Details :

Wing Commander Ujwal Ramchand Dabir has been the Flt Cdr of a Transport Squadron since 10 Apr 82. He has a total of 3475 accident-free flying hours to his credit.

During March 1984, he was detailed to commence aircraft operations in the J&K area to give support to the Army for the exercise 'Meghdoot'. He carried out the first landing in a Packet aircraft on the new Thoise runway and thereafter cleared other pilots also for the operation. He planned supply dropping in the area and operated as flying supervisor to provide excellent support to the Army in the Nubra valley. With his professionalism and in-depth knowledge of the area, he was able to instill confidence in other aircrew operating over the most difficult terrain and under adverse weather conditions.

During June, 1984, he provided continuous support to the Army agencies in apprehending deserters from Ramgarh area. His personal example, dedication and efforts, motivated the whole station. As a result, despite limited resources, operations by day and night and fast turn around of reconnaissance and troopcarrying aircraft could be achieved.

During September, 1984, he was specially selected to conduct flood relief operations in Saharsa area. Once again, with only two helicopters, he was able to provide succor to thousands of marooned people. His dedication, personal example and efforts, far above the normal call of duty, highly motivated the flood relief team and earned high praise from the officials of the Government of Bihar.

For his devotion to duty and personal example in the best traditions of the Indian Air Force, the President is pleased to award Vayu Seva Medal to Wing Commander Ujwal Ramchand Dabir.
