Just before the end of July Brazil signed a deal with Airbus Defence and Space for the purchase of three Airbus (fka EADS / CASA) C295 search and rescue aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force. The trio will join the Força Aérea Brasileira’s (FAB) existing fleet of 12 C295 tactical airlifters.

In addition to the aircraft fleet, the FAB is also using a Full Flight Simulator for the C295 at the Air Base of Manaus-Brasil, that allows it complete autonomy in the training of its crew.

More than 140 C295s have now been ordered by 19 countries.
