Rotary Wing Command

AUCON SQUADRON

ESTABLISHED 4th JULY 2000

| Mission Request | Rotary Wing Hangars |

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>><<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

As with Fixed wing aircraft operations, Mil-Air Rotary wing; 'Aucon' Squadron deals with all military related helicopter assistance flights. Traditional military helicopters as well as some special purpose equipment have been evaluated and deployed with the squad.

There is no pre-set mission schedule for helicopter operations. Rotary Wing Command [RWC] plans and allocates helicopter missions in accordance with requirements of the clients. Pilots are allowed to plan and submit their own helicopter missions for approval. R-W missions are identified with letter 'H'. Before requesting R-W missions pilots should complete a SCF for each helicopter type that they wish to operate.

For away from base deployments, RWC will co-ordinate with Global Missions Command to arrange Mil-Air's heavy-lift aircraft such as C-17, C-141 and C-5A for transportation of helicopter. GMC will assign a Mil-Air Fixed wing aircraft pilot (or the same helicopter pilot if he/she is type rated to operate the required heavy lift aircraft) to operate these special Global mission. When helicopter is arrived at required location, helicopter pilot should accomplish the Rotary wing part of the mission. When completed, helicopter will be transported back to its home base using a heavy-lift aircraft. Efficient teamwork involving both Fixed wing and Rotary wing pilots is the prime factor in this concept.
