Wing Commander Aman Nautiyal (18789) F (P) was commissioned on 13 Jun 87 in the Flying Branch. In 19 years of distinguished service, he has been a Directing Staff at Tactical and Air Combat Development Establishment (TACDE) for a period of seven years, during which he instructed 25 courses, and was instrumental in the initial spade-work for conduct of Helicopter Combat Leaders Courses. Additionally, his work for the smooth induction of the MiG21 up-graded Bison aircraft into TACDE has ensured that this aircraft is performing to the best of its abilities at this establishment. He was also part of the team that ensured great success for the IAF during Exercise Cope India-I (2005) with the USAF, wherein he was head of the White Force.

He is a graduate of the Defence Services Staff College where he stood overall second. He also underwent Fighter Combat Leader course where he stood first and won all the trophies at the end of the course. A highly experienced fighter pilot, he has more than 2350 h of accident/incident free flying to his credit. He was commended by the CAS in 2002.

Wg Cdr Aman Nautiyal was appointed the CO of a Frontline Fighter Sqn on 01 Jul 05. Till date, in spite of depleting seniority levels in the MiG-29 fleet, in terms of pilots, engineering officer and airmen, he has ensured good operational orientation of his squadron through comprehensive, meaningful and focused flying and ground training, while maintaining the highest standards of flight safety. By providing good leadership and harmonious functioning, he has ensured high morale and motivation and a positive vibe which bodes well for the future of his Sqn personnel. During the inspection by Directorate of Air Staff Inspections from Air HQs in April 2006, apart from displaying exceptional performance in the missions led by him, the Sqn was assessed 'Above Average' on the ground, and 'Average Plus' overall.
