SP's MAI - - AEROSPACE -

Em­braer De­fense and Se­cu­rity has re­cently de­liv­ered four light at­tack and tac­ti­cal train­ing A-29 Su­per Tu­cano air­craft to Indonesian Air Force (IAF) at a cer­e­mony held in its fa­cil­ity in Gav­ião Peixoto, São Paulo, Brazil. In­done­sia is the first op­er­a­tor of Su­per Tu­cano in the Asia-Pa­cific re­gion.

These four A-29 Su­per Tu­cano are from the ini­tial batch of eight air­craft pur­chased by the IAF in 2010. The IAF has since or­dered a sec­ond batch of eight Su­per Tu­canos as part of their equip­ment mod­erni­sa­tion ex­er­cise, bring­ing the to­tal num­ber of or­ders to 16 air­craft.

“We are hon­oured that the Indonesian Air force has se­lected the A-29 Su­per Tu­cano as the pre­ferred choice in their fleet mod­erni­sa­tion pro­gramme”, said Luiz Car­los Aguiar, Pres­i­dent of Em­braer De­fense and Se­cu­rity. “The Su­per Tu­cano is a ma­ture, proven and mis­sion­ready air­craft with more than 160 units in op­er­a­tion glob­ally.”
