PH Navy's "Wildcat" anti-submarine helicopters now mission capable


Good news for the Philippine Navy (PN) as this will be operating as a multiplier effect in its mission in protecting the country.

The Philippine Navy has announced that its two AugustaWestland (now Leonardo Helicopters UK) AW-159 “Wildcat” anti-submarine helicopters are now flying and mission capable.

This was announced by PN chief Vice Admiral Giovanni Carlo Bacordo when asked for updates on the two helicopters acquired by the Navy to complement the anti-submarine warfare capabilities of the two newly-delivered Jose Rizal-class missile frigates.

“Our AW-159s are flying and mission capable,” he said in a message to the Philippine News Agency.

However, in the aspect of deploying and pairing these helicopters to the BRP Jose Rizal (FF-150) and BRP Antonio Luna (FF-151), Bacordo said the pilots and other aircrews have yet to finish their mission essential and operation conversion training that is being supplied by Leonardo Helicopters UK.

“As of the moment, we are still awaiting the return of the instructors from Leonardo (Helicopters, in) the UK to be able to finish the training as part of the contract in the purchase of the AW-159s,” he added.

Bacordo did not give an exact timeline on when the UK-based instructors will be returning to the Philippines.
