Wide Range of Aerial Platform Solutions
Unsurprisingly, perhaps, the star attraction of Embraer’s significant presence in Bogotá this week is the C-390 MILLENIUM. This new-generation multi-mission airlifter brings unrivaled mobility, productivity and operational flexibility to its potential users. A truly multi-mission aircraft, the C-390 can be rapidly reconfigured to accommodate a wide variety of roles: the aircraft is designed with the structural strength to deal with wheeled and tracked armoured vehicle payloads, for example, of up to 26,000kg.
The company also presented a full catalogue of aerial platforms in addition to the MILLENIUM. The Colombian Air Force already has a number of AT-29B SUPER TUCANOs in inventory, for instance, while the Special Transportation Aircraft refers to an initiative to provide the ideal aircraft for any kind of mission, from short-range flights to long trips. For instance, the Legacy 500 FIS (Flight Inspection Systems) is a multi-mission state-of-the-art platform. while the PHENOM 300 is ideally suited for medevac missions, the company states.
