With his company in its latest report forecasting just one market, China, will need 1,070 regional jets with 70 – 130 seats over the next 20 years, Embraer CEO John Slattery will have an optimistic message when he addresses the Aviation Club on 14 September.
Tickets are still available for the lunch event, which will be at the Institute of Directors in London, when Slattery is expected to speak about the challenges of increasing demand and life competing with the likes of Boeing and Airbus.
Embraer is the third largest manufacturer after the big two and currently accounts for 61% of global deliveries in the 70 – 130 seat jet segment, followed by Bombardier of Canada and Russia's Sukhoi, respectively taking 31% and 4% of the market.
The company has been in the news as the Johannesburg-based carrier SA Airlink firms up its plans to operate the first commercial air service to St Helena in the South Atlantic using an Embraer E190-100 (BTN 31 July).
Embraer has also delivered the first of five of its Phenom 100 business jets on order from Affinity Flight Training Services for the UK´s Military Flying Training System (MFTS) programme (BTN 7 August).
