COMMERCIAL AVIATION In 2Q22, Embraer delivered 11 commercial jets, as shown below:

Embraer delivered 8 Embraer 175 to SkyWest and 3 Embraer 195-E2 to Aircastle and ICBC. In the 2Q22, NAC was announced as the E-Jets Freighter launch lessor, after signing an LOI of up to 10 P2F conversions and additional undisclosed customer signed a firm order of up to 10 P2F conversions. Embraer and Pratt & Whitney successfully tested a GTF-powered E195-E2 aircraft on 100% SAF, the first step in the certification process to maximize emission reduction with the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuels. Unit backlog and cumulative deliveries for Commercial Aviation at the end of 2Q22 were as follows:

EXECUTIVE AVIATION Executive Aviation delivered 21 aircraft (12 light and 9 mid-size jets) in the second quarter 2022. Deliveries were higher than 2Q21 and sales continued strong in the quarter with sales orders exceeding prior year levels. The book-to-bill ratio remains above 2.5 to 1, the highest in the industry.

Growth in the light and mid-sized business jet segments continues. Embraer Executive Aviation is well positioned to capitalize on this growth, with strong product performance and increased customer demand.


As of 2Q22, there are four units of C-390 Millennium in the production line destined to the Brazilian Air Force (FAB), two units to the Portuguese Air Force and one to the Hungarian Defense Forces. With regards to ongoing sales campaigns, Embraer was honored by the Netherlands Ministry of Defense’s (MoD) decision of selecting the C-390 Millennium as a sole source in its project “Replacement Capacity Tactical Airlift”.

In our cybersecurity business, Tempest continues to show strong growth, with more than twice revenue when compared 2Q22 vs 2Q21 and representing a year-to-date growth of more than 60% compared to the first half of 2021.


Growth of Services and Support is based on the expansion of the sale of materials (parts and support to special programs). This is due to higher aircraft fleet usage of the Commercial and Executive aviation, because of the recovery from the adverse impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The main drivers for the Commercial Aviation services were in Pool Program and components. Highlights are shed on a new long-term and significant agreement extension signed with Intel for the ERJ fleet. Porter has also made an addition to its E2 fleet in the pool program, now overseeing new components. New long-term agreements also included Eswatini National Airways and Marathon pool agreement.

For Executive Jets Services, sales results continue ahead of target with new contracts signed in the first six months of the year. For the Defense market, new temporary support contracts were celebrated with the Brazilian Federal Police for two E175 and with SATENA, bringing new revenue to Embraer Services & Support. Also in the term, the Services & Support Training team assisted the first and successful KC-390 operation for cargo airdrop of supplies at the Brazilian Research Base at Antarctica.
