Embraer Commercial Aviation
Embraer’s E-Jets E2 family of aircraft, including the E190-E2 and E195-E2 are the most fuel-efficient single aisle aircraft flying today, delivering the lowest operating costs and highest yields for airlines, more comfort for passengers and space for their bags, smallest noise footprint and less impact on the environment. All flights at Farnborough will be powered by 39.06% sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) blend.
In June, the Pratt & Whitney GTF-powered E195-E2 was successfully tested on 100 percent SAF, validating that the E-Jets E2 family can fly on both engines with blends of up to 100% SAF without any compromise to safety or performance. Today, the E2 emits 25% fewer CO2 emissions compared to previous generation aircraft; this reduction can be increased to 85% with SAF.
Embraer’s Defense & Security
Embraer Defense & Security products and solutions are present in more than 60 countries and include the multi-mission C-390 Millennium military transport aircraft and the A-29 Super Tucano light attack and advanced trainer aircraft, which will be on display at FIA.
The C-390 aircraft was first delivered to the Brazilian Air Force in 2019 and has proven its capability, reliability, and outstanding performance on domestic and overseas missions, as well as its ability to quickly respond to emergency or humanitarian situations. The aircraft has already been acquired by Portugal and Hungary, and on June 16, The Netherlands Ministry of Defense announced their selection of a fleet of C-390 Millennium to succeed their current fleet of C-130 Hercules.
Regarding the A-29 Super Tucano aircraft, the worldwide fleet reached 500,000 flight hours earlier this year. With more than 260 units delivered, the aircraft has already been selected by more than 15 air forces worldwide.
