Embraer has delivered the second EMBRAER 190 jet to the Brazilian government. Like the first of this model, which was delivered in September of this year, the aircraft is specially configured for missions by the President of the Republic, and it will also be operated by the Special Transport Group (Grupo de Transporte Especial – GTE) of the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira – FAB). The contract between Embraer and the Aeronautics Command (Comando da Aeronáutica – COMAER) for the two jets was signed in June 2008.
“It is with a great sense of satisfaction that we deliver this second EMBRAER 190 to the Brazilian government three months after the first delivery of an aircraft of the same model,” said Orlando José Ferreira Neto, Embraer Executive Vice President, Defense Market. “This is one more example of the synergy that exists between the FAB and Embraer: on the one hand, specifications very well prepared by the FAB, and on the other, an Embraer team making every effort to provide a modern airplane, which has the exactly the functionality, comfort and operational level required by the government’s missions.”
The second EMBRAER 190 jet has the same features as the first, such as a special secure communications system, seats for 54 people, including passengers and crew, and a range that reaches anywhere in South America, nonstop from Brasilia.
In order to ensure the support and appropriate availability of the two EMBRAER 190 jets, the FAB signed a five-year contract with Embraer for Embraer Support Solutions for Governments (Embraer Soluções de Suporte para Governos – ESSG). This is a logistical support package covering maintenance, materials, specialized engineering labor in the field, and administration of repairs and warranties.
