R.Niccoli - Training the Itlaian Way /Military/
No orders have been announced yet for the SF-260TD but the company says it's marketing the aircraft to existing customers and potential new buyers.
The SF-260TD’s right wing includes an infrared sensor which streams pictures to one of the cockpit displays to assist pilots flying at night and in poor weather.
While the SF-260TD is outwardly similar to previous variants of the type, it features a glass cockpit with high-resolution LCD colour screens.
The Italian Air Force is expected to take delivery of its first Master later this year.
