The Indonesian Navy (Tentara Nasional Indonesia – Angkatan Laut: TNI-AL) will cease subsequent deployments of its BO-105 utility helicopters in the Middle East after concerns were raised over the aircraft’s ability to undertake further United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) operations.

The matter has been confirmed by various sources within the TNI-AL, each of whom have cited various technical issues with regards to the BO-105’s capabilities.

The TNI-AL operates a fleet of six BO-105 airframes, the first of which was delivered in 1980. The aircraft are based with the 400 Skadron Udara (Air Squadron) in Juanda, Surabaya.
