Embraer's executive jet shipments jumped seven units to 20 in Q2, while commercial deliveries were up 10 to 14.July 21, 2021, 12:03 PMEmbraer is continuing to see a rebound in deliveries, handing over 34 executive and commercial jets in the second quarter. This was double the 17 deliveries the Brazilian manufacturer reported a year ago when the pandemic had shuttered most of international travel and also exceeded 2019’s second-quarter shipment tally of 26 aircraft. Executive jet shipments jumped from 13 a year ago to 20 in the most recent quarter, propelled by a boost in Praetor deliveries from three in second-quarter 2020 (one Praetor 500 and two 600s) to eight in the same span this year (three 500s and five 600s). Phenom 300 deliveries also strengthened in the second quarter to 11, compared with seven a year ago. In all, Embraer delivered 12 light jets and eight large jets in the second quarter. For the first half of the year, executive jet deliveries increased to 33, compared with 22 a year ago. Light aircraft deliveries rose from 14 in the first six months of 2020 to 22 this year, while large jets climbed from eight to 11 year-over-year. Its commercial deliveries also picked up in the second quarter from four a year ago to 14 most recently. In the first half, commercial shipments improved from nine a year ago to 23 this year. Backlog has returned to pre-pandemic levels, reaching $15.9 billion by the end of June, Embraer reported. This is up 12 percent from the end of the first quarter and up $500 million from the $15.4 billion at the end of second-quarter 2020. Embraer marked the quarter with the delivery of the 600th Phenom 300-series business jet, which went to Fayetteville, Arkansas-based Superior Capital Holdings. It also delivered the first limited-edition Phenom 300E aircraft, part of the Porsche Duet collaboration, to a Fort Lauderdale, Florida customer. The company additionally completed its first conversion of a Legacy 450 to a Praetor 500 jet in Brazil. That brought the total 450 conversions to Praetor 500s to 20, including in Europe, North American, and Brazil. Business Aviation
