Philippine Army Commanding General Lt. Gen. Romeo Brawner, Jr. on Wednesday, January 19, 2022, inspected the Army Aviation Regiment’s two helicopters after they completed a round-trip proficiency flight mission from Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija to the Army’s main headquarters in Fort Bonifacio.

Col. Andre Santos, commander of the Army Aviation Regiment, led all-Army aviators on a round-trip proficiency training flight using the Robinson R44 Clipper II and the Bolkow BO 105M multi-purpose helicopters. The training is part of the Philippine Army’s ongoing effort to improve the skills of rotary-wing aviators.

The Philippine Army is committed to strengthening and building a transformed and modern Army aviation in order to prepare all Army aviators for future missions supporting ground forces.

Lt. Gen. Brawner praised the Aviation Regiment’s modernization efforts, praising the unit’s efforts to train more aviators, rotary-wing pilots, and multi-engine rating personnel. He also praised the regiment’s efforts to improve its aviators’ access to standardized doctrine in order to better prepare them for a fast-changing combat environment.

“As you push yourselves in giving your best on your training, I commend all men and women manning the Army Aviation Regiment. Despite the challenging time and situation, you commit to capacitating yourselves for the development and transformation of our modernized Army aviation. You have all the support of the Philippine Army leadership as you evolve into a modern and capable Army Aviation Regiment that is a source of national pride,” Lt. Gen. Brawner said.
