The Indonesian Air Force Chief of Staff Marshal Hadi Tjahjanto has revealed that the Air Force is looking into purchasing an AgustaWestland AW-101 VVIP helicopter. The investigation of the purchase has been controversial, as the Military Chief General Gatot Nurmantyo and Defense Minister Ryamizard Ryacudu were unaware of the interest in the purchase.

The Air Force sent a letter to the Ministry of Defence explaining that the helicopter would be used for SAR missions and military missions, not for presidential transportation, reports Antara News.
