Embraer and Aeroplex have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate on a project to qualify Aeroplex as an Embraer Authorised Service Center (EASC) in Hungary. The goal is to support and enable Aeroplex to provide line and intermediate maintenance to the Hungarian Defence Forces’ KC-390 Millennium aircraft.
The Hungarian government has signed a contract with Embraer for the acquisition of two C-390 Millennium multi-mission transport aircraft, in its Air-to-Air Refueling (AAR) configuration, designated KC-390. The acquisition is part of the process to strengthen the capabilities of the Hungarian Defence Forces. The first aircraft is scheduled to be delivered in 2024.
The KC-390 for the Hungarian Defence Forces will be the very first with the Intensive Care Unit in its configuration, an essential feature to perform humanitarian missions. The aircraft fully meets the requirements of the Hungarian Defense Forces, being able to perform different types of military and civilian missions including medical evacuation, cargo and troops transport, precision cargo airdrop, paratroopers operations and AAR.
