Embraer has announced it has named its multi-mission medium aircraft the Embraer C-390 Millennium, the company said.
In 2009, the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) contracted Embraer to design, develop and manufacture the aircraft as a replacement for its aging C-130 fleet. Deliveries to FAB started last September.
The C-390 Millennium is a tactical transport jet aircraft designed to set new standards in its category, while presenting the lowest life-cycle cost in the medium airlift market.
Embraer is an aerospace company headquartered in Brazil that designs, develops, manufactures and markets aircraft and systems, providing Services & Support to customers after-sales.
