Embraer Ends 2002 with 131 Deliveries
Last year Embraer delivered 121 regional jets and 10 Legacy business jets (including two for military service). These figures were slightly lower than projected, the Brazilian manufacturer reported, because of the postponement of the deliveries of three business jets and delayed delivery of two regional jets. Despite the slow economy, Embraer forecasts it will deliver 148 aircraft this year and 155 next year. Deliveries of Embraer 170 regional jets are scheduled to start this year and Model 175 RJs will begin in 2004.
