The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) announced on 9 September that it has acquired a Cessna Grand Caravan EX multirole aircraft as part of its lightweight, fixed-wing aircraft acquisition programme to replace its ageing fleet of Britten-Norman BN-2A Islanders.

Before retiring from the service, then-PCG Chief Admiral George V Ursabia Jr inspected the new aircraft at a Department of Transportation hangar in Pasay City.

The PCG noted that the new aircraft “will significantly improve the performance of the [Coast Guard Aviation Force]”, particularly when conducting surveillance, search-and-rescue (SAR), and medical evacuation (medevac) missions.

The new Grand Caravan EX will join and later replace two BN-2A Islanders that were procured in the late 1990s.
