Philippine Air Force personnel together with United States Air Force personnel undergone a training course on maintenance of Lockheed C-130 Hercules military transport aircraft last week at Yokota Air Base, Japan.
The training course was led by the US Air Force 373rd Training Squadron Detachment 15.
“This is the first time we have taught this class with students from the Philippine Air Force,” said US Air Force Staff Sgt. Angelica Ponce, 373rd Training Squadron Detachment 15 aerospace propulsion instructor. “Aside from the different uniforms in the seats the class is no different.”
“This is very important because we can get some new ideas with regards to the matters of the build of up of the engine,” said Philippine Air Force Technical Sgt. Eulogio Arong, 220th Airlift Wing maintenance specialist. “It’s quite different from our country so it is good to learn how other military’s complete their mission, and we can strengthen our relationship.”
