The other two are expected to complete their basic training soon, and are expected to be coming home soon to help with the arrival of the two “Cobra” attack helicopters which are expected in the Philippines early in part of next year.
"Test pilots are needed to help fix the aircraft (if there are technical problems) while instructor pilots are needed to train additional pilots to man (the 'Cobra' attack helicopters)," Briguez said

The AH-1 "Cobra" is a two-blade, single-engine attack helicopter manufactured by Bell Helicopter.
It was developed using the engine, transmission and rotor system of the Bell UH-1 Iroquois. A member of the prolific Huey family, the AH-1 is also referred to as the "Huey Cobra" or "Snake".
