Four out of the six new Embraer Defense and Security A-29 “Super Tucano” close-air support aircraft, which are intended to beef up the Philippine Air Force (PAF)’s close-air support capabilities, have landed in Clark Air Base, Angeles City, Pampanga on Saturday.

Department of National Defense (DND) spokesperson Arsenio Andolong said the four aircraft have landed in Clark Air Base around 1:06 while the other two are still in New Delhi, India, awaiting for clearance and would be flown to the Philippines at a later date.

Embraer company pilots flew the aircraft from the company airfield in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and made fueling stops in the Canary Islands, Portugal, Malta, Egypt, Bangladesh, the United Arab Emirates, India, Thailand, and Vietnam before landing in the Philippines.

Andolong said Embraer pilots will train PAF pilots selected to fly the “Super Tucano” for two months as part of the agreement under the Technical Inspection and Acceptance Committee.
