Additional C295 SAR Aircraft Order From Brazil To Take Total to 15

Brazil has ordered an additional Airbus C295 search and rescue (SAR) aircraft that will eventually take to 15 the number of C295s in service with the Brazilian Air Force (FAB). 

This latest order constitutes the firming of an option included in an earlier contract in 2014. It was signed at the end of last year and will therefore be included in the 2017 order book. The three SAR aircraft will serve alongside 12 transport-configured C295s already delivered. 

The first of the three SAR aircraft was delivered last year and performed a successful five-week tour through four continents before arriving in Brazil. The aircraft demonstrated its maritime patrol and search and rescue capabilities in a wide range of environments and recorded 100% availability during the tour. 

The second FAB C295 SAR will be delivered in 2019 and the third in 2020.
