Turkish Defence Ministry company ASFAT signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Philippine Aerospace Development Corporation (PADC) on April 27 at the Asian Defence and Security (ADAS) exhibition in Pasay City.


Esad Akgün, Chief Executive Officer of ASFAT, and Raymond L Mitra, Acting President and CEO of PADC, signed the MOU. 
The MOU will pave the way for the maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) and sustain the Philippine Air Force's helicopters and aircraft (PAF). According to the local media, the agreement includes the PAF's UH-1 Huey, some of which were already decommissioned following a fatal crash in January 2021.
