Details :

Air Commodore Dilip Shankar Jog was commissioned in the Flying Branch of the Air Force in October, 1953. He successfully commanded a station and two squadrons and did a tenure in Directorate of Staff Inspection. He is a qualified Flying Instructor. He has a total of 4422 flying hours to his credit. In his present assignment he has flown 149 hours. He has been in command of a large flying station since January, 1979. His units include various types of sophisticated aircraft such as Canberras, MiGs, and Cheetahs. It was by his analytical approach to problems and his ingenuity to make optimum utilisation of his available resources that he made it possible to achieve operational status within a very short period. Many of the problems associated with achieving such tasks were solved by utilising required facilities available in one form or the other by the units functioning under his command. Himself a hardworking and dedicated officer, he expects similar standards from his officers and men and always goes out of his way to guide and train them to attain that standard. He maintains cordial relations with his Army and civilian colleagues.

Air Commodore Dilip Shankar Jog has thus rendered distinguished service of an exceptional order.
