Philippine Air Force to Receive New Aircraft

The Philippine Air Force (PAF) will receive 18 new light aircraft and
eight helicopters as part of the armed forces of the Philippines
modernisation programme.

PAF 1st Air Division commander Major General Artemio Orozco said four
of the 18 aircraft and eight helicopters would be delivered before the
end of 2010, and the rest in 2011.

The PAF will use the multipurpose helicopters during disaster and
military operations, and the light training aircraft to replace old
training aircraft.

The air force is also constructing a taxiway and ramp to enable smooth
manoeuvrings of these aircraft.
