The new Embraer high school, Colégio Embraer Casimiro Montenegro Filho, in the town of Botucatu, is scheduled to open next month with its first class of 200 students. The current school in São Jose dos Campos has been in operation since 2001.

Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer has a corporate culture that emphasizes giving back, and some 1,600 graduates of its Colégio Embraer Juarez Wanderley, in São Jose dos Campos, are evidence that the industry–and the company–benefit from the effort. With that in mind, the company is opening its second school, in Botucatu.

According to Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer, certification of its Phenom 100 very light jet is expected next month, “hopefully” in time for a formal ceremony at the NBAA Convention, to be held October 6 to 8 in Orlando, Fla. What little work that remains includes paperwork validating the software that controls the Eaton flap actuators and certification of seats from new suppliers.
