The Albanian Air Force is getting an upgrade thanks to an agreement with the US Department of Defense.
Albanian Defense Minister, Olta Xhacka, visited the New Jersey National Guard, at the McGuire-Dix-Lakerhurst base, where she was received by the base commander, Brigadeer General Jemal J. Beale.
Xhacka finalized the bilateral agreement with the US State Department to receive several Black Hawk helicopters, which Minister Xhacka considers a great support for Albania.
“The US support not only modernizes our forces, but it also increases our capacity”, the Minister said.
Albanian pilots and maintenance technicians will start a training in New Jersey for the Black Hawk helicopters.
