The CRUZEX exercise (Exercício Cruzeiro do Sul) in Brazil is one of the largest exercises held in South America. The exercise at Natal normally attracts various South American countries as participants. The next edition is scheduled to run from 18 to 30 November 2018. 4Aviation intends to visit Brazil again to witness the exercise. The report of an earlier tour to the exercise can be found here.
The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.
We will depart on Sunday 25 November 2018 and return to the Netherlands on Saturday 1 December 2018.
The exercise will take place between 18 and 30 November and we can look forward to participating aircraft from Brazil, Canada, Chile, Colombia, France, Peru, Uruguay and the USA. There will not be an open day.
With our tour we have 5 full days (Monday to Friday) to experience the exercise. On one day we will also go to Recife if there are enough tankers there that we can admire.
For now we can promise a visit from the outside. You can judge what this looks like in the report of our previous visit here.
This time also there will be quite extensive options to capture aircraft while being on base. Certain ‘spotting points’ have been created for this. To be able to visit these you need to be accredited. The accreditation is given on an individual basis. We can therefore not promise anything on this. As soon as we receive the details for the procedure we will send these to all that have booked the tour.
If you want to join our tour you have to decide at first knowing that you will get ‘photos in the approach and from the civil terminal’.
