The Philippine Air Force (PAF) commissioned an FA-50PH flight simulator on 14 June, this device having been provided by Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI), the maker of the jets.

The acceptance, turnover and blessing facility occurred at Basa Air Base in Pampanga, which is home of the 5th Fighter Wing that operates all 12 FA-50 light fighters of the PAF. Philippine Defense Secretary Delfin Lorenzana and the South Korean Ambassador Dong-Man Han attended the event.

KAI had won the $7.8 million contract to provide a ground-based simulator and integrated logistics support. It includes cockpit, navigation and video systems.
