Brazilian airframer Embraer delivered 25 aircraft in the first quarter—14 commercial airliners and 11 executive jets. These figures represent a 24.2 percent drop compared with the 33 aircraft (18 commercial jets and 15 executive jets) delivered in the same period last year. First-quarter 2017 deliveries were also down 25 percent from the 44 aircraft Embraer delivered in the first three months of 2016.

The 11 executive jets shipped in the most recent quarter consisted of eight light jets (three Phenom 100s and five Phenom 300s) and three “large jets” (two Legacy 450s and one Legacy 500). In the first three months of last year, the airframer delivered 11 light jets (three Phenom 100s and eight Phenom 300s) and four large jets (one Legacy 450, one Legacy 500, one Legacy 650, one Lineage 1000). The 14 commercial airliners delivered in the quarter included 11 E175s and three E195s.

Embraer will release its firm order backlog during its first-quarter 2018 earnings results on April 27.
