By Kaiser David Konrad/Diálogo May 24, 2017 More than 30 years ago, when Embraer introduced the Tucano aircraft, it completely revolutionized the concept of military pilot training, achieving immediate international success with the production of 637 units. In 1986, faced with the possibility of participating in a U.S. bidding process to acquire 711 units of a single trainer for the U.S. Air Force and Navy Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS), Embraer developed a new version of the Tucano aircraft. The project was based on the United Kingdom’s Royal Air Force T-27G1 Short Tucano. The idea of modifying the Tucano as a fighter, and as a counterinsurgency aircraft, first arose within Embraer in the late 1980s, with upgrades being made to its engine using Pratt & Whitney Canada’s PT6A-67R 1,420-shp turboprop, which doubled the power of the aircraft. Next, to balance out the additional weight and power of the new engine, Embraer lengthened the fuselage by 1.37 meters, with a 0.37 m extension in front of the cockpit, and a 1-meter plug at the stern. This conceptual aircraft was built on a modified platform that included structural changes when compared with the original Tucano, evolving into the EMB-312H. The ‘H’ stands for the mission that was intended for the aircraft: to hunt helicopters. The EMB-312H had its maiden flight on September 9, 1991, just as the United States was launching the JPATS program. Embraer joined together with Northrop Grumman in 1993 to offer the EMB-312H, with 80 percent of its parts manufactured in the United States. A year later, it lost the deal to the Beechcraft T-6A Texan II, a successor to the Pilatus PC-9. That defeat was quickly overcome, and by 1995 the Brazilian Air Force (FAB, per its Portuguese acronym), was getting ready to launch the Amazon Surveillance System project (SIVAM, per its Portuguese acronym) and its operational arm, the Amazon Protection System (SIPAM, per its Portuguese acronym). As this concept was being developed, the need arose for a light-attack plane to fight smugglers and drug traffickers and “shield” the border airspace, and FAB launched a procurement program for 99 light-attack (AL-X) fighters. The EMB-312H was the starting point for developing a completely new aircraft using Pratt & Whitney Canada’s 1,600-shp PT6A-68C turboprop engine. The EMB-314 was born and given the A-29 Super Tucano designation by FAB. It made its first flight on June 28, 1999. Ever since the Super Tucano replaced the AT-26 Xavante jet in the FAB fighter pilot training, a series of new technologies has been introduced, improving training and preparing new fighter pilots to more easily operate advanced aircraft, as well as managing the complex systems that are necessary for mission success.“In Brazil, this aircraft is mainly used for fighter pilot training, and it performs that task quite well, as it allows the pilot to carry out various kinds of missions, thanks to its advanced weapons system, while also being able to carry out complex solo air combat [attack] missions, and launching precision weapons at a low operating cost,” said Air Force Colonel João Alexandro Vilela, a reservist who was a test pilot in FAB’s AL-X program, which created the A-29 Super Tucano. “The Super Tucano was developed with advanced avionics befitting fourth-generation planes, and it is at the forefront of aircraft in its class,” he emphasized. The state-of-the-art systems on board the A-29 Super Tucano have afforded operational benefits to the Specialized Fighter Operations Course held at the 2nd Squadron of FAB’s 10th Wing 5th Aviation Group, headquartered in Natal, in the state of Rio Grande do Norte, in northeastern Brazil. Brigadier General Pedro Luis Farsic, commander of 10th Wing, described the operational benefits afforded by replacing the AT-26 Xavante with the A-29: Flight Simulator: This feature has been of great benefit for familiarizing pilots with the aircraft systems. Additionally, it offers a savings in flight hours, as many missions can first be trained in the simulator, allowing for a reduction in the number of flights during certain stages. Video Feedback System: With debriefing stations and video feedback, the quality of the instruction has considerably improved. After the mission, the student can review his or her entire flight and, together with the instructor, analyze the main aspects to be improved. Additionally, the evaluation of training and air combat missions ends up being much more stringent, as it is possible to validate the results and analyze every detail of the pilot’s passes. On the AT-26 there was no video feedback system, and mission debriefing was solely reliant on the instructor’s memory. Precision Use: The A-29 is a precision weapons platform. Thus, radio navigation missions and missions involving the use of air weapons have a higher probability of success than with the AT-26. Navigation Systems: In addition to being more reliable, the A-29’s navigation aids are also more modern. The inertial navigation systems with EGIR (Embedded GPS, Inertial and Radar Altimeter), and the autonomous GPS are easy to operate, and they considerably enhance pilots’ operational awareness. The Color Multi-Function Displays (CMFD) show the chosen routes, training areas, and any other relevant information that the pilot has entered in his or her planning. And the autopilot significantly reduces the pilot’s workload, allowing for more comfort during longer missions. Electronic Warfare: The Data-Link system allows the fighter pilot trainee to make initial contact with a data-link network. Although basic, this training serves as preparation for using Data-Link on world-class fighter aircraft. Fleet modernization With a flight envelope of +7G and -3.5G, the Super Tucano protects pilots with a Kevlar-shielded cockpit, a 0-0 ejection seat, a windshield that is reinforced against bird strikes and redundancies in the most critical systems. For its navigation and flight, it is equipped with a state-of-the-art avionics system that includes a Head-Up Display (HUD), a Hands-on Throttle and Stick (HOTAS) system, an On-Board Oxygen Generation System (OBOGS), and lighting that is compatible with the use of night vision goggles. The Super Tucano is equipped with a state-of-the-art control panel made up of two liquid crystal displays furnished by AEL Systems that augments the pilot’s situational awareness and ushered in the information age for FAB, turning the pilot into a systems operator and bringing countless other new onboard technologies, capabilities, and training opportunities, which have become the benchmark that helps FAB set standards for its F-5 and A-1 fleet modernization programs. Its export version includes several improvements, such as a control panel with three multifunctional displays, and has been sold to Angola, Burkina Faso, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Indonesia, Mali, Mauritania, and the Dominican Republic. It also was selected for the Light Air Support program to provide counterinsurgency aircraft to allied nations of the United States. For example, the U.S. Air Force has been flying this aircraft in its 81st Fighter Squadron at Moody Air Force Base, with some of the units having already been delivered to Afghanistan, where they are being used tirelessly in combat, mainly to conduct convoy escort and close-air support missions. Since the Super Tucanos are wear-resistant, they are a good option for the Afghan Air Force (AAF), which undertakes close-air support operations in the desert, under extreme temperatures. Under a U.S.-funded cooperation program, the AAF is scheduled to receive 20 A-29s by 2018. In addition to the aircraft, the program includes training AAF crew in the United States, both to maintain the aircraft as well as to fly it. “I have to learn how to work with the A-29 system, how it operates so that my pilot can fly it, I have to become a professional maintainer and become familiar with all its characteristics… It is very important for us to become professionals so we can serve our country, our homeland, and our people,” said an Afghan Air Force captain participating in the program, whose identity remains anonymous due to security concerns. “I thank the U.S. government, which is helping the Afghan government build the capabilities to defend some geographically strategic points from insurgents there. We have the expectation that the Afghan Air Force will become better prepared professionally to defend our country from those who wish to entrap it,” he told Diálogo. The Super Tucano is truly a Brazilian combat aircraft, certified to carry 150 different weapon and sensor combinations suitable for conducting a wide range of missions, day and night, including light attack, close-air support, surveillance, land convoy escort and helicopter escort in C-SAR operations, as well as air interdiction and interception, while also proving to be an ideal platform for counterinsurgency. In addition, the Super Tucano has proved to be an excellent aircraft for advanced fighter pilot instruction and training. Thanks to the state-of-the-art sensors and electronics on board and its simulated training capabilities, it is possible to train more experienced and capable pilots in world-class fighter squadrons quicker and at a lower cost.

43SHARESShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr,Amanda Thomas Amanda is founder and president of TwoScore, a firm that channels her passion for the credit union mission and people to help credit unions under $100 million in assets reach … Web: www.twoscore.com Details Throughout the course of speaking at conferences, attending league events, and working with credit union clients all across the country, I get to meet a lot of credit union CEOs and marketers. When I ask them what is keeping them up at night, their answers typically include one or more of the following:Marketing isn’t translating into revenue for the credit unionOur marketing materials aren’t getting any responseI don’t know where to startDon’t know how to track our marketing effortsCompetition in the marketWhile there is no quick fix or “silver bullet,” these are all deeper issues that can be addressed and solved by taking a hard look at the marketing plan. Now that we are almost halfway through 2015, this is a great time to go back and evaluate your plan and identify the opportunities for improvement. If your plan doesn’t include all of these elements, add them in and watch your numbers begin to improve.RunoffThis is absolutely one of the most important numbers you should know as a marketer. You can’t build a plan to bring in loans if you don’t know how many you have to get to have positive growth. Here’s how to do it (to calculate runoff for 2015 planning):Total Loans as of 12/31/2013 + Total New Loans in 2014 = SUMSUM – Total Loans as of 2014 = RUNOFFExample: $50,000,000 + $10,000,000 = $60,000,000$60,000,000 – $55,000,000 = $5,000,000In this example, our loan runoff is $5,000,000, meaning we have to bring in $5 million in new loans before our loan portfolio is positive for the year.Product ProfitabilityHow much revenue are you getting from each loan type on your books? This will not only help you calculate ROI at the end of each campaign, but it will also help you know exactly how many loans you will need to reach your goals, making your job a whole lot easier. Let’s take used auto loans for example:Average loan balance: $17,935.96Average rate: 3.40%Average term: 60 monthsYield over first year: $595.93Yield over life of loan: $1,584.10If our goal is to get $2,000,000 in used auto loans this year and your runoff is $1 million, then you know you need to bring in $3 million of used auto loan balances to net $2 million in used auto loans.Brand PromiseWhat are you promising members as a result of them doing business with your credit union? This is not a calculation, but it is vitally important to your marketing plan because it motivates your members and even your employees and gives them a compelling reason to bank with, or work with, your institution. A solid brand promise is what your credit union can stand on and build on as a differentiator among your competitors. Here’s a great example to get you thinking about your brand promise:FedEx: “Your package will get there overnight. Guaranteed.” This gives FedEx a foundation for what to strive to deliver on every single day with every single customer. What can your credit union promise and deliver every single day?SegmentationIn a perfect world, our members would take action every time we put a message in front of them through email or newsletters or direct mail, etc. Unfortunately, they see about 10,000 “marketing” messages per day, making the likelihood of them responding to their credit union unlikely. However, segmentation helps you figure out the right message for the right people around common lifestyles or needs.Segmenting your membership base needs to be done regularly and can be done in a variety of ways:Demographics (age, income, etc.)Psychographics (attitudes, lifestyle choices, etc.)Behaviors (what affects buying and consumer decisions)Geographic area(s)Once you have completed this step, choose different segments for each campaign depending on what product or service you are offering. This will ensure you get the right members with the right message, increasing the opportunity for action.ROIYou know your revenue per loan and how much you spent on your auto loan campaign, but you need to know what your return on investment was and communicate it to your CEO and/or board.Revenue generated – Cost of campaign / Cost of campaign = ROIROI x 100 = ROI %In addition to educating you on exactly how effective your marketing efforts are, knowing this number helps you evaluate the success of each campaign and initiative in your plan. If your ROI % is less than 100%, this means you spent more on the campaign than the revenue it generated. However, having all of these steps in place will ensure that your marketing gets an even greater return.

The remarks came in the wake of a review of investment strategies following the 2011 actuarial review.The review concluded there was scope to reduce the investment risk over the next few years and increase the focus on investment income to reduce returns volatility over the coming years.In addition to a focus on equities, it suggested a number of other investment themes to reduce risk and protect assets.The annual report said: “Financial institutions may be forced to discard sound assets at attractive prices as they rebuild balance sheets in deleveraging economies. Such opportunities could allow the [three] funds to enhance investment returns.”The report also said the funds should reduce their reliance on benchmarks based on market capitalisation, which it said were sub-optimal, and ensure that the objectives and risk tolerances of individual portfolios within the fund are as closely aligned as possible with the fund’s overall objectives.Finally, according to the report, capital preservation and growth is more important than following an index.Lothian’s current benchmark is 64% equities, 30% alternatives and 5% index-linked Gilts.Despite strong investment returns in excess of expectations, the actual funding level has fallen, from 96% at the time of the last actuarial valuation on 31 March 2011 to 87% at 31 March 2013.This was largely a result of falling real Gilt yields, which caused an increase in the value of liabilities. Lothian Pension Fund (LPF), the pension fund for local government employees in the Edinburgh area, is backing equities to help reduce investment risk and protect assets over the next few years, according to its latest annual report.The £4.1bn (€4.8bn) fund – which returned 13.9% over the year to 31 March and 8.1% per year for the three years to that date – said equities were more attractively priced than “safe” government bonds over the long term.“High-quality, sustainable businesses with strong cash generation should be able to continue to prosper in the challenging environment envisaged,” it said.Lothian – along with the £312m Lothian Buses Pension Fund and the £140m Scottish Homes Pension Fund – is managed by the City of Edinburgh Council.

S&P said the fall in long-term inflation expectations would help schemes with the falling discount rate.However, should QE fail to generate economic growth, this would then further hamper schemes.“Funding levels for those in deficit could suffer a further 10-15% erosion if QE causes stagflation by failing to kick-start sustainable growth, warranting its continuation, but only causing inflationary expectations to move higher” S&P said.S&P data showed liabilities for the 50 schemes peaked at more than €500bn in 2012, with the current funding ratio at approximately 70%.Over the last year, S&P said the AA long-term corporate bond yields, commonly used in discount rate calculations, have halved to 1.45%.“The proximate causes of these falling bond yields have included a sluggish euro area economy,” it added.“Corporate bonds are not on the ECB’s latest QE asset purchase list, yet they have benefited indirectly from the prospective shortage of high-quality, long-duration assets as the ECB’s target asset pool covers government bonds with 2-30 year maturities.”It said it expected a euro-zone corporate scheme to reduce its DB discount rate by up to 150 basis points – with EDF, the French energy firm, seeing its liabilities increase by €7bn due to its 1.3 percentage point drop in discount rate.Using the calculations of inflation expectations and falls in discount rates, liabilities for corporates could rise by 11-18%.With this, the firm said it expected corporate schemes to manage the situation by continuing a shift to higher-yielding assets, increasing contributions, lowering benefits or reducing risk with insurance products.“In the medium term, the risk remains QE achieves nothing more than promoting stagflation in the euro area,” S&P said.“A combination of weak growth, inducing the ECB to continue with its aggressive monetary policy stance, and rising inflation would be a treacherous combination for DB pension schemes already struggling to contain their plan deficits.”In January, the ECB announced a €1.1trn QE programme to ensure the current deflationary pressure in the currency union ceased and moved back towards 2%.However, investment consultants across the Continent warned of the negative impact on DB pension scheme funding due to the combination of factors.Aon Hewitt global head of asset allocation, Tapan Datta, said the toxic cocktail of the economic situation in Europe could be worsened by QE failure to boost equity markets.Read Martin Steward’s analysis on the ECB move to boost inflation in the euro-zone The impact of euro-zone quantitative easing (QE) on long-term bond yields and defined benefit (DB) schemes could see funding drop by more than 15%, particularly in a stagflationary environment.The analysis of 50 corporate DB schemes in Europe showed the European Central Bank’s (ECB) €60bn a month QE plan could see liabilities increase by as much as 18%.The report, by Standard & Poor’s, suggested Europe’s top 50 companies rated by the firm would suffer discount rate falls due to the inflation-seeking central bank policy.However, even with investment returns of 8-12% achieved due to buoyant markets in 2014, “substantial growth” in deficits would occur due to the cocktail of average 30% underfunding and low returns on equities compared with bonds.
