SeoulEmbraer said it delivered a total of 15 jets in the first quarter of 2023, of which seven were commercial aircraft and eight were executive jets (six light and two large). This total volume represents 7 percent growth compared to the same period of the previous year. As of March 31, the firm order backlog totalled US$17.4 billion.

This first quarter was marked by the confirmation that for the 11th consecutive year, Embraer’s Phenom 300 series remains the best-selling light jet in the world, according to the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA). Embraer delivered 59 Phenom 300 series light jets in 2022 to achieve this milestone, and to date, the series has accrued more than 700 deliveries. The Phenom 300MED, a unique Medevac solution, received Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) this quarter as well.

In the Services & Support segment, Embraer announced the signing of a services contract with the Philippine Air Force (PAF) to support the country’s A-29 Super Tucano fleet. The deal will support more than 200 A-29 components. The company also revealed three new customers for the use of Beacon, the maintenance coordination digital platform that connects resources and professionals for a faster return-to-service.

Air New Zealand and Embraer signed a collaboration agreement for next-generation sustainable aircraft programs, expanding the membership of Embraer’s Energy Advisory Group. Embraer Defense & Security held an exhibition of its portfolio of products and innovative solutions in the European, Asian and Middle East markets, prior to the recent announcements made at LAAD, the main defence and security fair in Latin America.

Embraer’s Ipanema 203 aircraft maintains strong sales performance
Embraer’s agricultural aviation division sold 33 Ipanema 203 model aircraft in the first quarter of 2023, maintaining strong commercial activity in this business segment. This volume of transactions is 38 percent higher than in the same period last year. The Brazilian manufacturer’s business unit expects to end the year with a sales volume similar to or better than 2022, when 66 aircraft were sold. With the positive performance at the beginning of the year and the backlog accumulated over the last 12 months, new orders are now included in next year’s production planning and deliveries.

By the end of 2023, the expectation is to produce and deliver 65 units compared to 55 and 42 aircraft delivered in 2022 and 2021, respectively. Due to the sector’s seasonality, the highest volume of deliveries occurs in the second half. “We have experienced three consecutive years of growth in the volume of aircraft delivered, which highlights the very high confidence that our customers and operators have in the Ipanema 203. By combining high technology and tradition, the Ipanema 203 remains a benchmark of high productivity and low operating costs,” says Sany Onofre, Embraer’s Ipanema Program Manager.
