  1. Even with a small fleet, RMAF remains the highest fleet hour for both EC725 and A400M aircrafts.

    The fleet could benefit from adding a few more used EC225 from MHS Aviation fleet, and probably 2 more used A400M from Spanish stocks (enabling them to fulfil their original buy commitment by replacing those sold to RMAF with new ones)
