In the presence of the President of the Nation, Ing. Mauricio Macri; and of the Minister of Defense, Dr. Oscar Aguad; FAdeA presented the three aircraft IA 63 Pampa III that will be delivered before the end of the year to the Argentine Air Force. In this way, after 10 years, FAdeA returns to producing aircraft in series.

On the occasion, national, provincial and municipal authorities were also present; national and provincial legislators, authorities of the Argentine Air Force, FAdeA staff and special guests.

The three aircraft, identified with production license plates 1028, 1029 and 1030, are completing the test stage with test flights. During these tests, all the equipment of the aircraft is tested, including the latest generation avionics systems with which they are equipped.

In the framework of his message, President Macri said: "Presenting these three Pampa III aircraft, which will soon take care of our borders, is a joy and a pride for all. Today we live the rebirth of something that is the pride of the people of Cordoba. Because this factory is awakened again, this factory starts to walk, like all of Argentina, towards the future. Because having set ourselves up under a professionalism scheme, we began to generate trust and other clients appear who want to come and work with FAdeA. That is why today we have the possibility of working not only for the Argentine State but also for the private sector and, in addition, for the world. Because this is one of the few factories in the world that designs, that builds prototypes and produces. What we want is that by 2023, 50% of the production of FAdeA be for the Argentine State and 50% for the world.

For his part, Antonio Beltramone, president of FAdeA, said: "After 10 years, we return to manufacture aircraft. The presentation of these three Pampas III are the symbol of the reactivation of our factory, it is a joy to be able to share it with you. These aircraft are the fruit of the effort and commitment of many people and teams; not only from FAdeA, but also from the Ministry of Defense, Cabinet Headquarters, Air Force, the Flight Test Center, its pilots, General Directorate of Joint Military Aeronavigation and, of course, the incredible team of professionals who daily leave everything behind. This factory. " And I add: "Today we can affirm that 2018 will be a record year for FAdeA. On the one hand, we certify the new Pampa III model before the aeronautical authority and the 3 planes that we are presenting today will be delivered, which are currently carrying out their last flights; and on the other hand, we have closed the largest number of contracts outside the Argentine state. We have started a path that has no return, we have been able to reduce the company's deficit by more than 80% and lead it with new long-term projects ".
