Military spokesman B.G. Restituto Padilla said two of the jets would be arriving Wednesday next week, while two more would be delivered in April, and the last two in May.
The six jets are part of the 12 FA-50s purchased by the military from manufacturer Korean Aerospace Industries for P18.9 billion during the Aquino administration.
Six FA-50s have earlier been delivered to the Philippines — via the Clark Air Base, home to the 1st Air Division — in three batches of two, since November 2015.
“By April, FA-50s with tail numbers 009 and 010 will be delivered while 011 and 012 will be handed over this May. By that time, the PAF’s 12 FA-50 fleet will be completed,” said Padilla.
The military spokesman said the military was also considering the acquisition of six more FA-50s from KAI, saying the FA-50s currently in the inventory of the Air Force are performing well.
“We are constantly evaluating the jet and so far, it’s performance has been good. If we will be given additional funding and authority, we might acquire six more units,” according to Padilla.
