Details :

Squadron Leader Anil Chaudhari is on the posted strength of a Squadron of Air Force wef May 89. He is an A-2 QFI, FSL and IRIE.

During his tenure of three years in the unit, he has maintained an accident-free record and performed the duties of Flight Commander, IRIE and Sqn FSL.

After he became the first FSL on type in Feb 90, he immediately got down to the task of compiling data for calculating the firing parameters on Type. The important values of CL/Alpha for type were not available. TACDE, AF also could not provide the much needed information. Sqn Ldr Chaudhari took it on himself to work out these parameters. He resorted to using the MiG-23 figures and started correcting them after detailed analysis of results through plotted armament scores and file debriefs. His painstaking efforts bore fruits when the unit participated in the EAC Annual Gunnery Meet and was declared overall EKLAVYA champion for the year 1991-92 winning three of the four events. The calculating parameters were immediately transmitted to all type operating units so that the IAF standards could also improve.

He then got down to the task of Combat Training of the pilots. He introduced the Defensive Manoeuvering Concept on type, carried out trials and rewrote the entire briefing guide and circulated it to the type operators for Interdiction patterns, Strike Tactics and Close Air Support with 2, 3 and 4 ac missions. For his exceptional devotion to duty, the President is pleased to award Vayu Seva Medal to Sqn Ldr Anil Chaudhari.
