Embraer announced on March 1 that it has signed a services agreement with the Philippine Air Force to support its fleet of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft. This agreement will provide support for more than 200-part numbers of the A-29 Super Tucano.

“Staying close to our customers and supporting them in their missions is core to what we do,” said Rinaldo Piubeli Prado, Vice President of Worldwide Defense & Security Customer Support & Aftermarket Sales, Embraer Services & Support. “Leveraging on our customer support team in Asia Pacific, we are honoured to support the Philippine Air Force as they deploy the A-29 and utilize it to its fullest potential.”

The Philippine Air Force’s fleet of six A-29 Super Tucano aircraft was delivered in 2020 during the global pandemic, reflecting Embraer’s commitment to the Philippine Air Force. These aircraft are operated and maintained by the Philippine Air Force’s 15th Strike Wing

Last year, Embraer’s worldwide fleet of A-29 Super Tucano aircraft reached 500,000 flight hours. With more than 260 units delivered, the aircraft has already been selected by more than 15 air forces worldwide.
