SINGAPORE — The Philippine Air Force (PAF) would receive by the end of this year the first of 16 new helicopters that would be used for disaster response and other emergencies.
Patrick Moulay, Bell Helicopter executive vice president for global sales and marketing, said at the Singapore Air Show on Tuesday that the Philippine Department of National Defense awarded to Bell last month the contract for the purchase of 16 Bell 412EPI helicopters.
