The Myanmar Air Defence Force (Tatmadaw Lay) commissioned four Airbus Helicopters H120 (formerly designated EC120 B) Colibri helicopters and four Beechcraft 1900D utility transport aircraft in a ceremony to mark the service’s 69th anniversary at Meiktila Air Base on 15 December, according to a posting on a Facebook website linked to Myanmar’s Commander-in-Chief of Defence Services.
This makes the H120 Colibri the newest type of helicopter to enter service with the Tatmadaw Lay. IHS Jane’s understands that the air force now has between seven and 10 Beechcraft 1900D aircraft in service.
