Sorry Dan my mistake that one is operated by SEMAR but its origin is American

Semar has two models one is the Spartaam and another VTOL that is similar to the Arcturus T-20 JUMP but that one is an American one.

This one below is the Spartaam this is Mexican in origin and designed by the INIDETAM, that is the research branch of SEMAR it is the Instituto de Investigación y Desarrollo Tecnológico de la Armada de México, that means roughly speaking research institute of development of Technology of the Mexican navy

Peruvian designed UAV

The Project Development Center of the Peruvian Air Force (CEDEP), on March 13, 2008 presented a prototype of what would be the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), a small ship that would capture images and information from inaccessible areas . This aircraft made its first test flight at the Las Palmas Air Base, starting a new stage in the development of aeronautical technology.

615674

615678
615675


Ricuk and Amaru, the latest creations of CIDEP, are the result of different UAVs that have been improved characteristics and capabilities.
The Peruvian Air Force (FAP) has since 1993 the Center for Research and Development of Projects (CIDEP), which was created to develop simulators of Cessna A-37 aircraft. The project was in charge of the electronic service officers. After the successful result they continued with the development of a series of simulators that facilitate training and different exercises for aircraft, anti-aircraft systems, rifle shooting and parachutes.

In addition to UAVs, the EcoBox System is developed in CIDEP to facilitate communication between pilots, control towers and simulators.
Since then, CIDEP has grown and improved its capabilities over the almost 25 years it has as a unit of the FAP, especially from the new requirements, new technologies and the development of new capabilities of the staff of that unit . Thus, since 2010, they began to work on the development of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), which have been in continuous improvement until they reach the recent Ricuk ("Observer" in Quechua) and Amaru ("red-eyed snake" according to Inca mythology), which show all the knowledge acquired in the years that CIDEP has been operating.

Brazilian made and designed UAV named Hawk


The falcão / hawk flight
An ambitious project, developed for military purposes, may lead Brazil to become an important pole of research, development and production of new technologies related to unmanned aerial vehicles, the vants, also known as drones. Conceived for use in the Armed Forces, the Falcão [Hawk], as it was named, will be the largest national military vant. If the project advances, that aircraft will be 11 meters wide, from one end of the wing to the other, with a minimum autonomy of 16 hours of flight. May provide services in maritime and border surveillance operations, search and rescue missions, in the fight against drug trafficking and environmental crimes and in the security and monitoring of major events.

From the interest of the MinDef to form the base of the Air Force Argentina in Chamical, Province of La Rioja as the first base exclusively of UAV's in the Argentine Republic, the Argentine Ministry of Defense developed the project of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Vigia 2A.

Originally as Project PAE-22365, Vigia 2A, was devised by the Center for Applied Research (CIA) dependent on the Aeronautical University Institute (IUA) under funding from the Ministry of Science and Technology. This military development is a demonstration of the intention of the FAA to develop a tactical medium apparatus of national design, unlike the SARA Project, addressed by INVAP and the Ministry of Security, from which dual and not specifically military applications arise. Then faced by the FAA, as project FAS-0091.

The Vigia 2A is a MALE device (Medium Altitude, Long Endurance / Medium Altitude, Long Range), Class II, with autonomous navigation capacity and via satellite link. Framed under the standard USAR (STANAG 4671 Annex IX) its development has evolved from a 1: 2 scale model (Class I) in which the concept of flight, command and control has been tested. Your navigation is controlled from an automatic pilot Cloud Cap Technology Piccolo II + GPS / INS with capacity for automatic takeoff and landing, it has the capacity of radial and satellite link, before the interruption of the same conventionally so you can return safely to your base. You can enter and process a maximum of 1000 waypoints, your on-board computer verifies flight conditions and operation of each of your systems, with the ability to detect anomalies and define emergency situations. This equipment is regulated by export controls of the United States.

For emergency situations, Vigia 2A has a ballistic parachute as standard equipment.

As a useful load, it has a usable space of 400x400x800 and up to 50kg. In the prototype, it is ballasted to maintain the center of gravity of the device.


Dimensions:

Wing Aerea Surface : 8 m2
Spread: 0 m
Total length: 1 m
Total Height: 92 m
Width of the fuselage: 45 m
Maximum takeoff weight: 330 kg

The Argentine Aircraft Factory -FAADEA- signed a contract with the LAVIASA company in Mendoza, for the manufacture under license of the agricultural aircraft PA-25 El Puelche.

The project will be developed in two stages, in the first the structures will arrive almost completed from Mendoza and FAdeA will assemble the complete aircraft, as well as the training of the personnel affected to the project. In the second phase, LAVIASA will provide parts and FAdeA will add the construction of the structures to complete the plane.



Keep in mind that the PA-25 El Puelche is built since 1998 by Latinoamericana de Aviación S.A. (LAVIASA) according to patent license for the manufacture of the Piper PA-25 Pawnee, one of the most successful agricultural aircraft.

The Puelche is a monoplane and low-wing single-seater, designed especially for the application by spraying pesticides and fungicides, the spraying of seeds and fertilizers, and fighting forest fires.

Dear Pegasus,

we had a topic for CBA-123;


and please focus on little known prototypes and Projects.
This thread is a general latin american topic, it is hard to see but during the 16th and 17th centuries our nations were part of the Portuguese-Spanish Empire, so for almost a century we were the same country in the early 10th and 11th century Galicia was a kingdom uniting the portuguese and Spanish kingdoms of Castille, so basically we are very homogeneous in origin so i wanted to use the latin american in general topic in aviation, why? well because as you can see many programs are duplicated, each country can develop UAVs, and light single engine propeller aircraft, Brazil and Mexico posses the most developed industries to the level of that a common Brazilian and Mexican program could lead to a much efficient line of aircraft, already Brazil and Argentina are partners in the KC-390, and Chile has been part of many embraer projects, it seems that Brazil is the leader in aerospace but the reality is Mexico via all the manufacturers building aircraft parts in its territory also makes parts for Embraer aircraft, regardless of what politicians and brands say, most modern aircraft are multinational projects FAdeA from Argentina Produces many parts for KC-390, and even Frisa Aerospace from Mexico build engine parts for Embraer aircraft, so names like Boeing in reality are more like Airbus, a composite of parts made and designed in many countries

ENAER from Chile builds some parts of the vertical stabilizer of ERJ-145

Frisa Forjados reported it has entered into a long-term agreement with Pratt & Whitney, to produce and supply forged rings and casings for the new PurePower PW1000G turbofan engines. Specific terms of the deal were not announced, though the forger indicated it carries a value above $150 million.

Pratt & Whitney’s PW1000G is a high-bypass geared turbofan engine that has been selected to power several commercial aircraft programs, including the Bombardier CSeries, Mitsubishi Regional Jet, and Embraer's redesigned E-Jet regional aircraft. It is offered as an option for the Irkut MS-21 and Airbus A320neo aircraft.

Brazil's Embraer agrees Mexico venture with Zodiac



Embraer to develop plane interiors with French seat maker
Mexico plant part of Embraer’s expansion beyond Brazil
June 12 (Reuters) - Brazil’s Embraer, the world’s largest regional jet maker, agreed on Tuesday to a joint venture in Mexico making cabin interiors with France’s Zodiac Aerospace , as part of an effort to expand manufacturing operations globally.

Embraer and Zodiac, which makes aircraft seating and already supplies plumbing, power and parts for Embraer’s jets, will jointly operate a facility in Mexico making interior elements of the E-170 and E-190 regional jets.

Coelum designed and built in Colombia by CIAC

ART Coelum during his presentation.
With 1.95 meters in length and 1.25 meters in span it can take off with a weight of up to 4.5 Kilograms, it is portable and the assembly of its modular system can be done in less than 5 minutes, together with its control system weighs 10 kilograms, which allows transport by Special Forces units in highly complex scenarios.




It does not require a runway since it has a Hand Lunch takeoff system and counts as the Quimbaya with an EO / IR bed, transmits data in the DataLink system and has a range of more than 60 minutes with an operating radius of 20 Kilometers operating up to 3,000 meters thanks to its electric motor.

The Coelum has already made its first flight and in the first semester of 2019 it will finish the verification and presentation flights to the different Colombian Military Forces. Currently there is an interest on the part of the Colombian Army to buy some units of the Coelum system.

El Gr Ulloa highlighted the great experience that the CIAC has acquired thanks to its work in different projects with composite materials such as the basic trainer T-90 "Calima" and the glider S-17 "Urubú" as well as the experience have developed the ARt "Iris", a project that failed to overcome the economic feasibility studies in the face of the competition of its sector but that left the experience that allowed to develop these two projects.

It would make sense, if it was binary yes/no. But it isn't, and if we did so, then we'd run into problems sorting out the optionally-crewed aircraft.

you can do it but in my opinion latin America has not many aircraft programs, even Brazil has not many programs, Colombia has a few Cessna type aircraft and and a few UAVs same is Venezuela or Mexico, so in reality it will impoverish the topic and the possible conversations we can have in this thread

The Cauca River Valley, located mainly in the Department of Valle del Cauca, has a series of advantages and potentials that are rarely gathered in such a relatively small area. In view of the fact that this region is in a privileged geostrategic position, providing a promising and successful future, the Colombian Air Force, in order to benefit from the region’s present and future advantages and potentials, has been dedicated to the creation and promotion of an Industrial Cluster devoted to the Aerospace and Defense Industry, known as the Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster (CVAC).

For the Colombian Air Force, the Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster is a strategic initiative that will have enormous and positive impact not only on the economic field, but in the quality of life of those who inhabit this area as well.

THE INITIATIVE

The Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster is both an organization and a strategic initiative. The formation and structuring of the Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster is a regional strategic initiative dedicated to the cultural, social and economic transformation of the Cauca River Valley, and is led by the Colombian Air Force along with the “Marco Fidel Suárez” Military Aviation School, through its Aerospace Technologies Research Center – CITAE and supported by the Cali Chamber of Commerce, the Department of Valle del Cauca and the Colombian Ministry of Defense.

The Colombian Air Force raised this initiative for the first time in 2006, but nothing could have been achieved without the concurrence of key factors who are able to understand the implications of such project and who are willing to face challenges. With the full support and commitment of the Valle del Cauca Department and the Cali Chamber of Commerce and with the active and decisive participation of 30 organizations, among which are private enterprises, higher education institutions, research and development centers, and various local, regional and national entities, the Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster is aiming at transforming the Cauca River Valley into a significant industrial center.

MISSION

The Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster is aiming to group, articulate, represent and promote the various public and private entities of the Cauca River Valley that have interests in the aerospace sector, as well as facilitate the economic, social and cultural development of the region, based on scientific, technological and aerospace activities.

As a regional strategic initiative, Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster’s goal is the economic, social and cultural transformation of the region through a number of initiatives and a joint line of action.

VISION

The Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster will not only provide the appropriate platform for business activities, but also a regional strategic initiative for the economic, social and cultural transformation of the region, aiming to encourage the creation of new work positions, as well as a scientific and technical development on a global scale.

LINE OF ACTION

The Cauca Valley Airspace Cluster is mainly aiming at:

  • Expanding the national aviation, aerospace and defense market internationally,
  • Strengthening the position of the participating companies nationally and internationally,
  • Creating alliances with international strategic partners of the civil aerospace market,
  • Generating the appropriate conditions (i.e. promotion, funding, infrastructure, social development technology, education, etc.), for the strengthening of the Cauca Valley Airspace Cluster,
  • Conquering a significant part of the global airline business,
  • Promoting industrial research development,
  • Providing certified products that are manufactured in the region at low cost, and as a result, ensuring regional economic development,
  • Investing in new technologies, in order to improve quality control and industrial performance.
Another result of the aerospace cluster is the establishment of the Aeroindustriales de Colombia Association, a result of the cooperation of Aerodynos de Colombia, Aeroandina, Ibis Aircraft and Caldas Aeronautica. The Association is engaged in the manufacture of ultra-light aircrafts and along with other companies that we have been identified for their significant knowledge in the field, it is able to strengthen business networks both within the country and globally.

Among the most prominent members of the Cauca Valley Aerospace Cluster are:

  • Ibis Aircraft,
  • Aeroandina,
  • Aerodynos de Colombia,
  • Caldas Aeronautica,

I'd strongly recommend to impose and maintain a clear distinction/separation between crewed aircraft and uncrewed air vehicles (i.e. drones) in this thread for clearer/easier separation of search results and technical accomplishments.
