|Details :|| |
Wing Commander Harbans Perminder Singh assumed the command of a missile squadron on 19 April 82. He has flown over 4700 hrs on transport and bomber aircraft. For his active participation during the 1971 IndoPak conflict, he was awarded Vir Chakra.
Immediately, on taking over the command of the unit, he set about the task of reorienting the squadron with the clear aim of making it operationally viable. The terrain of operation, being uneven and sandy, movement of heavy trailers and vehicles was difficult. He realised the compelling necessity of operating the combat flights from their operational sites. To achieve this task, he carried out detailed reconnaissance and, exercising initiative and resourcefulness, carried out a large number of mobility exercises. The new methods and innovations devised by him to improve operational mobility were highly appreciated.
Under his dynamic leadership and professional guidance, the squadron acquitted itself very creditably during all inspections and exercises. The operational status of the unit, viz. the functioning of the squadron, its training, upkeep of equipment, specialist and common user vehicles, is commendable. His squadron performed exceedingly well in the Air Defence Exercises and proved its combat worthiness.
The officer is highly service-oriented, selfmotivated and totally dedicated to the cause of the Air Force. He stands out as a dynamic commander with an enthusiastic approach to all intricate problems and is always willing to shoulder any responsibility, however onerous it may be.
For his selfless devotion to duty, resourcefulness in tackling operational problems, diligence and dedicated application to all service matters, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to Wing Commander Harbans Perminder Singh.
