PHILIPPINE NAVY TO ACQUIRE MULTI-PURPOSE AMPHIBIAN AIRCRAFT

As part of the Horizon 2 Priority Projects phase of the Revised AFP Modernization Program, the Department of National Defense (DND) and the Philippine Navy (PN) has started the bidding process for the acquisition of one (1) Multi-Purpose Amphibian Aircraft.

The end user for the aircraft is the PN’s Naval Air Group (NAG), which currently operates the Beechcraft C-90 King Air & Britten-Norman BN-2 Islander surveillance and utility aircraft, and Cessna 172 Skyhawk trainer aircraft, aside from helicopters.

It is believed the specifications developed by the Department of National Defence for the new aircraft are tailored fairly precisely to accommodate the selection of the Guardian version of the Twin Otter Series 400.

The Latest Website Update page has recently been removed, and any new content notifications will now appear as part of the blog entry. So, when there have been changes made to any Archive items, it will now show up here, along with a link.

I will begin working shortly (as soon as I determine exactly how to do it…) a master index page for the Archive that includes a quick way to determine the airframe’s current status. The old site used colour coding, and that is the direction I would like to return to on a single page index, however the set up here is not particularly conducive to that unfortunately.

Website Update by Erik Johannesson

Hello everyone,

Back on-line again after a couple week hiatus due to a hard drive failure. Fortunately 100% of the critical archive data was kept on independent drives. I now just need to go back and compile what news and changes occurred during the down time. It was certainly an unwelcome reminder of how reliant we are to technology.

Donations to the “new computer” fund are greatly appreciated. That will certainly help a great deal in helping to pay off the good friend who fronted the cost of the replacement machine. Without his help, I wouldn’t be writing this now. Donations can be made through paypal via the donate button, interac e-transfer here in Canada, or bank wire transfer.

I’d also like to remind everyone, especially those that only read the subscription version; on days where there is no blog update, it doesn’t necessarily mean there are no updates to the website. A perfect example being that in the 90 day period from May to August 2018, over 1,000 pages and 4,000 photographs were added!

Thanks for your consideration, and I’ll have a Twin Otter Update for you tomorrow.
