BUENOS AIRES - Tecnam has announced that the Argentinian Air Force has ordered eight Tecnam P2002JF single seat training aircraft for its Military Aviation Academy. The Tecnam P2002JF is a two-seat, single engine, low wing aircraft popular for basic flight training needs.

Local Tecnam distributor Aerotec Argentina SA was awarded the contract to supply the Tecnam fleet to the Argentinian Air Force under a lease purchase agreement. The deal is estimated to be worth ARS28.6 million ($2 million). The aircraft will be assembled at Aerotec Argentina SA's Rivadavia, Mendoza Province facility under agreement with Costruzioni Aeronáutiche Tecnam SRL.

During the first quarter of 2016, the Argentinian Air Force initiated technical studies to incorporate a new simple trainer "screener" aircraft as the first step in the flight training program at its Military Aviation Academy.

Argentina is also working on the IA-73 UNASUR I, along with Ecuador and Venezuela, to meet its basic flight training needs. Argentina intends to acquire up to 50 UNASUR I trainers to replace its Beechcraft T-34 Mentors. It is not clear how the P2002JF's will be integrated into the fleet. They may serve as a stopgap until the IA-73s are available. They may also be used in conjunction with the IA-73s.

MOSCOW - Russia is set to deliver refurbished helicopters to Angola and Egypt. Deliveries to Angola will occur before the end of September, and shipments to Egypt should occur soon, as well.

Russian Helicopters told Tass News Agency that it has upgraded Mi-24Ps under a contract signed with Angola years ago. These helicopters, which were worked on at the 150th Aircraft Repair Plant near Kaliningrad, are due to be delivered before the end of September.

Tass News Agency quoted Russian Helicopters as saying in a statement, "The helicopters’ service life has been extended considerably, which will allow Angola’s Armed Forces to operate the helicopters for a long time."

It is unclear how many Mi-24Ps Angola is receiving.

Separately, Russian Helicopters is ready to return Egyptian Mi-8Ts to Cairo, following repair work at a plant in Novosibirsk. So far, three helicopters have been overhauled, under a contract reached in December 2015.

Russian Helicopters will work on 41 Egyptian Mi-8Ts and three Mi-17-1Vs under the December contract. The Russian firm is also training Egyptian technicians at the Helwan Factory for Developed Industries on the repair of the helicopters.
