The Airmen, representing 15 Air Force specialties, will work side-by-side with Honduran Air Force members in developing the seven core competencies of air base defense, air traffic control, aircraft maintenance, aircrew survival, communications, generator maintenance and safety. The MSAS Airmen will participate in a mutually beneficial forum for the exchange of ideas between U.S. and Honduran Airmen via interactive classroom sessions and hands-on training at the base and surrounding areas.
