Embraer will promote its complete portfolio of products and innovative solutions for the defense and security markets at FIDAE (Feria Internacional del Aire y del Espacio) 2022, which will take place from April 5th to 10th at the Arturo Merino Benítez International Airport in Santiago, Chile. The multi-mission KC-390 Millennium aircraft from the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) and the light attack and training aircraft, A-29 Super Tucano, from the Chilean Air Force (FACh), will be on static display.
“We are glad to be back at this important event for Latin America, which is a great opportunity to meet with partners, suppliers and customers from the industry,” said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO, Embraer Defense & Security. “With products in over 60 countries, Embraer Defense & Security has a modern portfolio, ready to serve global market demands with comprehensive solutions that go far beyond aircraft to meet land, sea, space and cyber environments.”
Since its first delivery to the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) in 2019, the KC-390 Millennium has proven its capability, reliability and outstanding performance on domestic and overseas missions, and can be quickly available to respond to emergency or humanitarian situations. The aircraft has already been selected by two NATO nations: Portugal and Hungary.
Rugged and versatile, the A-29 aircraft can perform a wide range of missions, including light attack, surveillance, aerial interception and counterinsurgency. The aircraft was selected by over 15 air forces all over the world, including the United States Air Force (USAF) and many Latin American countries, such as Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and the Dominican Republic.
