MANILA, March 5 — Air Force commander Lt. Gen. Lauro Catalino Dela Cruz told the 47 graduates of the Philippine Military Academy (PMA) "Siklab Diwa" Class of 2014, who are poised to join the flying service shortly after their March 16 graduation, that they will be coming at an opportune time.

This is because the PAF will soon be receiving modern air assets like the South Korean F/A-50 "Golden Eagle" jet aircraft, of which 12, are expected to be in service within the next two years.

Dela Cruz made this announcement during the reception dinner for the incoming 47 PMA Class of 2014 graduates last March 3.

The new officers were headed Cadet 1st Class Jheorge M. Llona who will be graduating at top of his class of 223 cadets on March 16.

Dela Cruz also encouraged them to work hard while in the service to have a successful career in the Air Force.

Llona responded by thanking the PAF chief for hosting and joining them in dinner.

The cadets also received their initial items of uniform, service firearm and their first month salary during the dinner. (PNA)
