First A-29 Super Tucano for Afghan Air Force Delivered for Training Mission

The first of 20 A-29 Super Tucano for Afghanistan Air Force arrived at Moody AFB on Sept. 26, in preparation for the Afghanistan pilot and maintenance training mission.
The A-29 is a light air support training aircraft that will be used to train 30 Afghan pilots and 90 Afghan maintainers as part of a requirement from the International Security Assistance Force to conduct training outside of Afghanistan.
The need for the A-29 comes as the current Afghan air force LAS aircraft, the Mi-35 attack helicopter, reaches the end of its service life in January 2016.
