MoD reassesses abortive attempt to give Brazilian Army additional aviation capability

23rd June 2020 - 10:30 GMT | by Flavia Camargos Pereira in London


The Brazilian MoD is reassessing a cancelled presidential order that would have allowed the army to operate an air arm.

Decree No. 10,386 was intended to meet the operational needs of the army. It was signed by Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro on 2 June but was withdrawn three days later, amid strong complaints from the Brazilian Air Force.

With this withdrawal, the previous Decree No. 93,206, issued in September 1986, was reactivated. It authorised the creation of an army aviation branch but stated that the ground force can only operate ‘helicopters necessary for the fulfilment of its mission'.
