The Senegalese Air Force signed a contract, today, at LAAD Defence & Security, for the acquisition of three A-29 Super Tucano light attack, advanced training turboprops from Embraer Defense & Security.
The order includes logistical support for the operation and the installation of a training system for pilots and mechanics (TOSS) in Senegal, bringing autonomy to that country's Air Force in preparing qualified personnel. The aircraft will be deployed on border surveillance and internal security missions.
"With this contract, we are adding one more customer from the African continent, where the Super Tucano has stirred great interest," said Luiz Carlos Aguiar, President of Embraer Defense & Security.
