The 2Q16 main highlight was the first flight of the E190-E2, the first model of the second generation of the E-Jets family of commercial jets. The flight occurred on May 23, just three months after the E190-E2 made its public debut at a rollout ceremony at the factory in late February, and before the date originally scheduled.

Also during the quarter, Embraer and Horizon Air signed a firm order for 30 E175 jets, with options for another 33 aircraft of the same model. The value of the contract is USD 2.8 billion, based on current list prices, if all the options are exercised.

Other highlights included the debut of the E190 jet in Japan with J-AIR, a subsidiary of leading carrier Japan Airlines, bringing the number of E-Jets operating across Japan to 28, and the E-Jets debut in Portugal, with TAP, under the TAP Express brand.

In business aviation, the main highlight was the deal with Across, Mexico's premium business aviation services provider, which signed a firm order for 23 business jets. The contract comprises the purchase of eight Legacy 500, eight Phenom 300 and seven Phenom 100E jets, with an estimated value of over USD 260 million at current list prices.
