The Aerial Demonstration Squadron of the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), known as Esquadrilha de Fumaça, confirmed its presence in the 22nd International Air and Space Fair FIDAE, which will take place from April 5th to 10th, 2022.
With over 70 years of history, this aerobatic team performs their shows on the A-29 Super Tucano. Because it is an advanced training turbo propeller aircraft that features the latest advancements in avionics, manufactured by Embraer, it represents the beginning of a new era characterized by innovation and progress.
“Resuming air demonstrations in Brazil and participating in such an important international fair like FIDAE in Chile, means beginning our 70th year accomplishing the Smoke Squad’s mission, that is, promote FAB among our people and strengthen relationships with our neighbors. Presentations in the national territory and experience exchanges with Squads from other countries are of utmost importance for FAB and Fumaça”, pointed out Daniel García Pereira, Liutenant Colonel of the Fumaça Squad on their website.
The Squad has 55 high-performance aerobatics that in 2006 earned them the world record in inverted flight with 12 planes.
Alongside more than 3,900 demonstrations in Brazil and other countries, the Fumaça Squad, formed by 14 highly trained and qualified pilots, have performed in Germany, Argentina, Bolivia, Canada, Chile, Colombia, Egypt, Ecuador, United States, France, Guatemala, Guyana, Honduras, England, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Portugal, Dominican Republic, Surinam, Uruguay, and Venezuela.
