THE Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) will soon set up its own airbase in Barangay Luna, Cadiz City, Negros Occidental.

The Coast Guard Station (CGS) in Negros Occidental announced the move after PCG District Western Visayas Deputy Commander Captain Ludovico Librilla and United Sugar Producers Federation (Unifed) President Manuel Lamata signed the deed of usufruct last Thursday, September 23.

Lamata donated the 30,000-square-meter property directly to the PCG in the northern Negros Occidental locality.

Librilla said the airbase will allow the PCG to conduct aircraft landing, refueling, and restocking of materials for logistical missions, such as search and rescue (SAR) operations, reconnaissance, aerial surveys, and aerial domain awareness.

Librilla added they are grateful to Lamata for donating a portion of his lot to support the PCG's mission to serve the nation with patriotism, compassion, and fear of God. (With reports from TDE)
