MANILA, -- Rotary-winged assets of the Philippine Air Force (PAF) will get another much-needed boost with the turnover and blessing of eight Bell-412EP combat utility helicopters and two attack versions AgustaWestland AW-109Es on Monday.

The ceremonies will be held at Villamor Air Base in Pasay City, PAF spokesperson Col. Enrico Canaya said.

He added that Defense Secretary Voltaire Gazmin will be the guest-of-honor and speaker for the occasion.

The Department of National Defense signed in March 2014 a PhP 4.8-billion contract with the Canadian government for the delivery of eight Bell 412EP helicopters.

Earlier, another order for eight attack AW-109Es worth PhP 3.44 billion was signed in June 2013.
