The infrastructure and technology at the Institute of Aviation Medicine (IAM) of the Royal Malaysian Air Force (RMAF) are among the best in the world, and have produced high quality aircraft pilots.
Defence Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said the excellent facilities available at the IAM prompted the air force of countries such as Australia, Thailand and the Philippines to send their pilots for training here.
"This shows that we have the expertise and advantages over some developed countries. The IAM prepares RMAF pilots in mental and physical health and improve their skills in handling aircraft," he said.
It is understood that more than 10 countries including India, Brunei and Pakistan have expressed their desire to send air force pilots for training at the IAM.
The IAM provides various forms of aerophysiology training and studies for RMAF pilots and personnel.
