Air Force Gets First Tucano Deliveries


Embraer has delivered the first four of a dozen Super Tucano aircraft to the air force. The turboprops are primarily for pilot training but can be modified for anti-insurgency roles. In its press release, the Brazilian plane manufacturer said the Chile deal includes a flight simulator, a mission planning station and a mission debriefing station.

But... what happened with our fleet of Pillan aircrafts?

We invested millions of dollars to build the Pillans in Chile to finally go to Embraer and purchase the Super Tucanos's? (a superb platform I must add...)

A lot of talking about interoperability in Chile but not much walking...
