Embraer Defense & Security and FAdeA sign partnership contract for KC-390 program

Embraer Defense and Security and the Argentine company FAdeA signed a partnership contract, today, for the KC-390 program. The announcement was made during a press conference held at LAAD Defense and Security 2011 (www.laadexpo.com), taking place in Rio de Janeiro. The agreement states that FAdeA will manufacture the spoilers (plates on the top surface of a wing for controlling wing lift), doors for the nose landing gear, ramp door, flap fairings, tail cone, and electronic cabinet.

"FAdeA's participation in the KC-390 program strengthens the cooperation between the defense technological and industrial bases of both countries, strictly in line with Brazil's National Defense Strategy (Estratégia Nacional de Defesa – END)," said Luiz Carlos Aguiar, President of Embraer Defense and Security.

This agreement arises from the Declaration of Intent signed by the Brazilian and Argentine Ministries of Defense in October 2010, whose scope reinforces the commitment of the Argentine government to acquire six KC-390 aircraft. The development program of the aircraft is moving ahead as planned. Production of the first prototype should begin in 2013 and the first flight take place in 2014.

"This contract brings the aeronautical industries of both countries together and opens excellent possibilities for our recently recuperated company and for boosting trade relations between the two largest countries in the region," said Jaime Saiegh, President of FAdeA.
