IDEX is the one of the largest defense fairs of the world, attracted more than 1,200 companies of different sizes, from more than 60 countries.
Like the current trainer of the Brazilian Air Force Academy (AFA), the T-27 Tucano, the choice of the NOVAER aircraft’s name was defined through a contest involving all the employees of the AFA. The idea of the competition came both to honor the aviators and students of the Academy, as well as to remember a tradition started in the 80s, when it fell to the AFA’s effective to choose the name of the, today world-renowned, Tucano.
NOVAER’s T-Xc aircraft made yesterday, thursday October 23rd, its first retraction and extension of landing gear during a flight.
October 23rd is a significant date to the Brazilian aeronautic, for it represents the “Day of the Aviator” and the “Day of the Brazilian Air Force”, alluding to the first flight of Santos Dumont with the 14 BIS.
The company also demonstrated the variety of products that can emerge from the same platform, for example, an aero medical version suited for rescue and transportation in hostile regions or for harvesting of organs for transplant, a small load transporter or liaison aircraft to be used by the armed forces, and a turboprop military trainer with ejection seats (T-Xc MTP), aside from the known civilian transport version (with ballistic parachute) and the primary-basic military trainer, which NOVAER intends to offer to the Brazilian Air Force and other air forces of the continent and the world.
The company, which in coming months will be based in the city of Lages, develops the military trainer T-Xc, its civilian version U-Xc and new landing gear of the T-27 Tucano, among other projects.
This inspiring visit left us with many good things, among them the wise advices of someone who has gone on a huge entrepreneurship adventure in Brazil, founding EMBRAER back in the 70’s.
