Philippine Air Force (PAF) newly acquired Fighter Attack (FA-50PH) jets are acquiring ground based flight simulator systems worth Php 377.626 million, MaxDefense Philippines disclosed on Tuesday.

With Approved Budget for Contract (ABC), the project “also includes the construction of a facility to support the system plus integrated logistics support,” the post reads.

Moreover, the plan would likely include a full-motion flight simulator system according to MaxDefense.

As February 22, PAF owns a total of six FA-50PH jet fighters after two more, with tail numbers 005 and 006, landed at Clark Airbase, Pampanga last week.

The PAF’s 12-plane order from Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) is worth PHP18.9 billion. Now, only six more FA-50PHs remain to be delivered to the Philippines this year.

The FA-50PHs has a top speed of Mach 1.5 or one and a half times the speed of sound and is capable of being fitted air-to-air missiles, including the AIM-9 “Sidewinder” air-to-air and heat-seeking missiles aside from light automatic cannons.
