The Boeing Company announced today that they have reached an agreement with Embraer to collaborate on the KC-390 Program. The terms under this agreement stipulates that Embraer and Boeing will share specific technical knowledge between the two in order to evaluate the market and identify areas in which they can join their sales effort for more medium-lift military transport opportunities.
President and CEO of Embraer Defesa e Segurança, Luiz Carlos Aguilar concedes that
“Boeing has the advantage with their extensive experience in military transport and air refueling aircraft but also in part due to their deep knowledge of potential markets for the KC-390, some of which were even being overlooked and not considered as a part of Embraer’s original marketing plan”
As part of a broader agreement signed in April between Boeing and Embraer, The KC-390 collaboration was previously announced as an exploratory way for the two companies to cooperate and share expertise in “commercial airplane efficiency and safety, research and technology, and sustainable aviation biofuels.” To facilitate that, Embraer and Boeing will conduct joint market assessment as well as fully analyze/integrate business collaboration models for the medium-lift military transport market. This assessment will include potential customers that had not been previously considered in the initial market prospects for the KC-390 Program.
President and CEO of Boeing Defense, Space & Security Division, Dennis Muilenburg believes that this collaboration is a perfect match made in heaven in terms of how it marries the two companies strengths such as Boeing's proven excellence in military transport with Embraer's KC-390 accomplishments in order to further advance the medium-lift aircraft all the while staying true to the values of hard work in order to provide high-quality, affordable customer solutions.
The KC-390 is the largest aircraft to be manufactured by the Brazilian aerospace industry and was signed as a development contract back in April 2009. Boeing has also had an incredibly strong and enduring partnership with Brazil for the past 80 years with the first F4B-4 fighters delivered to the Brazilian government back in 1932.
