In Memory Of a Pilot and Commander

20l78zavjkp9yi0s3bpq.jpg

I really like to try and to share what I really feel about a great man whom has been the source and inspiration in both Air Force, and the Iranian Aviation Industry.

Words are not loud enough, and clairvoyant to express the character, and quality of this worthy pilot and Commander.  I feel that whatever that shall be said about him would not do justice, and shall fall short enormously.

Commander Pilot, Mehdi Dadpey was a courageous and innovative Commander of the Mehrabad Air Force Base in Tehran.  He was the driving force behind grate many positive changes, and improvements in the Air Force, leaving a great legacy behind.

Without exaggeration he was the finest and the best Air Force Commander I had the pleasure of knowing in all years of my service at the Air Force.  I have not seen or spoken to him for the past 15 years, but still remember how caring, compassionate, and motivated he was in his work.  A true hero and a patriot.

One of his amazing characteristics was his punctuality, and time keeping.  He used to get to the Base before anyone else, and used to get to each flight before the air crew did.

His humble attitude was exemplary, and so down to earth!  Though he was quit old, it did not stop him helping the ground crew in preparation for flights, even sometimes moving the big heavy generators all by himself.

Best of all he was extremely efficient, and observant, and by close supervision, and follow-ups, the daily routines of the Air Force Base used to be as efficient and accurate as a Swiss Watch.  He was also much loved and respected by all Air Force Base personnel who were under his command.

During his period of command the Mehrabad Air Force Base saw numerous and important positive infrastructural changes, namely;  Lunch of the SAHA Airways, building of the modern Passenger terminal, improvement of the Base's landscapes, and the improvements to the Air Force Base personnel's housing, and also improved overall Base atmosphere for all concerned.

He was very adamant in looking to his subordinates problems and would stop at nothing to help them overcome daily struggles.  As you may remember I told you about one of my friends "Mashallah Maddah", and his child, whom was helped with his illness by Commander Dadpey, and subsequently was sent abroad for treatment.

The poor guy had done everything possible to get help for his child, from writing to the Central Command Office to Poilt. Burro office, with absolutely no results in sight, until Commander Dadpey was commissioned with the command of the Mehrabad Air Force Base.

His good rep had preceded him to the Base, and everyone was well aware of his grand qualities and nobility, therefore, I suggested to my friend to try and petition our new Commander!

My friend was not too sure, and said:  There's no use!  Can you not see how serious and impersonal the Commander is!!??  I won't even get to see inside his office, let alone be able to tell him about my problems!!!

No matter what I said, or tried, my friend did not try to ask for help from our Commander!  Apparently he was way too overcome by the appearance of the General, therefore;  I took matters in my hand, writing a petition to the General on behalf of him, explaining his case, and problems.

Unbelievably;  Soon after he was given a green light, and was sent to Germany along with his child for treatment, all thanks to our dearest Commander Dadpey's efforts on his behalf!

Let's not forget, when I myself had a heart attack, and was told by doctors that I needed an immediate open heart surgery, and I had to run from one bloody office to another to get the proper permits, and clearances due to the war time limitations.  Finally;  I got stuck with the all kind and caring Security, and Polit. Burro office, whom kindly would not clear me to travel abroad to have my life saving surgery!!!  Oh!  I forgot to mention that this was both in respect to the war time restrictions for a flight officer to travel, and the fact that some God forsaken guy had told the Polit. Burro Office that I was planning to remain abroad after my surgery, and not come back!!!???  It was again General Dadpey whom rescued me and helped me obtain proper travel clearances.

What happened was that one day my wife asked me why I did not ask the Commander for help???

I told her that since the root of my problem was elsewhere, I saw no reason to do so! 

She convinced me to approach the Commander, so one day I wearily went to him at his office, and told him the whole story.  He was really moved and before long I was on my way to Switzerland for my treatment.  I should say that I owe my life and health to him after the Almighty God, and also to the kind and caring Poilt. Burro Boys!!!

During his command of the Base, other than all the positive and wonderful buildings and improvements, and looking after the personnel, he really made a tremendous effort to improve the ability of the technical personnel to service, and apply overhaul to our B-707s, by gathering the best and the brightest of the technicians to begin this mammoth task.

Before the revolution this was all done in the USA, costing the Air Force a bundle of money, and was subsequently stopped after the revolution due to sanctions!!!

I still remember after the Zahedan's air crash where we lost a C-130, he got there first thing in the morning, on which flight I had the pleasure of flying in his service, and when we got there he started to climb the hill before all, even the rescue team, and oversaw the crash investigation step by step.

PicbaranPicbaranPicbaran

I mentioned Zahedan air crash, and it reminded me of a story not too irrelevant about "Hossain Sayah Pour", the pilot of the plane.

I heard that years before his crash, Sayah Pour suffered from a chronic kidney problem, and was constantly in great pain, and was hence grounded, and used to carry out administrative duties, and latter on was forced to go on sick leave, staying at home.

The doctors could not do much for him.  During the same time the 7.2 RS Roodbar earthquake happened in North Iran, killing some 40,000 people in sleep.  Help and supplies started to pour into Mehrabad Air Force Base from all corners of the globe.

During one of those days, the personnel were ordered by General Dadpey to bring Sayah to the to the airport ramp, along with his family…!!!???

Everyone was so surprised to hear this but did as they were ordered, and brought Hossain to the ramp as were told!  The Commander spoke to the pilot of one of the German C-130s that had brought supplies, and subsequently Hossain was taken inside the plane along with his wife.

We were speech less, and overwhelmed to say the least at the Commander's did!  Most of all nor Hossain, or his wife did have a passport, or a German travel visa!

Hossain was taken directly to a hospital and received the needed treatment.  Funny enough all this was done by our gracious Commander, whom had made arrangement with the IRI embassy in Bonn, to have this done, even before the plane landed in Germany!!!

It was during the time I was preparing for my early retirement that I heard that the General had also retired.  I was sad to hear it!  In my heart I knew he was one of the best, if not the Best Commanders of the Air Force, and his departure was going to be a great loss.

I remember during the war each time I saw his blue Peykan (UK made Hilman Hunters 1960s) come around; I use to feel a positive energy surge running through me.  When we saw his predecessors, we used to get really nervous!!!  Whereas his presence was an inspiration to all of us, and seeing him helping his subordinates so unpretentiously, was a celebrated did, indeed!!!

All the years I was away from the Air Force, I use to hear that the General had launched an Airline.  I was confident that he would be as successful as ever in this new endeavor.  I so much wanted to pull away from my other works, and to rush to his service, and to be at his side.

Many times I wanted to go to him and to tell him about my ups and downs, however;  I feel so ashamed to disturb this great man.

About 15 years latter I went to ARTA KISH Flying Academy, of which I had heard a lot about it, to do a story for the Flight Magazine, and there I realized that the General was one of the high ranking Directors of the Academy.

I remember having his kind face in my head all the time I was interviewing Capt. Jalali, the Managing Director of the Academy.  Believe it or not when I was told by Capt. Jalali about all the success of the Academy, it was like I knew that:  That's the way it should be, with the General at the Helm!!!

Because I had introduced myself as a journalist I did not ask about the General!  Everything was in order, and efficient.  After 3 hours of interview I was moved to hear what I was told by Capt. Jalali at the end!!!

He finished by saying that the General has ordered the Flying Academy, and all the profits involved to be dedicated to our wonderful Iranian people!!!  That did it!  I could not stop crying in my car, I was so moved by his great soul.

Seeing me looking like a ghost, worried my wife and she asked me what had happened!?  In a shaky voice I told her about finding the General, and being there at his Academy.

She asked if I saw the General, and spoke to him about our problems!?  I told her that I did not see him, and interviewed the MD of the Academy, and did not feel appropriate to ask for him after I had introduced myself as a journalist!!

We then spent hours going down the memory lane, and going back to the old days talking about the gracious man that he was, and how much is owed to him.  I feel I should apologize to you all, I tend to get carried away!

Tell you the truth, I can write a whole book telling you about General Dadpey's years of honorable and valuable service in the Air Force.  From his days at the Air Force Academy to the velour in facing the enemy in his fighter plane and to his effective and efficient command of the Mehrabad Air Force Base.

He is a man whom is a formidable advisory to the enemies of his country, a true Eagle soaring in the sky, and tearing at the wicked crows of Saddam Hossain who were over our heads to inflict pain and suffering, watching over our families at the worst of the times.

On the other hand caring and compassionate to all of us serving under him.  I personally owe my life and health to him, for I may have not been here today and write about it, was it not for him who helped me when I needed it most.

I hardly wish to exaggerate about this great man, knowing that he would not like it and the fact that all he's done, has been to please the Almighty God, and his great heart.  On the other hand I feel that the young generation is owed to be told about such grand persons as him.

 

As I said, fate is not without a sense of irony!!!  It led me to a flying Academy that I just had heard about.  It all started when I was invited to join the Flight Magazine.  Before anything I started to gather what was in the archive, and started to review them once again.

I also invited some friends to spice up the magazine, and got the wind of the Academy during all the commotions.  Resultantly;  I became interested to get a special report on the Academy, and realized that it had had a tremendous success, and growth just recently.

I have always been interested in the roots of a company's success, and the roles of an accurate management in such success stories.  Therefore;  Instead of sending a reporter, I decided to do this story personally, not knowing my beloved former Commander was at the top!!!  I had only heard of Capt. Jalali!

lvljykgp70dvaq6ik6wy.jpg

My appointment to see him was for 1700 TT.  Me and Mr. Arman Bayat, whom is both the photographer, and a close colleague left for Ecbatan Complex where the Arta Kish offices are.

On arrival we were greeted by a polite young man who enquired about our visit.  Arman told him we had an appointment with the Capt.  We were directed to the first floor, management offices.

We were a bit early so my journalistic curiosity got the better of me, and I started to look around.

There was a Memo on the wall post, which had listed what was to be given to each flying student.  As I was browsing through the list of items that included;  A pair of trousers, a shirt, a tie, a wrist watch, a briefcase, a pair of shoes, a pilot CR3, a calculator, and relevant books, I started a journey down the youth lane…

y7yymikhclt6f58ao6i4.jpg

I remembered when I entered the US, with all the sophistications, compared to where I had come from.  I was like a village boy who had travelled to a city!  I remembered receiving my room key and relevant kits by the American guy who was in charge of us there.  I was so excited, just like a school boy who had been given a big bag of toys.

Amongst the items I received, there was a sort of a dark rain coat that one could fold to fit in the palm of one's hand.  As you may be aware;  Texas has the most unpredictable weather!  One moment you are backing in the rays of sunshine, and the next moment you see the clouds gather with a heavy shower.

So you see how useful these rain coats would be!!!  I should admit that the kits given to Arta Kish Cadets are far more complete than what we were given by the Americans.  I just hope that our young men realize the value of youth!

bhqv22gk5jgmgsj7z2b7.jpg

Just as I was in my own thoughts, and looking at the Memo, the Cadets who had just finished their lessons began to enter the entrance hall.  They were dressed very smartly in their shirts and ties, and were very orderly.  The girls amongst them were very eye catching.

As we used to say at the Air Force:  It was just like in the West!!!  It was just as disciplined and efficient as I was told by my friend Capt. Ghebraiee.

Tell you the truth I felt a bit out of place being a middle aged, and chubby guy between those young souls!!!

Before long it was 1700, and we made our way to the meeting.  I had asked my companions not to mention my past, and only to refer to me as a journalist!!!  I suppose I wanted to surprise Capt. Jalali.  I had heard that he was one of those Directors with a formidable command of words, and debates.

We were warmly greeted by our host, Capt Jalali.  I feel I should mention that each journalist has a method of getting his/her information!  I use the Attack, and Collect Method!

I start by thronging my interviewee a barrage of criticisms, and try not to let them gain their balance and composure!!!  By this wicked method I tend to work the interviewee, and if he/she is not a cool, and self controlling person;  I then would manage to catch them off gurd, and to get what he/she may have not told me otherwise.

I had used this method time and again when interviewing other MDs, Assistant MDs, and even some Cabinet Ministers!!!  However I found little or no weakness in Capt. Jalali's Directorship, only a system fault before his time as the MD.

ppjxq19q5ymv3ifymrjq.jpg

As they say:  "One's true colors are shown, once a peril is faced".  I soon realized that not only he had little or no weakness in his management skills, he was a very able, and capable person indeed, running a complex and sophisticated Academy such as the Arta Kish Flying Academy!!!

He offered a passionate and professional defense in respect to his predecessor's management that he himself had little or no part in.  There I realized how committed and caring he was in respect to his duties, and the Academy.

I was very much impressed by his intellectual character, but was not about to let him off the hook and to leave what I had started halfway through.  Therefore;  I waited until he finished his defense arguments.

My companions were astonished at my approach, and passed me a secret note asking What Was Going On!!!??

Bringing of the tea was a good time to stop my relentless attacks.  Poor Capt. Jalali had put up quit a defense, not knowing my true intentions!!!

Just as we were having our tea, I told him that I was just kidding, and that I was just curious as to how he had managed to bring about all the changes, and that was why I had come personally to see him about.

I saw him feel more relaxed with a sight of a relief.  In my heart I was very much taken by his courage, and personality, so after enjoying a cup of satisfying tea I started at the top by asking him to tell me a bit more about himself.

x8fplcg5z3f82lguv2pm.jpg

He told me that his full name was:  Massoud Jalali Chahar Mahali (I suppose from the South Central province of Chahar Mahal-e Bakhtiyari – South of Pars (Farse) Province), borne (1332) 1953, with his birth certificate being issued in Malayer (West of the city of Arak).  He had entered the Military Academy in (1352) 1973, and graduated three years later with a Bachelors Degree in Science.

He then had joined the Air Force in (1355) 1976, and was sent to US a year later for flying instructions course.  Being instructed on T-37, and T-38s.  In (1358) he was assigned to the C-130 Company, and also got to fly with other types of planes such as Cessna-172, PC-6, and Falcon Jet.

For a while he had served at Omidiyeh Air Force Base as the Director of the Operations, and latter on as the Commander of Dushan Tapeh Company (Also known as CHAKOSH in North Tehran).  Latter on he had served with Kish Air.  He was married and loved flying, so much that if once again he would be borne this is what he would have done all over again.

He had a commendable self-confidence and was very clairvoyants in his description of the events.  I began to feel a bit knotty, and used another one of my tricks to take the control of the interview, so that the interviewee would not be the dominant participant.

As I said I had not mentioned my past either in the US, or in the Air Force, just to catch him off guard.  For example when he mentioned flying with T-38, I asked:  Oh you mean the ones that are called the "White Rockets"???

At first he could not comprehend how a journalist would know of such things at such technical levels!!!???  After a while he could not help himself by wondering about how I was so knowledgeable with such accurate info, so he asked me:  How do you know of all these things!!!???

dsv295r2pmbwje58ae5h.jpg

I did not show the Ace in my hand, and comely replied:  I write in a technical aviation printed media, and rightfully I should know of such data, and information!  Hence;  Tried to keep the interview both sided.  He graciously explained all details about the Academy, and future plans.  I got what I wanted, which was the secret of their success!!!

I was curious as to how he had managed to turn the things around and to improve the tarnished image of the Academy, and to bring it to its rightful place in such short time!?

It was quite so simple;  He had utilized the essential power of Honesty, Hard Work, Passion, Order, and Friendship to achieve what was so amazing.

I asked him about the required Condition for employment there.

The following were the required conditions:

·        Having an Official National Diploma,

·        Iranian, or foreign nationality,

·        Complete health, in accordance to the Flight Standards,

·        For male candidates, having non medical military discharge,

·        For female candidates, all the above except the Military discharge.

He was a perfect host, and in order to accommodate us he had given explicit instructions for us not to be disturbed, and also had disconnected his office phone, and had switched off his Cell phone.

I feel that amongst other grand qualities, the other secret of his success was that he was very courteous toward his colleagues, and instructors.  He considered them the essential Base of their success, and was so adamant that none of their names be left out.

I asked:  when did he join the ARTA KISH Academy!?

574bsmiw941u8lszapra.jpg

He replied:  I started with the Academy right from the very beginning, teaching Aero Dynamics to the Cadets since (1380) 2001, and I have been the acting MD since 4 months ago.  I feel obligated to our people, and the young generations.  After all;  I became a pilot with their Tax Money, and not my own pocket!

Just then Capt. Javid Pour (Director of teaching) entered the office with his mug of tea.  A very tall and presentable chap with the rank of Capt.  I was told that Capt. Javid Pour had also served in the Air Force as an F-5 Tiger II pilot, and also Instructor Pilot for Il-76 planes, and PC-6.  Before retirement he was a captain of A-300 Airbus for Mahan Airways.

I asked about the Courses and Certificates that the Cadets receive, and he gave me a full account of what the Cadets are thought, and what certifications do they receive.  Full details of all courses and certifications are in my previous posting!

He also mentioned with a great conviction the true place of the Academy.  The Arta Kish Flying Academy having a great number of planes, and numerous centers of instructions at the key cities around the country, is one of the biggest Academies of this kind in the Middle East, if not the Biggest!

aikry90upbpkd7y2gzk0.jpg

We also plan to attract more Cadets, both nationally, and internationally, and also to provide some classes over the internet.  Also;  we hope that soon ladies shall be utilized in aviation services, and would be able to fly commercially.

After the interview we were invited to have a look at the classrooms.  The first classroom was Capt. Javid Pour's English Language Class, teaching technical and related words, and call signs.

The next class was the meteorology class, and so on.  I was taken to each class and was familiarized with what was happening there.  When we were visiting the canteen, I was nearly exposed to my dear Capt. Jalali!

One of the Cadets asked me if I was the Old Pilot!!!???  I pulled him to the side and asked him not to blow my cover!  I know that soon or latter he shall know about me, but for now I wanted to remain anonymous!!!

Funny enough when I went there the day after to get some pictures, I saw that Capt. Jalali had printed out my picture from the web site, and with a smile said:  So!  Now you are a movie star!!!???  I smiled and said:  God Forbid!!!  I was just up to my old tricks, and did a good job of it too!

He was very keen for me to mention all the involved at the Academy, and I promised to accommodate his wishes!  Good Heavens!  They are not just a few people you know!!!

He also mentioned that they are planning to hold a big ceremony for his Graduates, and their families!  I was very pleased, and again moved by his caring personality.  Not only he was very kind and courteous to colleagues, and visitors, he was very friendly with the Cadets too!
