Built for the mission.

Sierra Nevada Corporation, in partnership with Embraer Defense & Security, is proud to present the U.S.-built, combat-proven A-29 as part of the U.S. Air Force’s Capability Assessment of Non-Developmental Light Attack Platforms.

Why Light Attack

A U.S. Air Force light attack aircraft (LAA) facilitates:

  • A lower cost alternative for fighting in permissive environments, including insurgencies
  • Reduced wear and tear on more expensive fighter fleets
  • More training time to build pilot proficiency and skill sets

Why A-29

The A-29 is the ideal OA-X experiment solution. With an active production line and low operation and sustainment costs, the A-29 can easily transition into the field to enhance warfighter support and bring greater value and affordability to the American taxpayer.

  • Made in the USA, creating U.S. jobs
  • Combat-proven and selected by 14 air forces worldwide
  • Cost effective with low maintenance footprint
  • Only aircraft in its class with a U.S. Military Type Certificate
