Details :

Wing Commander Sandip Sen has been commanding an operational squadron since September, 1968. During 1969 and 1970, the Squadron was required to complete an operational task as well as an important training assignment. At the same time, the squadron's resources of aircraft had to be heavily curtailed. That the Squadron met both these important tasks successfully is an indication of the inspiring leadership and professional competence of Wing Commander Sen. He has flown 5,678 hours including over 1,500 hours on operations. He is also an experienced flying instructor.
