With days to go before the Farnborough Air Show gets underway in Farnborough, an English town, about 60 km south-west of London, that is key hub of aerospace industry, a number of aerospace companies have announced their participation in the key defence and aviation event.

Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer says it will arrive with a strong presence at the Farnborough International Airshow, the most significant aviation and aerospace event of the year that is set to take place from July 22-26. 

In a press statement, Embraer says that at the event, it will debut the brand-new E-Freighter, the E190F, marking its first public appearance. The company says that it is currently experiencing very positive momentum across all businesses as it begins celebrating its 55th anniversary.

According to the statement, Embraer’s lineup at the show highlights its leading portfolio of aircraft for commercial aviation and defence, which includes the E195-E2, the world’s most efficient and quietest narrowbody, the C-390 Millennium multi-mission military tactical transport and the A-29 Super Tucano multi-role aircraft, the gold standard for a broad range of missions such as light attack, aerial surveillance and interception and counterinsurgency. 

Embraer says that the C-390 Millennium and the E195-E2 will also take part in the flight display.

The E190F, which performed its maiden flight earlier this year, is a passenger jet converted to a freighter (E-Freighter). The E-Jets freighters, E190F and E195F, were launched in 2022 to meet the changing demands of e-commerce and modern trade, which require fast deliveries and decentralised operations.
