KUALA LUMPUR: In occasion of our discussion of our exclusive VIP planes and helos, Malaysian Defence would like to offer a pictorial account of the fleet. If you have pictures of the planes or helos not featured here feel free to send me one. We only have three! There are other pictures of course, but they are copyrighted, so used the links!
The VIP fleet is supposedly under the PM’s Department but operated and manned by the RMAF. Does this means the operating and maintenance costs are shared equally? As at the moment, Malaysian Defence can confirmed five VIP jets, 1 Airbus ACJ; 1 Boeing BBJ; 1 Fokker F28; 1 Falcon 900 and probably two Bombardier Global Express. There is a probability that RMAF operates two Global Express since one example featured in Airplane Pictures has the M48-02 serial number (They could have sold 01 already of course)
Malaysian Defence understands the need for a VIP fleet but do we really need that many different types?
The Airbus ACJ.
S70 Black Hawk (RMAF)
Fokker F28. Usually reserved for the Agong. (RMAF)
