Embraer will promote its complete portfolio of innovative products and solutions for the defense and security markets at LAAD Defence & Security 2023, the sector’s most important fair in Latin America. The event’s 13th edition will take place at Riocentro, in Rio de Janeiro, between April 11th and 14th.

The company will celebrate the recent achievement of the Final Type Certificate for the C-390 Millennium multi-mission aircraft program, reflecting its Full Operational Capability (FOC). The FOC certificate confirms that the project meets all the requirements defined by the Brazilian Air Force (FAB) and that the aircraft performs all the missions for which it was designed.

“We are pleased to return to LAAD after a four-year hiatus due to the pandemic and to celebrate this achievement for the C-390 alongside our customers, business partners, and suppliers,” said Bosco da Costa Junior, President & CEO of Embraer Defense & Security. “The C-390 has already started a successful international career with orders from Portugal and Hungary, and more recently, the selection by the Netherlands. We are sure that obtaining the FOC certificate will be another breaking point for the sales campaign’s success.”
