Follows Planes Already Delivered To Royal Army, Navy
While the market for Embraer's earliest turbofan-powered
regional jet has largely waned in North America, the Brazilian
planemaker continues to sell the plane in other lands. Embraer
recently signed a contract with the Royal Thai Army for a second
ERJ 135 jet.
This third airplane for the Government of Thailand will be used
to carry civilian and military officials, and the delivery is
scheduled for 2009.
At the end of 2008, Embraer delivered one ERJ 135 to the Royal
Thai Army and another to the Royal Thai Navy. The ERJs will be used
in Thailand to transport government officials and to handle Medical
Evacuation (MEDEVAC) missions by the Royal Thai Navy.
The deal regarding the first two aircraft was announced in
November 2007, and also includes a significant logistics package,
reflecting the expansion of Embraer in the Defense and Government
segment in the Asia Pacific region.
Thailand is the first military operator in Southeast Asia to use
the ERJ 135 aircraft both for transporting officials and for
carrying out MEDEVAC missions. The airplane for the Royal Thai Navy
is based at the U-Tapao Air Base, and the airplane for the Royal
Thai Army, in Bangkok.
