Embraer Defense & Security selects Esterline for KC-390 program

Embraer Defense and Security has chosen Esterline Control Systems, from the United States, to supply the autothrottle system for the KC-390 military transport jet.

"Esterline has the most modern control devices, with flexibility to adapt to the specific needs of each application, thus ensuring the efficiency, comfort, and precision of our product," said Eduardo Bonini Santos Pinto, Sr. Vice President Operations & COO, Embraer Defense and Security. "This totally integrated solution provides an optimized combination of functionalities, design, and human interface."

The autothrottle system consists of two throttles and integrated controls for actuating other systems. It transmits to the Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC) the thrust demands from the flight crew or from the automatic systems of the aircraft.

"This award means a great deal to Esterline. We are committed to supporting the Brazilian aviation industry, and greatly value our strong relationship with Embraer," said Brad Lawrence, Esterline's Chief Executive Officer.
