US Southern Command Training Dominicans in Helicopter Maintenance

SANTO DOMINGO – A team from the US Southern Command began training members of the Dominican Republic’s air force on Tuesday in helicopter maintenance, air control and search and rescue operations.

The training will last for two weeks and will include about 50 air force personnel from the Caribbean nation.

Dominican air force spokesman Freddy Torres told reporters that the servicemen will be trained by US Southern Command technicians and experts to maintain aircraft, as well as in search and rescue operations.

Participating in the course will be “personnel that we’ve trained and whose knowledge will be strengthened,” said Torres at the San Isidro Air Base, east of the Dominican capital, where the program will be conducted.

Angel Moquete, a US soldier born in the Dominican Republic, emphasized the cooperation between the two countries, along with the ability and experience of the Dominicans in the tasks they will be executing starting on Tuesday.

The training is part of the ongoing cooperation program between the US and the Dominican Republic, Moquete added.
