Details : Group Captain Satinder Singh Rehal (20862) was commissioned in the Indian Air Force as an engineer in the Aeronautical Engineering (Electronics) branch in Sep 1990. He is a post graduate from lIT Delhi and an alumnus of DSSC. He has held important appointments including Senior Engineering Officer of a Jaguar Squadron, Group Director in Project Monitoring Team for the induction of Light Combat Aircraft and Senior Engineer at frontline IAF bases. For his meritorious service, he has been commended by Chief of Air Staff in 1999 and AOC-in-C Western Air Command in 2006. Group Captain Satinder Singh Rehal has been the Chief Engineering Officer at a premier base since May 2013. To support the extensive flying undertaken by the base and to improve the capability of the fighter squadrons, his major thrust has been on reducing the number of aircraft on ground. He has taken a number of initiatives that have energized the maintenance setup towards innovation and self help. Design of Lefa Cable tester for IAF, Weapon Loading Trolley for Jaguar and redesigned Integrated Pechora Combat Simulator have not only improved maintenance efficiency but also galvanized personnel towards seeking indigenous solutions. His drive towards shedding obsolete and surplus inventory has led to successful evacuation of salvage six times in last two years accruing Rs 1.77 crores to the exchequer. In the process of improving the quality of maintenance and capability of technical personnel, he placed added emphasis in reorganization of training schedules and daily maintenance guidelines. In the last six months itself this initiative has resulted in ISO Certification for Base Logistics Section, upgradation of category of ten maintenance officers and successful conduct of major workshops on Jaguar, Adour Engine and Electronic Warfare Systems. For distinguished service of a high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Satinder Singh Rehal.
