The highlights of his command include, conduct of the first ever fighter detachment at a non-fighter base, three heavy armament detachments, exceptional performances in Exercise Eklavya and flawless execution of the Republic Day and Air Force Day Flypasts. The Squadron performed extremely well in all three spheres during inspection by the Directorate of Air Staff Inspection in the year 2014. In this pursuit for operational excellence, the officer led his Squadron from the front wherein he himself flew 740 hours and performed we1in Eklavya 2013. Being a Test Pilot, the officer was called upon to undertake several important trials during his Command tenure.
