A Dominican Republic air force pilot and maintenance airman inspect an A-29 Super Tucano for a nighttime flight Dec. 4, 2013, as part of an exercise to detect and track illegal drug traffic. The exercise is part of the Sovereign Skies Program, an initiative between the U.S., Colombian, and Dominican Republic air forces to share best-practices on procedures to detect, track and intercept illegal drugs moving north from South America. Since the program’s inception, the number of aircraft suspected to traffic drugs through the Dominican Republic dropped from more than 100 annually to nearly zero. (U.S. Air Force photo/Capt. Justin Brockhoff) AFSOUTH partnership brings illicit air drug trafficking to a halt
In 2010, illegal drugs were being flown into the Dominican Republic at an alarming rate. The continual issue of drug trafficking led the Dominican government to seek new aircraft and tactics to deal with the problem. They turned to the U.S. Southern Command, which is responsible for U.S. military involvement in South America, Central America and the Caribbean. U.S. Southern Command turned to its air component, Air Forces Southern at Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Arizona, for expertise in interdicting illicit air traffic and regaining air sovereignty and the Sovereign Skies program was born.
