Created on August 19, 1969, Embraer - Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica, was a mixed capital company under government control. With the support of the Brazilian Government, the Company would transform science and technology into engineering and industrial capability. In addition to starting the production of the Bandeirante, Embraer was commissioned by the Brazilian Government to manufacture the EMB 326 Xavante, an advanced trainer and ground attack jet, under license of Italian company Aermacchi. Other developments that marked the beginning of Embraer’s activities were the EMB 400 Urupema high-performance glider and the EMB 200 Ipanema agricultural airplane.
By the end of the 70’s, the development of new products, such as the EMB 312 Tucano and the EMB 120 Brasilia, followed by the AMX program in cooperation with the companies Aeritalia (now Alenia) and Aermacchi, allowed Embraer to reach a new technological and industrial level.
The entry into service of the new EMBRAER 170/190 family of commercial aviation in 2004, the confirmation of Embraer’s definitive presence in the executive aviation market with the launch of new products. Embraer is one of Brazil's largest exporters, working through three business units: Commercial Aviation, Executive Aviation, and Defense & Security.
