    <P><STRONG>A planned budget increase may kick-start many pending military procurement programmes</STRONG></P> <P>It expected a $3.4 billion budget for 2007, but Brazil's ministry of defence could only watch as that sum was unexpectedly trimmed in February to $2.82 billion - exacerbating protracted delays in major defence equipment programmes for all three armed forces. But the disappointment was tempered by news that plans are in hand to increase funding over the next five years to an annual $4.84 billion - of which $3.7 billion would be allotted to the air force within the same period. </P> <P>With many procurement programmes pending, ranging from fighters to executive transport aircraft, the increase is especially welcome to the air force. Its priority is the acquisition of 12-16 multi-role fighters under a programme preliminarily budgeted at $1.1 billion and which is viewed as a successor to the ill-fated F-X BR fighter procurement programme cancelled in 2005.

    <p>Embraer's decision to make a concerted effort to enter the business aircraft market with corporate variants of its EMB-135 and EMB-170 regional airliners came as no surprise. It is not enough for the company to build a good aircraft, however. The manufacturer will need to accommodate a type of customer with different demands from the regional market with which Embraer is at home. </p> <p>The Brazilian company is joining the growing line of regional and large aircraft manufacturers vying for a slice of the larger aircraft end of the lucrative business aircraft market which, if predictions are borne out, will account for 170 corporate configured airliners valued at $7.6 billion by 2010. </p> <p>Cross fertilisation between business and commercial aircraft within a manufacturer is nothing new. The mainstream airliner builders have always sold a small number of airliners to corporate customers, while in the mid-1980s Bombardier turned to the Challenger business jet which formed the bashttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Business-studies-59405/
