Philippines Air Force Reactivates Three More S-211 to train F/A-50 Pilots

The decision to reactivate three more SIAI-Marchetti S-211 jet trainers is aimed at increasing the number of aerial assets needed to screen and train prospective F/A-50 pilots.
The additional S-211s will provide incoming pilots of the South Korean-built jet plane with the flight time and training needed for fast aircraft operations.
The F/A-50 is expected to be in service within the Philippines Air Force by the third quarter of 2015.
Four PAF pilots will be deployed to South Korea before the end of the year to undergo familiarization training in the KAI F/A-50 "Golden Eagle".
These PAF officials relatively have high jet time compared to other pilots, flying SIAI-Marchetti S-211 jet trainers which doubles as attack aircraft of the PAF.
