PHL-Japan Beechcraft TC-90 Aircraft lease agreement
« Reply #2 on: October 25, 2016, 07:38:05 AM »
Manila Bulletin - October 25, 2016
Quote
According to Philippine Consul General to Japan Marian Jocelyn Ignacio, one of the highlights of the President’s trip is the planned lease of military planes from Japan, which could reportedly be used to protect the country’s claims in the disputed South China Sea.

“There’s a lot of interest in defense cooperation so what we are really anticipating right now and what we are very excited about is the possibility that there might be a lease of TC (90s) by Japan to the Philippines,” Ignacio said in a media interview.

Ignacio was referring to the five Beechcraft TC-90 training planes the Philippine defense department plans to lease from Japan, that could be used as surveillance aircraft. The proposed accord also involves Japan’s possible commitment to help the Philippines train pilots and aircraft mechanics.

Speculatively -- that is probably a typo/mis-interepretation; as @Ayoshi posted this at another forum... :
Quote
The Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) has operated a total of 40 C90 and C90A King Airs, with deliveries beginning in 1973. These have been given various designations by the JMSDF and consist of 34 TC-90 trainers, five LC-90 transports and a single UC-90 which is configured for photographic aerial survey. The TC-90s and the UC-90 comprise the 202 Kyoiku Kokutai (Training Squadron) based at Tokushima, while the LC-90s are attached to various Lockheed P-3 Kokutai (Squadrons) and a NAMC YS-11 Kokutai[11] as liaison aircraft.

... which might have gave a hint, on why the cost of lease for the fifth TC-90 is more expensive.   While these King Air twin-props are basically Mk.1 eyeballs for search and surveillance, the modification made on the single unit, would be a welcome addition.

It's an accepted advantage, however, that high-wing aircraft are much better suited to eyeball observation. BN Islander, Nomad and eventually Cessna Caravan share similar characteristics.

^ Yeah, I was about to edit my post after I found what the JMSDF's 40 TC90 variants are. You're too quick 40.
So those planes, except for the UC90 are strictly trainers with no added surveillance equipment, huh?

First TC-90 aircraft leased from Japan to arrive by Q1 of 2017

Quote
One out of the five TC-90 aircraft, earlier leased from Japan, will be arriving in the Philippines by the first quarter of 2017.

This was disclosed by Philippine Navy (PN) spokesperson Capt. Lued Lincuna who added that the aircraft may arrive either in February or March at the Sangley Point air facility in Cavite.

Last November, two PN pilots and six air crews left for Japan to start training on the above-mentioned aircraft.

The Department of National Defense (DND) earlier announced that the Philippines will be re-equipping the TC-90s as Japan have stripped of some its equipment, including its surveillance systems.

The delivery coincides with conclusion of the first batch of PN crew-training.

http://www.update.ph/2017/02/2-japanese-aircraft-to-be-delivered-to-philippine-navy-next-month/14790

***

The Japan Maritime Self Defense Force (JMSDF) will deliver two of the five leased turbo-prop TC-90 aircraft to the Philippine Navyís (PN) Sangley Point air facility on March 27. This was confirmed by Navy spokesperson Capt. Lued Lincuna in an interview Thursday.

The aircraft will be delivered to the country by JMSDF pilots and will be formally transferred to the Navy on the same day.

Lincuna said the remaining three TC-90s will be transferred to the Navy before the end of the year.

He added that the TC-90s will be used to augment the existing Norman-Britten BN-2 Islander fleet, which the Navy uses in patrol, surveillance and humanitarian assistance and disaster relief (HADR) and rapid assessment missions.

Last November, two PN pilots and six air crews left for Japan to start their TC-90 flight training.

The Department of National Defense (DND) earlier announced that the Philippines will re-equip the TC-90s as Japan has stripped them of some equipment, including their surveillance systems.

The country will pay Japan USD7,000 each for the first four aircraft yearly and only USD200 for the fifth, for total of USD28,200 as stipulated in its lease agreement.

The DND added it is also looking at the possibility of using the TC-90 for 20 years while the military is upgrading its equipment.

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 Feb. 29 last year.

The TC-90ís patrol range is double that of a small Philippine aircraft, which only has a maximum range of 300 km.
