Members of the Indonesian Air Force visited Holloman Air Force Base on March 15, 2017 to learn about MQ-9 operations and Holloman’s remotely piloted aircraft enterprise.

The members were shuttled to various locations on base, including the Operations Group, the MQ-9 Flight Training Unit and the 16th Training Squadron here.

The tour began with a mission briefing by Col. Houston Cantwell, the 49th Wing Commander, at the Operations Group. There, delegation members were briefed on Holloman’s RPA mission.

Following a visit to the MQ-9 FTU, the tour concluded with a visit to the 16th TS, where delegation members were able to handle an RPA flight simulator, and learn more about Holloman’s RPA flight operations and training units.

Afterwards, the delegation took a quick trip to the Base Exchange and ate lunch at the Shifting Sands dining facility, prior to being bussed to White Sands Missile Range, N.M.
