Interesting twist to this acquisition. According to PAF Timawans, however, this problems with this project are already being resolved.

State-owned aircraft manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia (DI) says it has completed the manufacturing of two NC212i aircraft ordered by the Philippines.

Equipped with ramp doors and a modern navigation and communication system, the multipurpose plane, which is the latest generation of NC212 and has a carrying capacity of 28 passengers, is the first Indonesian aircraft ordered by the Philippines. The Philippines has not upgraded its air force’s fleet its aircraft in the last 20 years.

“We can do it in affordable prices, and with no dependency to the US. You can also put Israeli technology inside,” Budiman said. He accompanied Raymundo de Vera Elefante, Undersecretary for Finance, Ammunitions, Installations and Materials of the Department of National Defense, and Philippine Air Force Chief of Air Staff Maj.Gen. Rozzano D Briguez during a visit to the company’s fixed wing airplane hangar in Bandung on Friday.

So even if the manufacturer was blacklisted (was it due to delay?), the DND will still accept the planes. Was there a penalty fee that was offset to the total cost of both planes?

Finally... :)

This delivery was way too delayed, especially considering that the the C-295s were delivered ahead of schedule.

I'm still not entirely clear on what exactly the deal was with the autopilot system that they had to go with one (http://genesys-aerosystems.com/products/s-tec-5000-digital-autopilot) that hadn't been certified for the aircraft when the planes were built. Had it been planned to be integrated into the NC-212i from the beginning but they just didn't have the certification when the orders came in? Why didn't they stick to an older but already certified system so that they could deliver the products on time? I mean, they had delivered older models of the plane before...

PH Air Force commissions 2 new aircraft from Indonesia
By: Frances Mangosing - Reporter / @FMangosingINQ INQUIRER.net
05:19 PM June 26, 2018

CLARK FREEPORT — The Philippine Air Force has commissioned two brand new NC212i light transport manufactured by Indonesia, four years after they had been ordered.

Elfien Goentoro president of the state-owned manufacturer PT Dirgantara Indonesia formally handed over the aircraft to Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana in a ceremony held at Clark Air Base on Tuesday.

“These two aircraft, we’ve been waiting for this for quite sometime when I assumed as Secretary of National Defense. It was about to be delivered but because there were problems with the autopilot, it was delayed,” Lorenzana said in his speech.

But he said the president of the PT Dirgantara was “very much apologetic for the delay.”

The planes, signed through a deal in 2014, were acquired under the AFP modernization program for P850 million.

He said the new platforms are equipped with glass cockpit, modern avionics and autopilot system and could carry almost twice the number of passenger and cargo load of the Nomad.

“It has a longer reach and lower operational cost. It can take off and land in short and unpaved runways which on some days C-295 and C-130 can’t be accommodated,” he added.

Now that the first two aircraft have been delivered, has there been any indication as to how many aircraft the PAF actually wants/needs to replace the old GAF Nomad fleet? My understanding is that they have just three of the old planes in operation now.
