Portugal orders 5 x KC-390

Portugal is ordering five multi mission Embraer KC-390.....

Portal Embraer

I went to see the Kc-390 again at Le Bourget few weeks back. Laughingly it can carry one of their Airbus Helicopters H225M in the back or S-70 Blackhawk or Uh-1 Huey. The flight engineer showed me the winch system in the floor for pulling the helos in, and one Test Pilot explained that the cockpit is like the Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

Be good for carrying their new AW119 Koalas if so need be.

Anyhow here are my photos of the Kc-390.

Cheers

The KC-390 is a very nice aeroplane which is ideally placed to do well on the export market.

The Portuguese ordering from another Portuguese speaking country? Surprise!

In seriousness, it does look like a good machine and fits in the niches..

It’s a slightly bigger ‘C-130’, which is what the market wanted.
Not a slightly smaller ‘C-17’, which the market didn’t,

Good write up's on it on various Aviation Forums.
Everything does not have to be Airbus or Boeing!
