Cambridge Celebrates the One Year Anniversary of the Colombian Regional Helicopter Training Center Program Nationalization
One year ago, Cambridge completed the nationalization of the Colombian Regional Helicopter Training Center (RHTC) Support Services program. We supported the COLMIL in building up their national helicopter maintenance, logistics, and training capabilities to a point where they could efficiently and effectively manage the program autonomously. This work was labeled as SOUTHCOM’s “flagship” program, therefore a strict and aggressive three-year timeline mandated that the nationalization occur in 2019. Our team leveraged their extensive counter narcotics (CN) mission experience, CN-specific aviation experience, in-country logistics capability, and in-country resources to successfully transition the RHTC mission responsibilities in-country on-time and within the schedule promised at kickoff. The nationalization marked a major milestone in Cambridge’s mission to assist the United States Government and partner nations in developing their own security capacities.
We are proud of the impact our support and the RHTC program has had on Colombian CN efforts and the critical role these capabilities play in both U.S. and Colombian national security. Cambridge also supports SOUTHCOM and Colombia’s aviation training through training facility construction and setup; lesson planning; training material development; and in-person instruction.
