CABANATUAN CITY – Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) officials inaugurated the new hangar of the Army Aviation Regiment and Administration Building of the Light Reaction Regiment (LRR) inside Fort Magsaysay, Nueva Ecija.
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar said the one-storey defense standard military hangar is intended to accommodate government aircrafts for maintenance and rapid deployment. It also has a full dimension parking space, drop-off area and concrete pavement for runway.
The Nueva Ecija 2nd District Engineering Office fast tracked the completion of these vital military facilities as a way of supporting the military personnel in their commitment to protect the country.
The P63-million closed-building hangar also serves as storage to protect aircrafts from direct sun exposure and other damaging elements.
Meanwhile, the completion of the P39.2-million, two-storey LRR Administration Building will serve as the operational and management center housing the administrative and support operations.
Villar assured that Department of National Defense can continue to rely on DPWH as its partner in its Tatag ng Imprastraktura para sa Kapayapaan at Seguridad Program to promote national peace and security and eventually improve quality of life for the Filipinos. – PNN
