  • ANALYSIS: Novaer develops new trainer, utility aircraft for world market

    News | 08 Apr 2015 09:09 | Felipe Salles

    ​Privately-owned Novaer Craft’s thirty-odd employees temporarily operate from rented offices in a rather rundown office park positioned at the very edge of the São José dos Campos aerodrome. The location – adjacent to Embraer headquarters – is appropriate. Founded and managed by ex-Embraer employees, Novaer trusts that its new side-by-side, twin-seat, aerobatic basic trainer design – dubbed T-Xc (for trainer, future, carbonfibre) – has what it takes to replace the 100+ Neiva Universal 40-year old trainers still used in the Brazilian Air Force Academy.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Novaer-develops-new-trainer-utility-aircraft-for-world-market-410578/

    Embraer has a long tradition of identifying – and succeeding in – unattended market niches.
