Embraer to Showcase KC-390 at Paris Airshow 2019

Embraer has confirmed that its multi-mission airlift KC-390, which will soon be delivered to the Brazilian Air Force, will be in the static area of the Paris Airshow from 17 to 23 June 2019.

The KC-390 will also perform flight demonstrations on the first two days of the show.

In agreement with the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), the airplane will return to Brazil right after the airshow so that it can begin the acceptance and delivery process.

“The assembly of the first aircraft to be delivered to the FAB marks a major change in Embraer's dynamics in this market,” said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security. “The KC-390 is a multi-mission aircraft that has attracted great interest internationally and the Paris Airshow is the perfect occasion to showcase the aircraft in the configuration that will be operated by the FAB, proving its superior flexibility, performance and productivity.”

The KC-390 program has already reached important milestones, such as Brazil's Civil Aviation Agency's (ANAC) Type Certificate and the production of the first series aircraft that performed its first flight in October 2018. To date, the flight test campaign has surpassed 2,200 flight hours.

“The expectation for its entry into service is huge, considering the aircraft is a milestone in military aviation, where its innovativeness will bring improvements in the execution of multiple missions, contributing greatly to the fulfillment of FAB’s mission to control, defend and integrate our nation,” said Lieutenant-Brigadier Antonio Carlos Moretti Bermudez, Brazilian Air Force Commander.
