Brazilian manufacturer Embraer released mixed first-quarter delivery numbers last month. The company delivered 25 aircraft, of which five were business jets.
All five were Legacy 600s, including the 100th copy of the jet. The company said it is still on pace to deliver between 165 and 170 aircraft this year. This announcement comes on the heels of mixed financial figures for last year, announced in late March. Total net sales were $3.807 billion last year, compared with $3.830 billion the year before. The order backlog was up, however, to a company record of $14.8 billion.
