Embraer successfully performs first flight of the series production KC-390 multi-mission airlift

Embraer achieved another important milestone today with the completion of the maiden flight of the first series production multi-mission medium airlift KC-390. As agreed with the Brazilian Air Force, the aircraft will now join the flight test campaign, in which more than 1,900 flight hours have already been logged.

Civil certification of the basic aircraft will be granted by Brazilian aviation authority ANAC (Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil) and is expected to be achieved very soon.

"Today we celebrate another important milestone into the production of the KC-390", said Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security. "This aircraft combines outstanding flexibility with superior performance and productivity".
