Embraer recently reported it delivered 13 executive jets in 2020’s second quarter, including nine light and four large models. The Brazil-based manufacturer delivered 17 jets overall during the quarter, the other four being commercial jets. Compared to the same quarter in previous years, Embraer delivered fewer business and commercial jets in 2020, but says that’s “largely due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is affecting the world.” At June’s end, Embraer’s firm order backlog totaled $15.4 billion.
