The UPKEEPERS Unit of the Philippine Air Force conducted Basic Motorcycle Course for the personnel of the 585th Air Base Group. The said event was held last May 23 – 25, 2023, at the Poro Point Baywalk with 52 participants.
The Unit aims to train all personnel who own motorcycles assigned at the Wallace Air Station to avoid or mitigate the possibility of road accidents.
The Poro Point Freeport Zone used to house the former Wallace Air Station. The enactment of Republic Act 7227 (Bases Conversion and Development Act) on March 19, 1992 and Proclamation No. 216 on July 27, 1993 effectively transferred the stewardship of the Freeport to the Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) to facilitate its conversion into a productive economic growth center.
