The Hornet Flight composed of UH-1H from the 206th Tactical Helicopter Squadron and UH-1D from the 207th Tactical Helicopter squadron stationed at Kuta Heneral Teodulfo Bautista (KHTB), Busbus, Jolo conducted a Joint Exercise with Joint Task Force Jolo on November 25, 2018.

Together with JTF Sulu, the flight conducted a Helicopter Sniper Proficiency Exercise with the members of the Marine Special Operations Group (MARSOG) and the Philippine Marine Ready Force Sniper specialist.

The main objective of the exercise is to maximize the capability of the PAF’s Air Asset operability for counter insurgency as well as for the ground troops to include to their doctrine and tactics the use of air asset during operations.

The flight was included during the planning process of the exercise to ensure that the sniper team will consider all the factors that can affect their performance and also for them to have aircraft consideration when it comes to its limitations.

The JTF stated that future joint exercises will be conducted for the success of the AFP mission.
