Guatemala becomes first export customer for Pampa III trainer
Guatemala has committed to acquiring two Pampa III aircraft from Argentina, the first export success for the advanced jet trainer.
The nation’s main aerospace manufacturer, the Argentine Aircraft Factory Brig. San Martín (FAdeA), will deliver the two examples under a $28 million contract that also includes training and maintenance services.
This agreement was signed in Olivos, Argentina, in the presence the presidents of Argentina and Guatemala and senior officials of both countries.
The aircraft will be used for pilot training and border control of Guatemala, and will be the same configuration as those currently used by the Argentine air force, and will be delivered before the end of this year.
‘This sale is a historic milestone for our country,’ Antonio Beltramone, president of FAdeA, said.
‘FAdeA returns to being an exporter of technology of very high complexity, demonstrating the great capability that we Argentines possess.’
