Embraer Executive Jets unveiled the Phenom 300E at the NBAA-BACE (National Business Aviation Association's Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition) held in Las Vegas, United States. The Company's new version of the best-selling executive jet brings a new interior and entertainment system as well as cabin management novelties.

Embraer Defense & Security announced that the new Embraer KC-390 military transport and aerial refueling jet completed a major milestone with the attainment of the Initial Operational Capability (IOC) demonstrated to the Brazilian Air Force (FAB). The aircraft also conducted a series of flight tests in the United States as part of its certification campaign. During this period, the Defense & Security division signed contracts for the sale of 18 A-29 Super Tucano aircraft, six of them for the United States Air Force (to be used in the A-29 program in Afghanistan), six aircraft for the Philippine Air Force and another six for an undisclosed customer.

In Services & Support, Embraer extended its Flight Hour Pool Program agreement with Russia's Saratov Airlines and with Austral Líneas Aéreas, the domestic airline of Aerolíneas Argentinas, to continue providing repairable component support for their E-Jets fleet. Another announcement was the establishment of a training center in Johannesburg, South Africa, the first facility of its kind in Africa to provide this range of training at a single location for qualified pilots, maintenance technicians, and cabin crew. December was also marked by the launch of the TechCare platform, designed to encompass a portfolio of innovative and competitive solutions, focused on improving operational efficiency, extending aircraft life and maximizing fleet potential.
