The Fábrica Argentina de Aviones or FAdeA SA, officially Fábrica Argentina de Aviones "Brigadier San Martín" S.A., is Argentina's main aircraft manufacturer. Founded in 1927 and located in Córdoba, for most of its existence it was known as Fábrica Militar de Aviones (hence the acronym FMA), until its privatisation in the 1990s. It began by producing the Avro 504 under licence, and moved on to build the first fighter aircraft in Latin America, the the Pulqui I (1947) and the Pulqui II (1950). After building several aircraft in small numbers, the next notable product was the Pucará, a counter-insurgency/light attack aircraft. FMA was closed in 1995 and was privatized, so from then until March 2009 it belonged to LMAASA (Lockheed Martin Aircraft Argentina SA, a subsidiary of Lockheed Martin Corporation). In 2010 the Lockheed Martin concession ended and is now wholly owned by the Argentine government.
