November 15, 2019 – TIMESINDONESIA, MALANG, The 5000 flight hour overhaul of the C- 130 Hercules 54H60 propeller can now be handled at home by the Indonesian Air Force Technicians. This process was previously always done abroad.

Indonesian Air Force Chief of Staff (KASAU), Air Marshal Yuyu Sutisna, S.E., M.M., accompanied by Marsda Air Force Material Maintenance Commander (Koharmatau) TNI Dento Priyono and staff visited Depo Maintenance (Depohar) 10 Tuesday (12/11/19).

Air Force Chief of Staff, Yuyu Sutisna saw firsthand the maintenance capabilities of the Air Force technicians at Depohar 10 Bandung. The Air Force Chief of Staff said, “He was very proud to see the performance of the technicians being able to carry out the maintenance processes to overhaul the C-130 propellers. This overhaul capability was obtained in 2018 from The United States Government’s Assistance program.”

This is an extraordinary achievement for Koharmatau’s Depot 10 technicians being able to overhaul the propellers in country now and not having to send them overseas for overhaul.

Meanwhile Commander Dento Priyono felt very happy and satisfied with the achievements of his staff units. The Commander noted, “ This achievement is a good collaboration from all parties so that it produces an output which deserves appreciation from the leadership for carrying the good name for the Indonesian Air Force.”Cli
