Super Tucano Turboprop Debuts At Singapore
Embraer will show their
Super Tucano military trainer aircraft for the first time on the
Asian continent during Asian Aerospace 2006, one of the three
biggest aviation trade events in the world. The event opens on
February 21 at the Changi Exhibition Center, in Singapore.
The Super Tucano will take a tour of Asia and the Middle East
after the trade show, when a number of air forces will have the
opportunity to evaluate the airplane. The aircraft departed from
Brazil in early February and covered 11,500 nautical miles (21,298
Super Tucano is an evolution of the original Tucano turboprop
trainer, of which 650 are in operation with approximately 17 air
forces worldwide, including those in Brazil, Britain, France, Egypt
and Kuwait. The aircraft is available in single-and-two-seat
versions, and is being marketed to air forces around the world.
The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) ordered 99 Super Tucano aircraft,
of which 25 are already in service. The fleet is in operation in
advanced training missions and is also deployed alongside eight
other Embraer-built Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance
(ISR) jets in the Amazon Surveillance Program (SIVAM).
In December 2005, the Colombian air force announced an order for
25 Super Tucano light attack aircraft, marking the first export
deal ever for this type of aircraft. Embraer forecasts demand for
150 to 200 Super Tucanos in Asia and the Middle East over the
coming five years.
