Wing Commander Sukhchain Singh (15808) Aeronautics Engineering (Electronics) has been posted at a major fighter base since 14 June 1996 as the Senior Engineer (Aircraft). During last nineteen years of his service he has had a rich experience of aircraft maintenance. He has been the STO of a fighter squadron.

He is a thorough professional and has in depth knowledge of all the aircraft systems and the associated support services. He has demonstrated exceptional ingenuity and initiative in the recovery of five fighter aircraft which were on AOG for more than two years. He also directed and motivated technicians to recover the long unserviceable testers and test benches. An aircraft simulator had been unserviceable for last two years. Though untrained and unfamiliar with the system, he motivated the repair team and recovered the Simulator in a record time of three months. This singular achievement has saved valuable foreign exchange and has made the Simulator available for operational training of the pilots.

Wing Commander Sukhchain Singh is also responsible for design and fabrication of an automatic voltage card for the Ground Power Unit of the aircraft. This hard to acquire component was locally manufactured and used to recover the unserviceable starting trolleys. Anti Collision Light of the aircraft were being despatched abroad for repair and were being, categorised non-repairable at the repair agency. He devised a completely new state of art electronic circuit to recover these assemblies. Ten such locally fabricated assemblies are flying on the aircraft. This has also saved valuable foreign exchange.

Wing Commander Sukhchain Singh is highly professional, deeply devoted to the cause of service and is an officer with a zeal to innovate. For his singular devotion to the service, exceptional professional knowledge and service of very high order, the Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vishisht Seva Medal' to Wing Commander Suckchain Singh.
