IA-63 Pampa

The IA-63 Pampa is a single-engine, high-wing advance pilot trainer. Nineteen aircraft were orginally built during the 1980s by the Fabrica Militar de Aviones, the Argentine military depot that was privatized by Lockheed Martin in 1995. The Pampa is an extremely capable and economical trainer aircraft that was a competitor for the US Joint Primary Training System (JPATS) program. The aircraft continues to play a major part in the pilot training of the Argentine Air Force. In September 1999 Lockheed Martin Aircraft Argentina, S.A., a division of Lockheed Martin Aircraft & Logistics Centers, delivered a new IA-63 Pampa jet trainer to the Argentine Air Force, the first built since the late 1980s.
