New Training Aircraft for Peru

Locally Assembled US Aircraft for Basic Training

On 27 February the Peruvian Air Force’s Maintenance Service (SEMAN), presented the Air Force (FAP) with its fourth AMD Alarus CH-2000 trainer, in a ceremony presided over by Peruvian Defence Minister, Walter Martos Ruiz.

FAP Operations Command received the plane after assembly in Peru. The force will receive a total of 18 from kits provided by the factory in Georgia, USA, although one of the initial three was already lost in an accident last year.

The Alarus CH-2000 is a two-seater basic trainer and the aircraft will be assigned to the FAP Pilot Training School No. 51 at Pisco-Ica Air Base. With flight endurance of up to five and a half hours, a cruise speed of 184km/h and a service ceiling of 9,000ft, the CH-2000 speaks to the basic training requirements of the FAP.

Starting in 2018, by a contract with Canadian company Zenair Ltd, SEMAN acquired the production kits and rights for assembly in Peru of the units intended for the FAP in the coming months under the Antarqui project.
