Embraer Delivers 50 Business Jets in Q4 2022

The Brazilian manufacturer’s Executive Jets division made 102 total deliveries for the year.

The investments made by Embraer into innovation and sustainability have drawn attention—but the proof of true success lies in the numbers. The Brazilian manufacturer released its delivery report for 2022 on Thursday, and the news is very good.

Embraer delivered 50 business jets in Q4 2022, while the OEM’s Executive Jets division made 102 total deliveries for the year. That improves upon the division’s 2021 totals, which were 39 in Q4 2021 and 93 for the 2021 calendar year. 

On the whole, the company shipped out 30 jets from its commercial aviation side of the house in the fourth quarter, and 57 units for the year, for a total of 159 deliveries overall. The figures were released in advance of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) press conference on 2022 shipments scheduled for February 22.

Embraer’s Phenom 300 series—popular with fleet operators—led the business jet shipments at 31 for the last quarter and 59 for the year, followed by the Praetor 600, with 11 and 21 units delivered, respectively. The manufacturer also shipped 7 Phenom 100s and 15 Praetor 500s.

Improvement Over 2021

The totals reflect an increase of 12.7 percent, which Embraer credited to both sales “momentum” in the business aviation sector as well as milestones such as “the certification of the E190-E2 in China, as well as the certification of the E-Jets E2 (E195-E2 and E190-E2) in Canada.” 

Embraer also reported a significant backlog in its order book, with $17.5 billion registered, including several key commitments:

  • A $1.17 billion firm order for 15 new E195-E2 aircraft from “an undisclosed customer”
  • An order for 5 E195-E2 from Binter for $389.4 million “at list price”
