Details : Group Captain Partho Shankar Gangopadhyay (20284) was commissioned in the Indian Air Force as an engineer in the Aeronautical Engineering (Electronic) branch on 04 Sep 88. He is post graduate in Nuclear Science from Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, M Phil from Indian Institute of Public Administration and is an alumnus of Defence Services Staff College. In his 25 years of service he has held important appointments, which include Senior Engineering Officer of two Jaguar squadrons and Commanding Officer of a Jaguar TETTRA. Gp Capt Gangopadhyay has been the Chief Engineering Officer of Air Force Station Jamnagar since April 2012. The station with its compliment of five aircraft operating units and perennial presence of one detachment Squadron, generates quantum of flying which outscores all other bases in IAF. His acumen in planning and forecasting translated into all fleets maintaining the highest serviceability in years. He also meticulously planned proactive support, which facilitated setting up of a Jaguar Squadron at a neighbouring base and stabilised their initial maintenance issues. His adept coordinated logistical planning resulted in disposal of non moving tools and testers worth Rs. 3.87 crores in just one year. He led a core team which drew up additional checks and measures to counter and detect corrosion in time. Due to his in depth analysis on corrosion, procedures have been set in place to timely detect subsurface corrosion, at relatively inaccessible areas in Mi-8 aircraft and fighter ejection seats. He has always placed added emphasis in reorganization of training schedules and daily maintenance guidelines. As a part of same, he formulated the visual daily inspection for the Jaguar fleet and these have served as a model reference for other aircraft. Human Resource development being his core area of competence, he has motivated categorisation of maximum number of AE officers from Air Force Station Jamnagar in 2012-13, in whole of 1AF. For distinguished service of high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Partho Shankar Gangopadhyay.
