Embraer is one of the largest and most prominent aircraft manufacturers in the world.

The company is a member of the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG), a coalition of aviation industry giants, also including other prominent manufacturers such as Airbus, Boeing, and Bombardier Aerospace. Embraer's CEO, Frederico Curado, was the 2012 recipient of the Tony Jannus Award, an honor given solely to the most distinguished contributors to the commercial aviation industry.

History and Growth

Originally founded in 1969 as a government-owned corporation, Embraer was created to facilitate the Brazilian government's need for a domestic aircraft manufacturer. The company's first official product was the Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante, a general purpose turboprop aircraft intended to fulfill both civilian and military needs.

Embraer's growth as a company was highly facilitated by its ties with the Brazilian government through consistent contracts and domestic sales. Although the EMB 110 Bandeirante succeeded in being a reliable, efficiency-based aircraft with low operational costs, development was eventually halted in favor of a pursuing larger, faster twin-turboprop aircraft, the Embraer EMB Brasilia, which was Embraer's first product to be aimed primarily at the export market. This aircraft was highly successful and marked the beginning of Embraer's prominence in the international marketplace.

Although the Brazilian government still controls golden shares allowing veto power, Embraer was largley privatized in 1994 and still remains so today. Read more about Embraer's history on Wikipedia.
