About Embraer


TECHNOLOGY AND SAFETY

  • Technology

    The safety of embraer products is one of the pillars for generating value

    Embraer has the highest production standards, which start with our commitment to enterprise excellence. The P3E program pursues continuous improvement for Embraer’s people and processes, and is one of the pillars of our responsibility for producing a product that involves so much technology and so many safety procedures as those found in an airplane.
    Besides employee preparation, Embraer and its training partners offer all aircraft operators a comprehensive set of technical training courses. The company's responsibility is also reflected in the design, manufacture and airworthiness certifications earned by our aircraft in Brazil and abroad. Certification is a legal and mandatory procedure for civil aviation, in which Embraer must demonstrate that the product complies with safety regulations defined by the certifying authority.
    The safety of Embraer products is one of the pillars for generating value. The Company’s safety policy takes a proactive approach during the entire product life cycle, in order to ensure that Embraer’s safety standards are met and exceed the minimum standards set by aeronautic certifications.
    New products, or even modifications in previously certified designs, are only disclosed to the operators after a formal demonstration of compliance with safety requirements and the resulting approval by the civil aviation authority.
    Product safety performance is continuously monitored in conjunction with customers.
