Embraer closed out 2010 with 246 jets (commercial and business aircraft) delivered leaving the company’s firm order backlog at the end of the year valued at $15.6 billion.
Throughout 2010, according to the manufacturer, the commercial aviation market “showed concrete signs of recovery and gradually regained its business activity. Consequently, Embraer sealed contracts for the sale of 97 new aeroplanes”.
The backlog for commercial aircraft now stands at two ERJ 145s, 10 E-170s, 40 E-175s, 157 E-190s and 41 E-195s, making a total of 250 aircraft.
