KC-390 development cost savings of $42 million

Issue No. 21 | November 01-15, 2012

The Brazilian Air Force (FAB) and Embraer have reduced contract costs of developing the KC-390 aircraft by about $42 million, after a reassessment of the contract held on October 19.

This reduction was only possible thanks to the joint efforts of the Coordinating Committee for Combat Aircraft (COPAC) of FAB and Embraer, which, through the Programme Executive of the KC-X Project, conducted analyses and used modern management tools to good effect.
