Embraer delivers final A-29 Super Tucano and F-5M aircraft to FAB
Embraer successfully performed the first flight of the A-1M prototype at its manufacturing plant in Gavião Peixoto, in outstate São Paulo, during a ceremony attended by the Aeronautics Commander, Air Force General Juniti Saito, and officers from the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) high command.
The aircraft’s flight test campaign will soon begin. The A-1M programme provides for refurbishing and upgrading 43 FAB AMX subsonic fighters. Ten aircraft are already at the company’s facilities and the first deliveries are planned for 2013.
