The third quarter was marked by important sales to the airline market, which were announced in July at the 47th Farnborough International Airshow (FIA), in England. On that occasion, Embraer reported the sale of 37 new E-Jets to two companies that already operate this family of jets: Brazil's TRIP ordered two EMBRAER 190s and England's Flybe, 35 EMBRAER 175s. Furthermore, Argentina's Austral received its first EMBRAER 190s in September, and became the most recent airline to join the list of Embraer jet operators.

For the executive jets market, Embraer delivered 24 jets in 3Q10, 16 Phenom 100s and six Phenom 300s, plus two Lineage 1000 jets – one to Mexico and another to the United Arab Emirates. Investments in customer support continue to be made, in order to expand the coverage and quality of the services provided.

Embraer announced five agreements in the Defense area, during the last quarter, for the KC-390 program, which could result in the sale of up to 54 of the aircraft. The airplane's development program is moving ahead, as planned.  In Farnborough, the Brazilian Air Force (Forca Aerea Brasileira – FAB) formalized its intention to acquire 28 of the aircraft. Through Declarations of Intent signed by the Brazilian government in August and September, Embraer began discussions with four countries, in order to establish industrial partnerships for the program and the future sale of 26 airplanes: 12 to Colombia, six to Chile, six to Portugal, and two to the Czech Republic.
