The Philippine Coast Guard will soon have its airbase in Cadiz City, Negros Occidental.

This was after UNIFED (United Sugar Producers Federation) president Manuel Lamata and PCG Western Visayas District, represented by its deputy commander, Coast Guard Capt. Ludovico Librilla, signed a deed of usufruct on September 23 allowing the former’s 30,000 square-meter property to be used as an airbase of the PCG in Brgy. Luna, Cadiz City.

“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 said.

He added that the PCG is grateful to Mr. Lamata for donating a portion of his lot in support of the PCGs mission to serve the nation with patriotism, compassion and fear of God.

The infrastructure project is necessary for the delivery of Coast Guard service through aerial assets in Western Visayas region, Librilla further said.*
