Vicky loved his first encounter with computers in 1985, as a fighter-pilot with the Indian Air Force (IAF). During his 12 years in service – while gaining invaluable operational experience on frontline strike aircraft, logging 1000+ hours on the Maruts (HAL HF-24) and later with MiG-21Ms and MiG-23BNs – he retained his curiosity for computers and software programming.
Vicky founded Sheorey Digital Systems in 1994 and led its foray into aviation in 1999 / 2000, steering its growth later into an established aviation infotech company by 2010. At Laminaar, besides leading the business, he remains the company’s chief business analyst and application architect.
A Graduate in Commerce from the University of Nagpur (1977), Vicky went to the India Air Force Academy, where he was commissioned as an officer in 1979.
