IPOH, Nov 27 (Bernama) -- The Royal Malaysian Air Force needs six more
planes for its training programme, RMAF Chief Gen Tan Sri Rodzali Daud said
He said that a request had been made to the Defence Ministry for MK-II
aircraft to replace the PC-7 which had been used since 1984.
"We now have 10 MK-II aircraft, which were bought last year. We are asking
for six more," he told reporters after the passing out parade of 328 junior
servicemen and 62 servicewomen at the RMAF Training Institute here.
If the ministry did not have the allocation for the aircraft, or required
time to meet the request, the PC-7 would have to be upgraded, he added.

Rodzali said the RMAF training institutes at Kinrara and Subang in Selangor
and Kuantan in Pahang will be moved to a new centre in the Klang Valley soon.
He said the move would not affect the training institutes here and in Ipoh
and Alor Setar.
At the parade, Muhammad Fikri received the award of best junior serviceman
overall. Muda Mohd Azhar Baharuddin was first in the academic section, and
Mohamad Amirul Ashraf Anuar the best shooter.
Ayuni Alwi was the best junior servicewoman overall.
