Aviation Engineering Equipment Acquisition Project of the Philippine Air Force

The Philippine Air Force (PAF) has started embarking on the acquisition of Aviation Engineering Equipment to improve its engineering and civil engineering capabilities in support of PAF base maintenance, as well as providing engineering support and humanitarian assistance to the public on behalf of the Philippine government.

These equipment will be provided to the PAF's 355th Aviation Engineering Wing in order to be effective in its functions of providing General Engineering, Aviation Engineering, Combat Support, and Engineering Support during Humanitarian Assistance and Disaster Response (HADR).

The PAF's 355th Aviation Engineering Wing was among the recipients of the AFP's acquisition of Civil Engineering Equipment from China, which is a separate project from the PAF's own Aviation Engineering Equipment acquisition project.
