At a time when the UK Ministry of Defense has closed their official UFO investigations unit the Chilean Government has decided to Reactivate theirs with an annual budget of $100,000 .

December 30, 2009 - Santiago, Chile -- The State Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC) has reactivated the Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena, which analyzes unidentified flying objects (UFOs) from a scientific perspective. The Committee for the Study of Anomalous Aerial Phenomena was created in 1997 but in recent years has kept a low profile due to a shortage of funds. The committee now has an annual budget of $100,000.

The secretary general of the DGAC, Pablo Ortega, told reporters today that "there is more information, technology and international collaboration to study these anomalous phenomena" that affect flight operation and flight safety. He acknowledged that "there are photographs and reports from pilots who talk of situations that are worthy of being studied" by the committee, where they will work with two experts in air traffic. The committee will be headed by retired officer of the Air Force of Chile, Ricardo Bermudez. Ricardo Bermudez became interested in the phenomenon several years ago and has addressed it from a scientific standpoint.

The question has to be asked why now ? , what has prompted the Chilean Government to make these funds available now in the middle of a Global recession , could it be a response to the spate of sightings in South America in recent years ?

Hey cool! Things are shaking up around here (S. America)
I wish my gov't (ARG) would do something like that, i think we had some expert team like that in the past but was cancelled in one of the usual "political crisis" around here...
I'll try to dig that up..
