      Surely Chileans, and with them a dozen other states, not to mention Americans are not fools if they operate such machines. Gluttonous and super-expensive jet planes will not chase after nothing. People know the value of money

        From lack of money, to the first MANPADS, and then all the pilots will be asked for a vacation, I recommend to Azerbaijan that it is a worthy choice.

    ... Just right, for their locality:
    The Embraer EMB 314 Super Tucano, also called ALX or A-29, is a turboprop light Attack aircraft. Designed to work in conditions of high temperature and humidity in extremely difficult terrain.
