Boeing, Brazilian Firm To Evaluate Transport Aircraft Markets; Luiz Carlos Aguiar Comments - top government contractors - best government contracting eventBoeing has signed an agreement with a Brazilian aerospace firm to collaborate, share technical knowledge and evaluate markets for a military transport aircraft program.

Boeing said this work is part of a larger agreement signed in April with Embraer to cooperate in airplane research and technology, including biofuels.

The Brazilian Air Force signed a development contract with Embraer in April for the KC-390.

Boeing has knowledge of potential markets for the KC-390 that Embraer did not consider in its original marketing plan, said Embraer CEO Luiz Carlos Aguiar.

The companies will conduct a joint market assessment for the medium-lift military transport market and analyze business collaboration models.

Founded in 1969, Sao Paolo-based Embraer designs, develops, manufactures and sells aircraft and systems for the aviation, defense and security segments.

The company also has offices China, France, Portugal, Singapore and the U.S.
