”For AICAT, an association representing about 100 Austrian aviation companies, most of which are SMEs and position themselves in the supply chain, an intensified cooperation with Embraer underpinned by an MoU is a great opportunity and will help both Embraer and the Austrian Aeronautical sector, creating a more structured collaboration for their mutual benefit”, says Reinhard Marak, CEO of AICAT.

“Embraer and Austria have been building a long-term relationship for many years, and this partnership will continue to advance with the new Memorandum of Understanding. We thank AICAT, the companies, and the Austrian government representatives for this important step in our partnership,” says Marcio Monteiro, Market Intelligence Vice-President of Embraer Defense & Security.
