The contract includes logistic support for the operation of these aircraft as well as the set-up of a training system for pilots and mechanics in Ghana that will provide the autonomy of the Ghana Air Force in preparing qualified personnel.

The A-29 Super Tucano will be deployed for advanced training, border surveillance and internal security missions.

“We are pleased to welcome Ghana Air Force as a new operator of the Super Tucano, an aircraft that is already consolidated in the global market, expanding our presence in Africa”, said Jackson Schneider, President of Embraer Defense & Security. “We are confident that, with this acquisition, the Air Force of Ghana will be equipped with the most appropriate and proven solution to attend its operational needs”

The A-29 Super Tucano is currently used by ten air forces in three continents. It was also selected by the United States Air Force (USAF) for its Light Air Support (LAS) program. After more than ten years in action, the Super Tucano has gained an excellent performance record: over 230,000 flight hours and 30,000 combat hours. Embraer has received more than 210 firm orders and has delivered more than 190 aircraft.

The Super Tucano is a robust and powerful turboprop aircraft capable of carrying out a wide range of missions, including close air support and intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. With more than 130 weapons configurations certified, it is equipped with advanced electronic, electro-optic, infrared and laser system technologies, as well as secure radio systems with data links and unrivalled munitions capacity. The Super Tucano is the only combat proven and fully operational light attack/advanced training aircraft in the global market. This makes it highly reliable and allows for an excellent cost-benefit ratio for a wide range of military missions, even operating from unpaved runways and in hostile environments.

The contract will come into effect once certain conditions have been fulfilled. These conditions are expected to be fulfilled during the second half of 2015.
