Servicio Aeronaval

of the Paraguayan Navy

History

The Servicio Aeronaval (SAN) was created in 1966 with two JRF-5 and one JRF-6. The idea was born to create a sort of an aerial transport service for passengers, mail and small cargo, similar to that of the Transporte Aéreo Militar (TAM). The Navy had the need to have fast and direct communications and transportation to its installations located in far away corners of the country while at the same time they had to keep the ongoing training for the naval pilots and also to be able to train new pilots. During 1968 the Grumman aircraft were replaced with some Cessna aircraft. The service was disbanded in 1981.
