Chile's ENAER expands cooperation with Embraer
Thursday, 18 April 2024
Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, ENAER was an important supplier of structures for the ERJ-135/140/145 family of jets - now its work with Embraer will involve moire aircraft types.

Embraer and ENAER (National Aeronautical Company of Chile) have signed two industrial and services cooperation agreements involving the A-29 Super Tucano and the C-390 Millennium defense aircraft, as well as commercial aircraft. The cooperation will expand Embraer's network of suppliers and services in Chile and contribute to the integration of the aerospace industries in both Brazil and Chile.

The cooperation is the result of an understanding between Embraer, ENAER, and the Chilean Air Force. The Chilean company will begin manufacturing components and will be a designated maintenance center for the Chilean Air Force's fleet of 22 A-29 Super Tucano units. The agreement is linked to the expansion of the A-29 Super Tucano fleet in operation in the country. Furthermore, the cooperation aims to expand both ENAER's role as a supplier and Embraer's presence in Chile.

“These agreements represent the resumption of commercial ties between the two companies, which lasted many years with successful results. The new stage that begins today allows us to look very optimistically at the future to face, between both countries, the challenges of the aerospace industry in an increasingly dynamic world,” says Henry Cleveland, Executive Director of ENAER.

“This contract will promote reciprocal investments in the aerospace industry in Brazil and Chile. Our objective is to further deepen our relationship and expand both cooperation and mutual investments. This includes not only the A-29 Super Tucano but also other programs, such as the C-390 Millennium, for example,” adds Bosco da Costa Junior, President and CEO of Embraer Defense & Security.

With this agreement, Embraer and ENAER intend to resume a successful history of cooperation, which began in the 1990s. Throughout the 1990s and 2000s, the Chilean company was an important and recognised supplier of structures for the ERJ-135/140/145 family of jets and winner of several awards for the best suppliers in Embraer's global supplier chain.
