For his untiring efforts the unit flew over 2700 hrs of accident free flying during his tenure and maintained a record 87% serviceability, the highest in the fleet, despite the aging fleet constraints. During this period the unit achieved an enviable Cal/lR state with 70% aircrew holding a supervisory category, which is the best Cat state in the fleet. A distinct qualitative change was brought about in the unit by introducing several innovative programmes including ~ITI first snag analysis system' resulting in an empowered and a confident JITI air warrior. The spirit-de-corps and cohesiveness within the unit personnel is seen in every activity be it on tarmac or on the social front. Wg Cdr Tejbir Singh has led the unit on all fronts and has himself flown over 1000 hrs as Commanding Officer, and at the same time dedicated himself in marshalling all resources under him with dexterity. This is evident from the numerous tech innovations undertaken by the unit. Two of them, i.e. 'Aircraft Ground Cooling System' using a simple desert cooler and 'Mobile DSS Trolley' were totally his initiatives and have been emulated by other units. Wg Cdr Tejbir was a key organiser of successive mega events - The Nagpur Air shows' held in 2007 and 2008. These air shows were executed flawlessly with his personal involvement, remarkable liaison at all levels and close supervision. By his actions, the officer has fully and justifiably stood up to any responsibility assigned to him in his capacity as the Commanding Officer. Through his keen sense of purpose and dynamic leadership, Wg Cdr Tejbir Singh and his team of air warriors achieved many major milestones in all sphere of activities. The Air Force Wives Welfare Association (AFWWA) (Regional) Thrift Shop run by the unit was turned around and has earned an all-round praise, registered unprecedented 300% growth rate over last two years and adjudged the 'Best AFWWA Shop' for two consecutive years. Under his leadership, the unit was awarded 'BEST SUPPORT UNIT' trophy of Maintenance Command for the year 2008-09 for overall excellence in all spheres of operations. For exceptional devotion to duty, Hon'ble President is pleased to award 'Vayu Sena Medal' to Wing Commander Tejbir Singh.
