MANILA -- The newly-activated Japanese-donated Beechcraft King Air TC-90 will help the Philippine Fleet determine the exact capability needed to defeat a particular threat in the country's waters, a Navy official said.

< Edited >

TC-90 with tail number 390, one of the two Japanese aircraft donated to the Philippines last March 27, was activated during short ceremonies at Naval Base Heracleo Alano, Sangley Point, Cavite City on Tuesday.

Its activation will boost the operations and maritime air surveillance capabilities of the Naval Air Group (NAG).
With the completion of this process, the plane is mission-ready and could be deployed to any area designated by the Navy headquarters.

< Edited >

The TC-90, which is part of the Beechcraft King Air aircraft family, was offered by Japan shortly after the Agreement Concerning the Transfer of Defense Equipment and Technology was finalized on Feb. 29, 2016.

Two TC-90s were delivered to Sangley Point, Cavite last March 27. Three more will be delivered in the first quarter of 2018. (PNA)

The Philippine Navy activates its 2nd C90 Aircraft Donated by Japan

The Philippine Navy through the Naval Air Group (NAG) conducted Activation and Blessing Ceremony of the 2nd Beechcraft King Air C90 Aircraft on March 19, 2018. The ceremony was held at Headquarters Naval Air Group, Naval Base Heracleo Alano, Sangley Point, Cavite City with Rear Admiral Danilo R Rodelas AFP, Commander, Philippine Fleet as the Guest of Honor.

After completing the installation of its navigational equipment and paintings, the 2nd C90 aircraft is ready for operation. The activity was formally opened by Captain Juario C Marayag PN (GSC), Commander, Naval Air Group who emphasized the worthiness and usefulness of NV390 (C90 Aircraft) in maritime air surveillance which is vital in producing critical and sensitive information necessary for maritime situational awareness. The first C90 aircraft was activated last November 21, 2017 and made her maiden flight conducting Maritime Air Surveillance at Bajo De Masinloc on January 31, 2018 under the Operational Control of Northern Luzon Command.

The Guest of Honor, assisted by the Commander NAG headed the symbolic name revelation of the aircraft’s tail number: Naval Vessel (NV) 392. This was followed by the blessing of the aircraft by the Fleet Chaplain, Commander Alejo Simon A Araño CHS and the symbolic pouring of a bottle of wine on its nozzle by the Guest of Honor’s wife, Mrs Maya M Rodelas.

As part of his remarks, Rear Admiral Rodelas said that, “as we activate the 2nd C90 aircraft, it will bolster our surveillance capabilities as we patrol our vast sea lanes of communication and maritime borders. The threats that we face as a maritime nation, namely piracy, terrorism, border protection and even climate change dictates that we must be perpetually ready to address any contingency. In time, this aircraft will be deployed in areas of critical interest to our national security. The experiences that we as a navy will gain from the utilization of this aircraft will hopefully prepare us for a strong and credible navy that we all dream to be.”

With this milestone, the PN is indeed proceeding into a stronger and more credible Navy that the country will be proud of by 2020.

Japan will give another three Beechcraft TC-90 trainer aircraft to the Philippine Navy next week and will take place Monday at a Naval Base.

"The TC-90s will enhance Philippine Navy's capability to conduct aerial surveillance and recon of our territorial waters and they will also be used in disaster response and rescue operations.”

PH Navy gets 3 trainer aircraft from Japan

Sangley Point — The Navy on Monday received three Beechcraft TC-90 trainer aircraft from Japan on Monday, completing the transfer of five aircraft as part of a deal between Manila and Tokyo.

It was initially agreed upon that Japan would lease the refurbished trainer aircraft to the Philippines for $28,000 annually for five years. It later donated the planes instead in a bid to boost the Philippine military’s limited maritime capabilities.
