This is how I started flying with the RMAF, after graduation from the flying school, the sent me to the fighter squadron.

Started with this CL41G, Tebuan, based in Kuantan from 1981-1984, followed by the Aermacchi MB339. Most of the operational sorties were to provide ground attack againts the Communist Terrorist, in support for our troops at the Thai and Malaysian border .

In 1984, I was transfered to Butterworth Air Base , different role this time, as the Air defence Pilot, flying the Northrop F5E .

 Towards the end of my carrier with the Airforce, I was sent to Alor Setar Base to teach the young pilots of RMAF to fly. My tenure of duty there was from 1990 to 1992, which include flying for the Taming Sari Formation for the first LIMA in 1991.

And today, 07 Sept 2014, I am awarded the Pingat Jasa Malaysia as a recognization for my service in RMAF especially fighting the Communist Terrorist.
Sadly, I was unable to attend the prestige and memorable function as I was away on duty flying somewhere over the Amazonica, The Latin America. My son proudly volunteered to received the medal on my behalf and here it is, the PJM.
