&K area.

Wg Cdr Shridharan was given the task of selecting DZs and carrying out trial, based on which the complete airlift was executed. On another occasion, the heavy equipment of Border Roads Organisation was carried across river in Arthal Area under slung. It was once again Wg Cdr Shridharan's guidance and leadership that such an extra-ordinary task was successfully completed.

For his exemplary sense of duty, leadership, able guidance and exemplary enthusiasm, the President is pleased to award Vayu Seva Medal to Wg Cdr RM Sridharan.
