RMAF Was Formed

Nation Building, Places No Comments

Tentera Udara Diraja Persekutuan (TUDP) or Royal Malayan Air Force (RMAF) was formed with its roots traced to the Malayan Auxiliary Air Force formations of the British’s Royal Air Force (RAF) in the colonial Malaya.

The first aircraft for RMAF was a Scootish Aviation Twin Pioneer named “Lang Rajawali”. Several Malayans serving with the Royal Air Force (RAF) transferred to the Royal Malayan Air Force (RMAF). The role played by RMAF was limited initially to communications and the support of ground operations against Communist insurgents during the Malayan Emergency.
