The decision means the current 16th Aviation Brigade and Army Aviation Training Centre will transfer from Army Forces Command to Aviation Command, which will be led by Major General Stephen Jobson.

Major General Jobson said the move would simplify the management of Army helicopters and enhance their safety and effectiveness.
