Embraer recently discussed how in-flight connectivity will play a key role in the next new “intelligent” commercial aircraft it brings to market.
Now the Brazilian airframer has made a March 2010 technology presentation available to the public. The presentation provides a more graphical idea of what Embraer’s larger technology development strategy entails (while sadly holding back on the really juicy bits).
It’s still worth a look, however. Embraer is expected to decide by year-end whether or not to bring a clean-sheet aircraft to market, or re-engine and add new technology to its current E-Jets.
