Details :

Sqn Ldr BK Sood was commissioned on 05 Jan 81 in the Engineering (Electronics) branch of Air Force and has been posted to MiG-29 Technical Flight.

Besides maintaining high aircraft serviceability and contributing effectively towards Flight and Maintenance Safety, he has a large number of innovations and modifica tions to his credit. Fire control radar of MiG-29 ac required a test bench (UDS) for testing and rectification. For these facilities, the unit had to depend upon Wing or the BRD for the maintenance of radars. Sqn Ldr Sood, with his dedicated team was able to fabricate a test bench to do the job of UDS. This resulted in saving of foreign exchange amounting to approximately one crore rupees.

Sqn Ldr Sood has attained an exceptional skill on the computers. Due to his efforts, the Wing is justifiably proud of having achieved computerisation of all the snags of the three types of ac on the Station.

For distinguished service of high order, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Sqn Ldr BK Sood.
