Aermacchi MB.326

Designed by Ermanno Bazzocchi and first flown on 10 December 1957, the Aermacchi MB.326 light attack and training aircraft was one of the most effective examples of its type ever built and was produced in many different variants, depending on the customer's requirements. The potential of the basic MB.326 as a light ground-attack aircraft was first realised in the 326A, which was fitted with underwing hardpoints. The MB.326G variant was fitted with a more powerful Viper 20 engine. The most important version was the MB.326K single-seater of 1970, which was used in the advanced and close support roles.

Airmach 326 foi produzido pela Embraer, no Brasil, sob licença da italiana Aeromachi. Voei esse avião, explorei e extrapolei todos os seus limites de desempenho previstos pelo fabricante e aprovados pelos Órgãos homologadores. Tenho o record mundial de altitude num desses aviões, em janeiro de 1975, no rota do Rio de janeiro para Anápolis, subi até 53 mil pés de altitude QNH. Noutra ocasião voei sem pouso intermediário, desde Santa Maria/RS até Caravelas/Ba. Fui reconhecido pela Embraer e pelo Ministro da AEronáutica quando completei o pouso da milésima hora de vôo nessa aeronave, em 1981, Santa Maria/RS.
