Tactical Air SF-260TP Loading for Live CAS Sortie

Tactical Air Support, Inc.  is one of a very small group of commercial air service providers now delivering light inert ordnance for DoD Joint Terminal Attack Controller (JTAC) training.  We currently use the Embraer A-29 Super Tucano and the Marchetti SF-260TP (pictured above).

The SF-260TP provides an extremely cost-effective live CAS platform, fully aerobatic and equipped with four weapons pylons.  We currently carry four Mk-76s per sortie, but are pursuing additional rack options to double that number.

We fly under Public Aircraft Operations, with approved weapons loads and release clearances directly from the manufacturer.  Our aircraft are currently cleared for ordnance operations on the Ft. Bragg ranges, and we are working to expand to other DoD ranges as well.

Normal operations for us include day and night ops, live and simulated CAS, NVG ops, IZLID / IR marker targeting, and multi-plane operations.

Please feel free to contact us if you need commercial CAS.  We can work with you on contracting details, WDZ footprints, range clearances, and matching our various platform capabilities to your requirements.
