EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2012: Embraer EMB-314 Super Tucano

By Fred Harl
An interesting aircraft on display midweek was a privately-owned Embraer EMB-314B1 Super Tucano operated by Tactical Air Support, Inc. of Reno, NV.  This Super Tucano, a civil variant of the sophisticated trainer/armed   reconnaissance aircraft from the Defense and Security division of the wildly successful Brazilian Embraer aerospace company, is used for close air support simulation for U.S. military forces.  Tactical Air Support Inc. purports to have 14 weapons school instructors with experience in all aspects of military air operations, also flying the L-29 Super Delfin with P&W J-60 engines to simulate the A-10 class of attack aircraft.  For more information on Tactical Air Support, Inc. please visit
