Embraer in Russia

Brazilian jetmaker Embraer said Wednesday that it struck a cooperation agreement
with a Russian research institute to work on the development of bigger jet
models capable of carrying more than 100 passengers.

The company said in a statement the agreement allowed it to use the research
facilities of the Central Aerohydrodynamics Institute to conduct aerodynamic and
other tests on ERJ-170 and ERJ-190 regional jetliner series, currently in

Embraer, which is the world`s fourth-largest civil aircraft manufacturer, said
it started work at TsAGI`s wind-tunnels and laboratories in June this year and
the agreement now enhances and formalizes the existing cooperation.

An Embraer spokeswoman would not provide further details on its deal with the
institute and declined to say whether any payments were involved.

Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer today announced the signing of a co-operation agreement with the Russian TsAGI (Tsentralny Aerogidrodynamichesky Institute - Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute).

Embraer has been making use of that institute's facilities since last June, employing TsAGI's wind tunnel to fine-tune the ERJ 170/190 regional jetliner family. The Brazilian aircraft manufacturer has also made extensive use of that research centre's computer-based aerodynamic and aeroelastic laboratories.

According to Satoshi Yokota, Embraer's Industrial Vice-President, "This agreement covers the entire scope of all the work we intend to perform alongside TsAGI to use their enormous technologic capabilities fully."

Airbus, Boeing, Dassault, Lockheed Martin, BAE SYSTEMS and EADS are some of the many companies that have standing co-operation agreements with the TsAGI. The institute possesses more than 60 subsonic, transonic and supersonic wind tunnels, as well as slightly more than 200 laboratories that execute a wide array of research and test activities. Staffed with more than 5,500 employees, the majority of whom are engineers and scientists, the TsAGI can rely on some 600 aerospace engineers and scientists that hold a Ph.D., in their respective fields.

Development work on the ERJ 170 is on schedule and the first flight should occur during the second half of 2001. That event will be followed a flight test and certification trials with forecasting delivery of the first production airframe at the end of 2002.

Assembly of the first prototype should occur in January 2001, while two months later, work on the ERJ 170/190 final assembly hangar will have been concluded.
