    And yet “training aircraft” hasn’t been mentioned anywhere officially

    i still say it’s a typo for “transport” as in C295s for delivery next year
    The 295s were mentioned earlier in the article alongside the IPVs.

    Now it's possible the journalist may have been briefed about replacement training aircraft in the pipeline and misheard/misprinted it as "Piper" Training Aircraft.
    It was the year of fire...the year of destruction...the year we took back what was ours.
    It was the year of rebirth...the year of great sadness...the year of pain...and the year of joy.
    It was a new age...It was the end of history.
    It was the year everything changed.

      And again given the comments about how limited the department is in the procurement area and other projects as well, I still don't see the PC9s going anywhere till long after 2025.

        “The capital allocation for Defence will increase by €35 million or 25 per cent to €176 million. This is a step change in capital funding for Defence, and will be used to prioritise the development of a Primary Radar capability to secure our airspace and upgrades in Force Protection and Defence Forces infrastructure projects.”

          Yes because, journalist don't have access to other sources of information other then offical press releases.
          It was the year of fire...the year of destruction...the year we took back what was ours.
          It was the year of rebirth...the year of great sadness...the year of pain...and the year of joy.
