Details :

MWO Gnana Narayana Tammalapalli has been on the posted strength of a Helicopter Squadron since 01 Dec 85.

His vast knowledge and technical skill has been the bed rock and sheet anchor of the Squadron's maintenance activities. His personal involvement in every facet of technical activity, from formulating servicing schedules of the newly inducted aircraft and rectifying snags, has enhanced the operational efficiency of the Squadron. However, he is a strict disciplinarian in the execution of the task and does not compromise on standards and laid down procedures.

In 1986 when this Squadron was still in its infancy and was be-set with innumerable teething problems, he, drawing from his skill, experience and knowledge, was instrumental in providing able guidance in overcoming these problems and formulating safe procedures. His very presence in the Daily Servicing Section and Repair and Servicing Section itself was a motivating factor.

In the years that followed, this Squadron was involved in a number of exercises and operations that posed a multitude of technical problems. But his innovation, zest, drive and attention to details has helped the Squadron in a good stead and maintain an accident/ incident free record while maintaining its operational efficiency. The erection and deerection schedules of Mi-25 at Bombay brought out his unflagging zeal, initiative and exemplary professional skill. The erection and induction of Mi-35 to the AF Inventory at Bombay in April 1990, was yet another feather in his cap.

MWO Narayana has excelled not only in his professional duties but has also proved indispensable whenever the need to organise various functions has arisen.

For his professional excellence, exemplary sense of devotion to duty and single minded purpose of task accomplishment, the President is pleased to award Vishisht Seva Medal to MWO TG Narayana.
