Pampa III takes first flight

Argentina's FAdeA IA-63 Pampa III advanced training aircraft took its first flight earlier in August, officials announced.
The Pampa III, provided through an upgrade programme by Israeli company Elbit Systems, maintains the general characteristics of the Pampa II, but incorporates two multi-functional screens, daytime and nighttime modes, and a simulation system that allows pilots to train more efficiently. The air force is also considering adding Elbit's Targo helmet-mounted display (HMD) system
Following approval of the trial aircraft's subsystems, it is expected that the Targo HMD will be standard across the Pampa III fleet.
The cockpit includes an Elbit SU 967 heads up display.
