By: Zaki Saleh

IPOH: A total of 443 trainees have completed the Air Force Young Warriors (PjM U) training Series 67/23 held at the Parade Ground of the Air Force Academy (ATU) in Ipoh.

This includes 60 young female warriors who underwent military training for 6 months, starting from November 14, 2023.

They went through three phases of training: basic military training, academic and instructional training, practical exams, and character formation.

The trainees come from various backgrounds, with 401 Malays, 4 Indians, 1 each of Chinese and Thai descent, and 36 indigenous people from Sabah and Sarawak.

In terms of academic qualifications, 214 hold diplomas, 36 have Malaysian Higher School Certificate (STPM), 26 possess Malaysian Skills Certificate, and the remaining 167 have Malaysian Certificate of Education (SPM).

The intake of Air Force Young Warriors in this series is the highest compared to previous years, which averaged around 350 individuals. This increase is due to the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) switching from twice-yearly intakes to three times over 2 years, aiming for more effective training implementation by the instructors.

For the upcoming series, the RMAF plans to further increase the intake to 500 individuals to meet future needs.

The Overall Best Trainee Award was conferred upon Amirul Akif Mohd Salleh, while Nur Safiah Hani Adly@Adey received the Best Academic Award, and Flait Charlie was honoured with the Overall Best Flight Award.

The awards were presented by the Chief of Air Force, General Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Mohd Asghar Khan Goriman Khan.
