Foundation

The creation of a Brazilian aircraft manufacurer was planned during the 1940s by the Brazilian Government as part of a technical development formed by the General Command for Aerospace Technology (CTA), the Aeronautics Technological Institute (ITA) and Embraer. // Events and trends World War II was a truly global conflict with many facets: immense human suffering, fierce indoctrination, and the use of new, extremely devastating weapons such as the atomic bomb. ... The Brazilian General Command for Aerospace Technology (Comando-Geral de Tecnologia Aerospacial - CTA) is the national military research center for aviation and space flight of the Federative Republic of Brazil and subordinated to the Brazilian Air Force. ... The Aeronautics Technological Institute (Instituto Tecnólogico de Aeronautica - ITA) is a federal public academic institution located in São José dos Campos, Brazil. ...


The first step to the creation of a Brazilian aircraft industry was the creation of IPD - Instituto de Pesquisas e Desenvolvimento (Research and Development Institute, current IAE - Instituto de Aeronáutica e Espaço - Aeronautics and Space Institute), which was born inside CTA, on January 1, 1954. In the following years, the IPD developed many aircraft projects, such as the Beija-Flor helicopter. Even without commercial expression, these projects were important to the advance of brazilian aeronautics development. January 1 is the first day of the calendar year in both the Julian and Gregorian calendars. ... 1954 (MCMLIV) was a common year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The major change occurred on March 29, 1965, when IPD received a proposal of a turboprop biplane from the french engineer Max Holste. A group of engineers led by Ozires Silva would turn this proposal into a larger scale project, the IPD-6504, or Bandeirante, which flew for the first ime on October 26, 1968. IPD wanted the 6504 to move into serial production, but faced a lack of interest from private companies. It was clear that the creation of a government-owned company was necessary.

Finally, on July 29, 1969, Embraer was created by the Ministry of Aeronautics. The IPD-6504 was renamed EMB 100 Bandeirante. By this time, the company had about 500 employees, including many former engineers from both CTA and ITA, and planned to build two Bandeirante aircraft a month. Ozires Silva became the president of the new company.

Growth and expansion

The three first series version Bandeirante, named EMB 110, were delivered in February, 1973 to the Brazilian Air Force. In the same month, Transbrasil bought the first commercial Bandeirante, which made its debut on April 16, 1973. Exports began in 1975, and the Bandeirante proved to be a huge success in the international aviation market, upstaging other aircraft of its category in performance. About 500 Bandeirante were sold, for 36 countries. February is the second month of the year in the Gregorian Calendar. ... 1973 (MCMLXXIII) was a common year starting on Monday. ...

Brazil's Ministry of Aeronautics made large efforts to contribute to the growth of Embraer. Two existing projects, a glider, the Urupema and an agricultural aircraft, the Ipanema, were transferred to the new manufacturer. A request for assembly in series of 112 Aermacchi MB-326 trainer aircraft (to be later designated EMB326GB Xavante), was also made. The Ipanema (current version EMB 202A) is producted until nowadays, with more than 1,000 units sold. The Xavante was producted for 11 years, with 186 units sold. Gliders are heavier-than-air aircraft primarily intended for unpowered flight. ... The Antonov An-2 was the first purpose-built agricultural arcraft to be mass-produced. ...

In August, 1974, Embraer established a cooperation with Piper Aircraft to assemble many general aviation products by license, including the models PA-28 Cherokee, PA-34 Seneca, and PA-31 Navajo. These aircraft respectively received the designations of EMB 712 Tupi, EMB 810D Seneca and EMB 820C Navajo.

On October 22, 1975, the company's first pressurized aircraft, the EMB 121 Xingu, made its inaugural flight. The aircraft was smaller than the Bandeirante, thus it didn't become a sucessor; a few dozens Xingu were built, with most being delivered to the French Air Force in1981. By request of the Ministry of Aeronautics, Embraer developed its first combat aircraft, the EMB 312 Tucano, which made its inaugural flight on December 16, 1980. This airplane became the most successful turboprop military trainer ever built, with more than 650 units sold around the world.

The development of a regional airliner able to replace the Bandeirante started in the end of the 1970s. This project took the form of an turboprop able to carry 30-40 passengers, the EMB 120 Brasilia, which was certified in May, 1985. Unlike the Bandeirante, the Brasilia begun its career as an exportation product, entering service with the american Atlantic Southeast Airlines (ASA). This was the result of the trust that Embraer gained in the international aviation market with the Bandeirante. The production of Brasilia oficially ended on 2002, with 350 units sold; however, the aircraft may still be produced on demand.

In July, 1981, Embraer joined the AMX Program, which purpose was to establish a partnership to develop a subsonic fighter. Together with Alenia Aeronautica and Aermacchi, Embraer worked on the development of the new AMX-T fighter, which was later used to replace old military aircraft on Italia and Brazil.

1990 Crisis and Recovery

By the end of the 1980s, government investments on the aerospace industry were largely reduced, due to the Constitution of 1988, which extinguished many forms of support to the industry, and due to the lack of interest in the defense area caused by the end of the Cold War. Combined with the failure of the CBA 123 Vector project, and the crisis in the aviation segment caused by the oil price increase of 1990, made Embraer slid into a deep financial crisis. Massive cuts of expenses were made until 1994, and from the 12,600 employees the company had on 1990, only 3,200 remained. With all this happening, engineers of Embraer were focusing in a new project - a regional jet for 45 passengers, the ERJ 145.

On December 7, 1994, Embraer was privatized, and Maurício Botelho, former executive director of Grupo Bozzano, was named the new president. Botelho's skills as vendor and businessman greatly contributed to the recovery of the company. Partnerships with other companies such as Parker Hannifin, Allison Engine Company, and Honeywell ensured enough investments to the development of the ERJ 145. The outstanding sales of the new regional jet allowed Embraer to finally recover and regain its position as one of the world's most important aircraft manufacturers.
