Upgrade Enables Night Flying
Work on the Tucano was undertaken by Redimec at the Área de Material Río Cuarto, the service’s principal maintenance centre. Four aircraft are already going through the process, while a second contract for a further eight awaits signature. The upgrade includes a new multifunction display with synthetic vision, as well as new communications and navigation systems. These modification enable flights to be made with night vision systems, so both internal and external lighting systems were also adapted.
