The contract includes logistics support for aircraft operation as well as a complete training system for Lebanese Air Force pilots and mechanics. The sale was approved in June by the U.S. State Department.

The aircraft sale is part of a larger, more comprehensive package, including infrastructure improvements, that will be fulfilled by other parties not involved in the Embraer/SNC partnership. The planes, which are currently in operation with 10 Air Forces around the world, will be built in the Jacksonville, Florida.

“The selection of the A-29 by the Lebanese Air Force is a great testament to the superiority of the Super Tucano and its ability to meet the challenges of the operating theater in the Middle East,” said Jackson Schneider, president and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security. “The Super Tucano is the best and most capable aircraft in the market with a proven record of success with Air Forces around the world.”

The A-29 Super Tucano is a durable, versatile and powerful turboprop aircraft capable of carrying out a wide range of light air support (LAS) missions, even operating from unimproved runways. Due to its original concept design, high speed and excellent maneuverability, the Super Tucano is the only aircraft in its class to present superb cockpit visibility, extremely high efficiency and low vulnerability in the close air support role. The blend of advanced, robust and redundant systems allows the aircraft to outmaneuver and outperform nearly any competitor in its class.

“We are excited at the opportunity to provide Lebanon with these aircraft, which are proving to be an innovative and cost-effective solution for demanding military organizations around the world. It is ideal for the missions and operational environment faced by Lebanon and a host of other nations. We look forward to helping the Lebanese achieve a modern Air Force through use of the A-29 Super Tucano,” said Taco Gilbert, vice president of business development for SNC’s ISR business area.

After more than 10 years in service, the Super Tucano has gained an excellent performance record, earning Embraer more than 230 firm orders. With more than 140 certified load configurations, it is equipped with advanced electronic, electro-optic, infrared and laser system technologies, as well as secure radio systems with data links and unrivalled munitions capacity.
