“Latin America is of strategic importance for Airbus Military and FIDAE is a key platform. The presence of the A400M shows how important this event is for our company”, said Antonio Rodriguez Barberán, Head of Commercial of Airbus Military.

Among its main features the A400M are its technology with a glass cockpit (multiple function screens that show all the information coming from the aircraft system) and the fly-by-wire system, which represents a qualitative leap in comparison to the C-130s y C-160s versions. In addition, and thanks to its great cargo capacity (37 tons), the aircraft can perform cargo transport, troop transport, medical evacuation, aerial refueling, and electronic surveillance, among other tasks.

The A400M will land at FIDAE on Monday 26th, where it will be seen in a static display until Wednesday 28th. During that day the airplane will fly to Peru and it will leave Latin America the first of April. During that time, and as a part of the flying test campaign, the airplane will perform high altitude proofs in Bolivia (Cochabamba and La Paz).
