Embraer KC-390 Makes its Debut at FIDAE 2018

Flight Test Campaign Has Racked Up More Than 1,600 Flight Hours

Embraer is attending Fidae 2018 Feria Internacional del Aire y del Espacio, in Santiago, Chile, from April 3-8, where it will be showcasing its new multi-mission, medium-lift transport KC-390.

Seen as the advanced and modern option to replace legacy medium-lift aircraft, the KC-390 is designed to set new standards in its category, while presenting the lowest life-cycle cost in the market and the ability to perform multiple missions such as transport and airdrop of troops and cargo, search and rescue (SAR), medical evacuation, aerial refueling (fixed and rotary wing) and firefighting, among others.

Embraer achieved KC-390´s initial operational capability declaration (IOC) in December, 2017 and expects to receive the certification of the final operational capability (FOC) in the second half of 2018. First delivery is scheduled to happen in 2018. The flight test campaign of the KC-390 is progressing extremely well, with more than 1.600 flight hours accumulated by late March.

Also being showcased at Fidae is the A-29 Super Tucano, the best light attack and close air support aircraft in the market. The Super Tucano is a durable, versatile and powerful turboprop aircraft capable of operating from unimproved runways that was selected by 14 Air Forces around the world, including the U.S. Air Force, that has selected the aircraft for its Light Air Support program.
