Battalion 6 Mobility and Maneuver supports the Army’s 6th Division as well as the Fuerza de Tarea Conjunta Omega (Joint Task Force Omega) created as part of the Plan Patriota (Patriot Plan) to reduce the forces of the Fuerzas Armadas Revolucionarias de Colombia-FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia). This battalion is formed by pilots and flight engineers for the Mi-17, and crews and specialists for the UH-60 and UH-1N. Their primary geographical responsibility covers almost 40 percent of Colombia, including the areas of Meta, Caquetá, Guaviare, Putumayo, and Amazonas.


Daily operations in the battalion include a normal military schedule of physical training, aeronautical English classes, updates on current weather conditions, and constant training in operational safety. Operations are managed according to the 6th Division’s flight needs, with detailed briefings before each mission. Their goal: to safely complete tasks and improve the quality of service and support of other Army units.


Lieutenant Colonel Alex Tarazona-Zambrano, UH-60 Black Hawk instructor pilot, is the commander of Battalion 6. He says aviation has given a strategic advantage to the Army to win back terrain from insurgent groups, thus he sees air mobility bringing peace to his beautiful nation. This mobilization capability has helped stop the advance of guerillas, as each battalion of mobility and maneuver has increased the Army’s force and response capacity.
