The inaugural ceremony was aimed at fostering better relationships and increase collaboration between the RMAF and the honorary RMAF officers.
"It is also part of the Air Force's aspiration to make the university as an organisational partner which can enhance the training of the Reserve Officers Training Unit (ROTU) officers.
"Through this partnership knowledge about the air force among ROTU officers will be enhanced," said Gen. Tan Sri Dato' Sri Hj Roslan.
Both Yang Amat Mulia Raja DiHilir Perak and Yang Amat Mulia Tengku Panglima Besar Selangor also graced the event.
Meanwhile, Universiti Utara Malaysia (UUM) Vice-Chancellor cum RMAF (Honorary) Colonel, Prof Dato’ Seri Dr Mohamed Mustafa Ishak, expressed hope that RMAF’s openness to initiate cooperation with universities, especially in the field of strategic and management would enable military officers become better trained and equipped to have worldview to tackle challenges ahead.
The honoured guests were also taken on a tour and they also had a feel of the newly acquired RMAF aircraft.
The ceremony was also attended by the Deputy Registrar cum Lt. Col. (H) Baharudin Yaacob and Major (H) Shahrin Hj. Ahmad.
