Details :

Group Captain Atma Singh is on the posted strength of an Air Force Station since 14 Oct 89 as Chief Engineering Officer.

He was posted to this Station after the induction of a new Jet trainer HJT-16 MK II at this Flying Training Establishment. The teething problems in the newly inducted jet and the availability of critical spares was unsatisfactory and the experience of the technicians/supervisors was just adequate. With his vast system and managerial experience, sheer grit and determination, he analysed the problems in the shortest time and initiated remedial measures.

Kiran MK IA aircraft were re-inducted in Jan 91. He motivated the officers and technicians to meet the additional task of running two DSS and R&SS for Kiran MK IA and Kiran MK II without any additional manpower. He was the main driving force behind the Station achieving nil accident on Kiran MK II since its induction and after 30,000 hrs of flying. As a result the Station was awarded Flight Safety Trophy of Training Command, for the year 1989-90 and Air Force Flight Safety Trophy for the year 1990-91.

Gp Capt Atma Singh analysed and improved MT holding in a phased manner. His thrust, on safe driving amongst the MTDs has resulted in nil, MT accident during last 2 years and the Station obtained Best MT Trophy of Training Command, during 198990. He planned and vigorously followed up replacement of old and obsolete Radio and Navigational equipment by the State of art systems. The Station attained and sustained almost 100% serviceability of all the RANAD equipment. This Station has been awarded Best Maintenance Trophy of Training Command for 1990-91. Gp Capt Atma Singh was deeply involved in planning all the maintenance facilities for successful conduct of trial firing at a newly selected Air to Ground Range. When operational, this range would accrue annual saving of about Rs.6 Crores for the Air Force.

For the intellectual and professional acumen of a very high order, excellence in management, devotion to duty and dedication to the service, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Gp Capt Atma Singh.
