In 2008-09, as Squadron Commander Signals at 20 Wing, he undertook number of projects including renovation of Air Traffic Control, Surveillance Radar Equipment/Ground Control Approach ops room, communication nodes etc, to improve the flying environment for safe flying.

His personal involvement, craving for best quality and able leadership proved highly inspiring for his subordinates and resulted in excellent team work.
