Embraer delivers 51 jets in Q3 2015.


During the third quarter of 2015, Embraer (NYSE: ERJ; BM&FBOVESPA: EMBR3) said it delivered 21 jets to the commercial aviation market and 30 to the business aviation market, for a total of 51 aircraft.

The number is 50 percent higher than in the same period last year, when 34 aircraft were delivered, 19 commercial and 15 executive jets.

On September 30, 2015, the firm order backlog totaled USD 22.1 billion. The largest order announced during this period came from SkyWest, Inc. for 18 E175 jets, with an estimated value of USD 800 million, based on the current list price. The aircraft will be operated by SkyWest Airlines, under an amendment to the existing Capacity Purchase Agreement with United Airlines.

In the third quarter of 2015, Embraer delivered the first Legacy 500 midsize jet to a customer in Mexico. The aircraft will be operated by Transpais Aereo, a subsidiary of the Lomex Group Aeronautics Division.

Another new customer of the Legacy 500 announced during the quarter was Dallas-based Flexjet LLC, a leading provider of fractional jet ownership services. Flexjet's fractional program already features the Embraer Phenom 300 light jet.
