Embraer conducted a ceremonial rollout of the prototype KC-390 airlifter at Gaviao Peixoto in Brazil on October 21. The company said that more than 30 countries were represented at the event, and that guests included Brazilian defense minister Celso Amorim and air force commander Bg. Gen. Juniti Saito. A first flight is planned by year-end, with deliveries starting two years later. A second prototype is also being built.
â€œThe KC-390 will be the backbone of the air forceâ€™s air transportation network. It will be able to operate in both the Amazon and Antactica. The jet engines give the aircraft enormous agility in fulfilling all of its missions, faster and better,â€
