Details :

Flight Lieutenant Ram Chander Chhabra is posted to Air Force Squadron since 19 Jun 89 and has been functioning as the Detachment Commander of one of the flights.

The most outstanding achievement of the officer is in bringing up the servicing facilities of CR&SS (Control Repair and Servicing Section). The erstwhile CR&SS hangar was declared unsafe for use by the MES. A make shift arrangement was to be made to house the CR&SS and its servicing bays. Flt Lt Chhabra took upon himself the task, converted an old unused hangarette for use by the CR&SS. He set up the servicing bays once again in make shift rooms. Without awaiting for the support of MES, he with the drive and initiative repaired the rooms using the aircraft technicians available with him.

Inspite of the fact that almost fortnight was lost in shifting the hangar and its bays, the officer planned and controlled the aircraft production commendably by motivating his men into long hours of work. The Flight has completed 100/200 hours servicing of a large number of aircraft and carried out major rectification on many aircraft in the last 6 months.

For his outstanding technical skill, administrative ability, innovative ideas and hard work, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Flt Lt RC Chhabra.
