Embraer rolled out the first of two KC-390 prototype transport aircraft at its production facility, north of Sao Paulo, on 21 October.
The ceremony was attended by officials from 32 countries. Maiden flight of KC-390 is scheduled for later this year.
To date, Embraer has secured a production contract for 28 KC-390 aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force (Forca Aerea Brasileira - FAB). The two prototypes will be refurbished and delivered to the FAB once flight trials are complete to give Brazil a fleet of 30 aircraft. janes
