|Details :|| |
Squadron Leader Viswanath Venkataramani (4970) General Duties (Pilot) has been the flight commander of a transport squadron since May 1967. During this period the squadron carried out nearly 18,000 hours of flying which was possible only because of his foresight planning and timely procurement of the required spares. He was also able to get the devoted co-operation of the repair and servicing personnel with his tactful ways.
Besides his operational commitments, being the only Q.F.I, he was also responsible for the flying training of a large number of raw pilots. He has worked with devotion, undeterred by aircraft un-serviceability and lack of other instructional staff, and has been able to prepare 20 pilots or categorization/ upgrading in a period of two years. In so doing, he has put in nearly 3,000 hours of instructional flying without an incident.
