According to a senior Coast Guard officer, the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is looking into getting five (5) Airbus Helicopters H145 and two (2) Leonardo (AgustaWestland) AW139, Pinoy Aviators said in its official social networking page.

The acquisition will be through the maritime disaster response helicopters acquisition project approved by National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Investment Coordination Committee (ICC)-Cabinet Committee last month.

The approval of NEDA Board chaired by President Rodrigo Duterte is still needed before the said project could be finally implemented.

The project has a budget of PHP5.887 billion for seven helicopters which will include training of pilots and technical crew; purchase of mission equipment, maintenance tools and spare parts; construction of hangars; and project management.

The project aims to strengthen and expand the PCG’s capability to respond to maritime incidents during natural calamities.

  3. selamat Philippine militer Anda bersiap untuk modernisasi. Singapore jealous

  4. they dont even have coastguard ships that can carry helicopters they should assign helicopters in batangas, cebu, davao, palawan

    1. That's true at present the PCG does not have helicopter capable ships, but for sure if this deal pushes thru one of these helicopters will be assigned in the OCEA's OPV 270 wherein one unit was ordered from the French maker. For the time being these helicopters will be land based as you said.

    2. Idiot Pinoys,look your Sanjuan class ship for heli capable. No education

    3. I would like to rectify what I said that PCG does not have helicopter capable ships, actually they do but they do not have hangar's. They are the four units of the 56 meter San Juan Class as mentioned by k8kk ertuiwa
