Embraer delivers 25 commercial and 20 executive jets in 3Q17

During the third quarter of 2017 (3Q17), Embraer delivered 25 jets to the commercial aviation market and 20 jets to the business aviation market, of which 13 were light jets and seven were large jets.

On September 30, Embraer’s firm order backlog totaled US$18.8 billion, above the US$18.5 billion of the previous quarter.

The main highlights of this period were the sales announcements for SkyWest, which represent a cumulative order of 45 new aircraft and were included in Embraer’s backlog for 3Q17. In September, the company announced an order for 25 E-Jets worth US$1.1 billion, based on current list prices. All aircraft are scheduled to be delivered in 2018. Later, in the beginning of October, the company announced a second firm order from SkyWest for 20 additional E-Jets, with a value of US$914 million, based on current list prices.
