The rotary-wing pilots of the Philippine Army Aviation Regiment from October 25 to October 26, 2021, performed back-to-back night navigation training exercises in Fort Magsaysay, Palayan City, Nueva Ecija.

On two separate night flying drills, the rotary-wing pilots flew the Robinson R44 helicopter for six hours. The training missions give Army aviators crucial experience in preparation for their future missions.

Lt. Gen. Andres Centino, Army Commanding General, praised Army aviators for their willingness to update and improve their operational effectiveness.

“The Philippine Army is currently enhancing the capability of the Army Aviation Regiment to capacitate them in providing vital support to our ground forces,” the CGPA said.
