    THE newly acquired Agusta Westland-109 “power” helicopters would be put to actual duty in tandem with the Navy’s two modern-frigates by the end of the first quarter of the year, according to the Philippine Navy (PN). Navy spokesman Lt. Cmdr. Gregory Fabic said on Wednesday that preparations were ongoing, including additional training, to ensure that the pilots and crewmen would be well-versed in the operation and maintenance of the Modern air assets. Included in the pilots’ training, Fabic added, is how to effectively use the night vision gear, forward looking infrared sensors and cargo hoist and as well as on how to make deck landings on frigates BRP Gregorio del Pilar and BRP Ramon Alcaraz, the two most modern ships in the arsenal of the Navy.
