|Parent Unit:||Air Force HQ|
The unit was formed on 10.3.1954 with one DC-3 Dakota to increase the transportation capabilities for passengers, mail and cargo, while at the same time intensifying the training of military pilots. TAM made scheduled flights throughout Paraguay. Many aircraft are jointly used by the Transporte Aéreo Militar (TAM) and the Grupo de Transporte Aéreo. During the next years the TAM received about 30 C-47 Dakota aircraft. All the transport airplanes changed their serial system in 1980, from “T” to a four digit number system. Due to economic crisis in Paraguay the unit was disbanded in August 1998.
