Spares needed for 'Nomad' APG system

From the Philippine News Agency (Jun 20): Spares needed for 'Nomad' APG system
The Philippine Air Force (PAF) is now looking for manufacturers capable of supplying it with spare parts needed for the maintenance of the APG systems of its GAF N-22B "Nomad" patrol and transport planes.

Budget for the project is placed at PHP7,190,981.

Submission and opening of bids is on July 7, 9:00 a.m. at the PAF Procurement Center Conference Room, Villamor Air Base, Pasay City, said Air Force bids and awards chair Brig. Gen. Nicolas Parilla.

The "Nomad" is a twin-engined turboprop, high-wing, short takeoff and landing aircraft.

It was designed and built by the Australian Government Aircraft Factories (GAF) at Fishermens Bend, Melbourne.

Major users of the design have included the Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia, the Australian Army and the Australian Customs Service.

The "Nomad" is to be re-engineered and put back into production as the GippsAero GA18.

The PAF has an estimated 20 units of the aircraft in its inventory.
