Arrival of Singaporean Chinooks at Oakey

Five Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) Chinook helicopters have arrived at the Army Aviation Training Centre at Oakey, Queensland.

The Chinooks are located at Oakey in order to access the outstanding flying training environment available on the Darling Downs.

The Chinooks will operate under the terms of the Oakey Treaty between Australia and Singapore, and are expected to commence flying activities this month. Australian Army Aviation flying training operations will not be affected.
