“A private company helicopter took off from the Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah Airport (LTSAAS), Subang at 11:37am with a pilot on board. The helicopter was scheduled to land at the Sultan Azlan Shah Airport Ipoh at 12:37pm but was reported missing and had lost contact with the Kuala Lumpur Air Traffic Control Center at 12:16pm,”

“The last location was reportedly around the forest area near Bidor and Langkap,” he said after visiting the Ipoh KTMB Station.

Additionally, he explained that the Royal Malaysia Police (PDRM) and CAAM are collaborating on search and rescue (SAR) operations.

“I am praying for the best, we will make every effort to locate the helicopter that is said to have disappeared from the KLATCC radar. In addition to getting the cooperation of the PDRM, we also deployed all the relevant agency teams to search for the helicopter involved.”

The SAR operation will be carried out around the Bidor and Langkap forest areas and also on land routes by PDRM.

“If according to the radar, they (the helicopter and pilot) are already on the ground, but we don’t know, as long as we have yet to receive (a full report), then we cannot make any assumptions,”

“A complete report in the form of a statement will be issued by CAAM after this,” he added.

 

Our heartfelt condolences to the family of the dearly departed. May his soul rest in peace.
