I joined the Indian Air Force through the National Defence Academy at the age of 17, becoming an officer at 21. I learned to fly an aircraft before getting my driving license. Over my 16-year flying career, I piloted MiG 21 and MiG 27 aircraft. Following this, my career focused on controlling the flying environment in the IAF. I obtained qualifications as a Pilot Attack Instructor, Combat Leader, Instructor, and Examiner. I also served as an Associate Professor for six years at a PG Institute for the Armed Forces, hosting officers from foreign countries. I retired in 2023. During one assignment, I represented the Air Force in 124 legal cases, successfully recovering about 700 acres of encroached land.


Other Interests: Passionate about photography, computer hardware, mechanics, and gardening. Occasionally, I dabble in cooking too.
