Francisco Gomes Neto, President & CEO of Embraer, recently highlighted the company’s eagerness to showcase the exceptional capabilities of the C-390 Millennium aircraft in the challenging conditions of India’s high-altitude regions. In a recent media interview, Neto expressed Embraer’s readiness to demonstrate the ruggedness and efficiency of the C-390 Millennium on short or unpaved runways at significant altitudes, at the request of the Indian Air Force (IAF).

The C-390 Millennium, a state-of-the-art transport aircraft, has achieved a significant milestone by attaining Full Operational Capability (FOC) with the Brazilian Air Force in April 2023. Neto emphasized the aircraft’s remarkable versatility, which spans a wide range of operations including air-to-air refuelling, medical evacuation, troop and cargo transport, firefighting, and more.

One of the aircraft’s notable strengths is its modern design and efficient mission completion rate, positioning it as a valuable asset for swift response operations. With India’s expansive borders and diverse geographical challenges, the C-390 Millennium has the potential to play a crucial role in addressing various issues swiftly and effectively.

The Indian Air Force is currently exploring options for the replacement of its ageing Russian An-32 transport aircraft and has received competitive offers from leading aerospace manufacturers. Embraer’s C-390 Millennium is among the aircraft being considered for this purpose, with Airbus’ A400M and Lockheed Martin’s C-130J Super Hercules also in the running.
