It is an important and strategic partnership for the Brazilian Army. Army Aviation is honored to enter in this partnership. We showed our operational capabilities installed in the Army Aviation”, he stated.

I’ve had been actually overhelmed at the facilities, personell and the quality that you have in the Brazilian Aviation force. You are completely self reliable, could do everything on your own facilities here and cover everything. From safety to maintenance and training at highest standard, incredibly impressive,” said US Army Brigadier General Lynn Heng.
