MACTAN AIRBASE, Cebu (DWDD) – As the whole country celebrated the Holiday Season of New Year 2018, personnel from the 220th Airlift Wing were working doubly hard, only to provide operational and airworthy aircraft for the post-new year sorties.
Heavy airlift sorties were conducted for the return flights of those who went on New Year’s break and other airlift requirements of Higher headquarters and Unified Commands.
Aircraft maintenance activities in the 220th Airlift Wing are one of the most challenging environment to work in considering that maintenance has to be carried on time and precise to keep the aircraft in the air. Adding to that complexity are the often vast amounts of data and procedures that need to be managed and to assure in-time compliance in the day to day pressure of keeping the fleet flying, safely and on time.
The Wing Commander, Brigadier General Stephen P Parreño AFP is keeping a watchful eye and close supervision on the conduct of the said activities.
“Maintaining these multi-engine aircraft is kept in compliance with all the operational and maintenance tasks, only to ensure continuous airworthiness”, BGen Parreño said. MCAG / PAF PIO / Photo Courtesy of Major Michael Marvin Manas PAF
