The information was shared by the government in an invitation to the local press on Tuesday.

According to the statement, the South African Air Force (SAAF) “will welcome a visit from Brazil, Embraer Defense & Security to demonstrate the capabilities of the C-390 military transport aircraft”.

The visit of the C-390 Millennium was agreed in April during a visit by a South African delegation, in order to carry out demonstrations and tests.

South Africa is identified by the Brazilian government as one of the potential interested parties in acquiring Embraer’s multi-role aircraft, although the air force is experiencing a lack of financial resources.
