Embraer will be present at the Tri-Service Asian Defence & Security Exhibition, Conference and Networking Event, in Bangkok, Thailand, to be held between August 29 and September 1. Embraer’s Defence & Security products and solutions, which are present in more than 60 countries, include the multi-mission transport aircraft C-390 Millennium and the A-29 Super Tucano light attack and training aircraft, in addition to broader solutions for air, land, sea, space and cyber domains.
The C-390 Millennium and its air-to-air refuelling configuration, the KC-390, are the new generation of multi-role military transport aircraft already delivering unrivalled mobility and cargo capacity, rapid re-configuration, high availability, improved comfort, and flight safety, as well as optimal management of reduced operational costs through its life cycle—all in a single platform.
Since its first delivery to the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) in 2019, the KC-390 Millennium has proven its capability, reliability and performance. The aircraft was extensively used in operations to transport equipment and medical supplies, ranging from liquid oxygen to vehicles across Brazil at the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The FAB’s current fleet of KC-390s stands at five units, all of which are fully operational. Together, the fleet has exceeded 5,000 flight hours in operation with a mission completion rate of 97%, demonstrating outstanding availability and productivity in its category.
