The FA (Fighter Attack) is a new version of the advanced Aermacchi M-346 twin-engine trainer, designed and manufactured by Leonardo's Aircraft Division. It is an evolution of the dual role FT (Fighter Trainer) version, designed to meet Air Forces' growing and diversified operational requirements.

The FA is an extremely effective and low-cost tactical solution for the modern battlefield, as it offers Air Forces the greatest effectiveness with all the M-346's AJT (Advanced Jet Trainer) features, including the advanced and pre-operational training capabilities of the basic version. Let's discover why.
