FAdeA IA-100 (Malvina)

Military Basic Trainer Aircraft

Argentina | 2023

"The FAdeA IA-100, now mired in a long development phase, is being touted as a military-grade basic trainer by Argentina aero-industry."

The FAdeA IA-100 is a planned two-seat, prop-driven basic trainer aircraft in development by Argentine industry. The design is based largely on the German Grob "G-120" series monoplane featuring composite construction, side-by-side seating, and a retractable wheeled undercarriage. These aircraft already serve Argentina, Mexico, Israel and others - the Argentine Air Force itself manages a fleet of some four G-120 aircraft already with ten more on order (2016). A first-flight for the FAdeA version is planned for sometime in 2016.

As planned, the IA-100 will retain many of the qualities inherent in the G-120 including the seating arrangement and reliance on lightweight-yet-strong composite construction material. Overall length is set to become 7.8 meters with a wingspan reaching 9.4 meters and a height of 2.4 meters. Empty weight is scheduled to be 640 kilograms against an MTOW of 950 kilograms. Power will come from a Lycoming AEIO-360 B1F inline engine developing approximately 180 horsepower driving a two-bladed propeller unit at the nose.

Estimated performance specs include a cruising speed of 200 miles per hour, a range out to 530 miles and a service ceiling of 18,000 feet. Rate-of-climb is listed at 1,200 feet per minute.

As it stands, the IA-100 product will be marketed to both military and civilian markets as a basic training for the former and a light utility aircraft for the latter.

FAdeA is also at work on the IA-73, another basic trainer (with pilot and co-pilot seated inline) aircraft as well as other potential military-minded projects looking to revive local Argentine aero-industry. The company was once known under the FMA brand label and delivered the IA-58 "Pucara" of 1975 and the IA-63 "Pampa" of 1988.

August 2016 - It was announced that a prototype IA-100 had completed its first flight, this coming on August 8th, 2016.

September 2020 - The Argentine military will be accessing pension and retirement funds to reboot development of the IA-100. Development was halted when national debt issues and economic woes crippled the already fragile Argentine economy.
