Embraer will take the C-390 Millennium to South Africa where it will perform a presentation to the country’s Air Force at Waterkloof Air Base on November 24.
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 event will be attended by the defense minister and the head of the air force, according to the government.
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.
The SAAF has grounded its Gripen fighters and planned to upgrade six aging C-130B Hercules to keep them in service.
