Group Captain PPS Sandhu was commissioned in the Engineering Branch on 14 Jan 71. He has excelled himself exceedingly well in varied aspects of his profession. He set up overhaul lines of AI 20M and TV-2-117A engines at No. 3 Base Repair Depot. He has been the Senior Technical Officer of a MiG-23 BN squadron. An alumnus of Defence Services Staff College, he was specially selected as the leader of IAF Training Team in Botswana. He was appointed Chief Engineering Officer of Air Force Station, Hindon in Feb 95.

At Air Force Station, Hindon, he improved Aircraft serviceability to the highest in the fleet.

He also effected considerable saving by manufacturing the air intake blankings in station workshop. He extended his professional knowledge by recovering a large number of unserviceable missiles with indigenous repairs thereby saving foreign exchange.

For distinguished services of a high order, the President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Gp Capt Parminder Pal Singh Sandhu.
