ADEX 2023

ADEX is Korea’s only defense trade show. Embraer’s defense and security products are operational and present in over 60 countries.

This includes the ever-growing popular C-390 Millennium multi-mission transport aircraft and the A-29 Super Tucano light attack and training aircraft, which complements the company’s wider solutions for air, land, sea, and space umbrella. 

Bosco da Costa Junior, President & CEO of Embraer Defense & Security said: “We are honoured to be at ADEX, and we look forward to growing our relations with the Korean customers and Korea’s broader aerospace community.” 

Embraer and South Korea 

The relationship between the Brazilian aircraft manufacturers and South Korea has been strong. In 2022, Embraer inked Memorandums of Understanding (MoU) with several Korean aerospace companies. 


These companies include  ASTG (Aerospace Technology of Global), EMK (EM Korea Co.), and Kencoa Aerospace. 

The cooperation between Embraer and these companies has a clear-cut objective, and that is to uplift the Korean defense industry’s partner for future supply of parts for the latest C-390 Millennium transporter aircraft.

The C-390 Millennium

The C-390 Millennium aircraft is a new generation of multi-mission military transport aircraft. The aircraft is currently proudly flying for the  Brazilian Air Force (FAB).

It is reported that the Air Force’s existing fleet presents an operational availability of 80% and mission accomplishment rates over 99%. This means that it demonstrates exceptional productivity for an aircraft this size.
