Embraer achieved another important milestone with the completion of the maiden flight of the first series production multi-mission medium airlift KC-390. As agreed with the Brazilian Air Force, the aircraft will now join the flight test campaign, in which more than 1,900 flight hours have already been logged. Civil certification of the basic aircraft will be granted by Brazilian aviation authority ANAC (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil) and is expected to be achieved very soon.

Embraer's KC-390 tactical transport aircraft can perform a variety of missions such as cargo and troop transport, troop and cargo air delivery, aerial refueling, search and rescue, and forest fire fighting.
