Airbus will deliver three Airbus C295 search and rescue (SAR) aircraft to Brazil by year end. 

The contract involves a five-year full in service support. The SAR aircraft will join 12 transport-configured C295 aircraft, taking the total FAB C295 fleet to 15.

In addition to the aircraft fleet, the FAB is also using a Full Flight Simulator for the C295 at the Air Base of Manaus-Brasil facility that allows it complete autonomy in the training of its crew.

The medium sized tactical airlifter provides wide versatility and flexibility, necessary for personnel, troop and bulky/palletized cargo transportation, casualty evacuation, communication and logistic duties, and air-dropping. 

The aircraft will perform ISR roles including anti-submarine and ship warfare, airborne early warning, and maritime surveillance.
