Based in São José dos Campos (Brazil), Embraer delivered a total of 14 jets in the first quarter of 2020, of which five were commercial aircraft and nine were executive jets (five light and four large). As of 31 March, the company’s firm-order backlog totalled $15.9 billion.
Historically, Embraer has fewer deliveries during the first quarter of the year; and in 2020 in particular, its commercial-aircraft deliveries in the first quarter were ‘negatively impacted’ by the conclusion of the separation of Embraer’s Commercial Aviation unit in January.
That said, during the first quarter, Embraer Executive Jets announced that the new Phenom 300E was granted its Type Certificate by ANAC (Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency), EASA (the European Union’s Aviation Safety Agency) and FAA (the USA’s Federal Aviation Administration).
This aircraft is the recently enhanced version of the Phenom 300 series, which was the most delivered business jet series in the 2010s.
Also in Q1, Emgepron (a Brazilian state-owned company linked to the Ministry of Defence through the Brazilian Navy Command), Águas Azuis (a company created by Thyssen Krupp Marine Systems), Embraer Defense & Security and Atech signed a contract to build four Tamandaré-class ships, with deliveries scheduled between 2025 and 2028.
