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.
