Details : Air Commodore Mothlampet Sabari Gireesa Menon (17035) was commissioned in the Indian Air Force as an Air Traffic Controller in the administrative branch on 29 Dec 1982. During his service, he has held the appointments of Senior Air Traffic Controller, Directing Staff at Air Traffic Control Officer's Training Establishment, CO of a Ground Controlled Approach Squadron, Chief Administrative Officer (C Adm 0) of a Station and Commandant Air Force Administrative College (AFAC).Presently, he is working as Principal Director Operations Air Traffic Services. He is an alumnus of Defence Services Staff College and National Defence College. As C Adm 0 of the first UN contingent to Sudan, he displayed great administrative acumen in setting up the IAF camp in the face of adverse and trying conditions, for which he was commended by the Vice Chief of Air Staff in 2007. During his tenure as C Adm 0, his foresight in planning and keen monitoring of the execution of works services resulted in significant improvement of infrastructure and in the quality of life. Measures initiated by him towards economy in consumption of electricity resulted in large savings in payment of tariff to the tune of Rs lilacs per month. As Commandant AFAC, he ensured smooth relocation of Centre for Leadership and Behavioral Science (CLASS) from College of Air Warfare (CAW) to AFAC in spite of severe infrastructure shortages. Numerous technical and administrative infrastructures were created to accommodate the ever-increasing strength of trainee officers. During his tenure as Commandant AFAC,the college won the trophies for "Best in Administration" and "Best Secondary AF School of IAF" consecutively for three years. As PO Ops (ATS), with his professional acumen and good liaison, he ensured that implementation of FUA was in the best interests of the IAF. All airspace issues with AAI were deftly handled, resulting in release of airspaces for a large number of IAF bases where earlier none existed. As Chairman of the Project Management Group for the MAFI project, the officer made every effect to ensure that project implementation did not get unduly delayed and that bottlenecks and impediments were addressed expeditiously. His consistent endeavour towards realization of the case for accretion of additional manpower to man joint User Airfields is soon to bear fruit the likelihood of its approval. For distinguished service of a high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Air Commodore Mothlampet Sabari Gireesa Menon.
