Unit History


TAME (
Transportes Aéreos Militares Equatorianos)

Role: Civil Transport.

TAME was formed on the 17.12.1962 as an initiative of the Ecuadorian Air Force in order to make available to the people, an air service to cover routes to the country's main cities, as well as to other places where due to the low demand for services, were not being served with the necessary frequency by established local airlines. The aircraft have previously worn both civil registrations and military serials, but the aircraft delivered from 1985 appear to be using civil registrations only. In 1990 TAME became an administratively and fancially independent state-owned company attached to the Ecuadorian Air Force.
