Embraer will participate in the second edition of the National Civil Aviation Fair, July 24 to 26, at Santos Dumont Airport, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The event marks the first exhibition of the traveling display created by Embraer to tell the history of Brazilian aviation and celebrate the Company’s 40th anniversary.
“We are very proud to participate in the National Civil Aviation Fair during the year when Embraer celebrates four decades of existence,” said Emilio Matsuo, Embraer Executive Vice President, Technology. “The worldwide acceptance of our products witnesses to the technical capacity of Brazil’s aeronautics industry to conceive, develop, produce, and support efficient and competitive aircraft.”
Organized by Sator Eventos, with the institutional support of Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil – ANAC) and the III Regional Air Command (Comando Aéreo Regional – Comar), the National Civil Aviation Fair (FeiradeAviacaoCivil.com.br) is a consciously planned event held according to concepts of sustainability and socioenvironmental criteria. In this context, Embraer will show the Ipanema, which is the first assembly-line airplane in the world that is certified to operate on ethanol. This fuel is more economical than aviation gasoline, reduces operating and maintenance costs, and has less impact on the environment.
The Ipanema represents more than 70% of the Nation’s agricultural aircraft, of which over one thousand have been produced and delivered. Besides its use in agribusiness, especially for crop dusting, the Ipanema can also be used for firefighting, towing gliders, cloud seeding, stocking rivers, and combating insects and larvae.
Besides the Ipanema, Embraer will also display the entry level Phenom 100 executive jet. The airplane has a capacity for up to eight people, with seven interior options designed in a partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, and has been operating in Brazil since June 2009. Its range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, allows nonstop flights from São Paulo to Recife, Salvador, Brasília, Montevideo (Uruguay), Buenos Aires (Argentina), or Asuncion (Paraguay). The jet was certified in December 2008 and was confirmed to be the fastest in its category, and the biggest baggage area. Its advanced cockpit and rear private lavatory are some of the competitive differences of the Phenom 100.
