FAdeA successfully conducted the first test flight of the IA-100 technology demonstrator on  August 8, 2016. The aircraft was flown for 58 minutes at a maximum height of 5,000ft during the test flight.


The IA100 project, which began in late 2014, was to design, develop and manufacture in less than 12 months, the first prototype (technology demonstrator) of a two-seater plane to cover the initial stages of training both military pilots and civilian, covering with a product designed and produced in Argentina these segments where airplanes are used usually imported.
