He has commanded a fighter Sqn and held important staff appointments at Air HQs in the Ops Branch. The officer is now posted as Chief Operations Officer of a large fighter base. During the last ten months, since he has taken over as the COO of this busy and hectic base, he has contributed immensely in enhancing operational efficiency of the station. He was actively involved in successful hosting of two large scale flying exercises at this base. The first was bilateral Indo - French flying exercise Garuda V, and the second being the pan-Air Force EW workshop, wherein large number of aircraft from eight different Sqns operated from the base. During the exercise, he was actively involved in the formulation of new SOPs and instructions on ECM/ECCM for the IAF.A large number of outstation commitments were under taken by the base despite many constraints. The officer with his meticulous planning, keen initiative and thorough involvement ensured safe operations and all these commitments were undertaken without any compromise on the routine tasking of the local units. His undaunted involvement in fulfilling demanding tasks and simultaneously achieving the routine Op requirements of the large number of combat units is worth a mention. In a short span of two months after taking over, the officer contributed immensely to enhance the Op capability of the base. The station was assessed 'High Average' in Ops by DASI and was adjudged as the best operational station of SWAC for the year 2014. He also played a pivotal role in the Presidential Standards Parade (PSP) hosted by the station in the month of Mar 2015. Apart from the Presidential Parade that he supervised, being second in command in the station, he was also actively involved in all the other events held towards the PSP. For distinguished service of a high order, Hon'ble President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Group Captain Ajveer Singh Minhas.
