Brazilian Federal Police Receives First Embraer E175

Second Aircraft Due in 2022

Brazil’s Federal Police received the first of two Embraer E175 jets in Brasilia on 8 December. The second is scheduled for delivery next year.

The introduction of the E175, a modern and efficient jet, will further expand the scope of our main missions, such as deploying agents to fight organised crime operations, transferring detainees, moving equipment and cargo,” explained the Director-General of the Federal Police, Paulo Gustavo Maiurino.

The partnership between Embraer and the Federal Police spans over 15 years, since the entry into operation of two ERJ 145 jets in 2006, both of which are still operating. As well as current aircraft, the E175 will also be able to support other security forces in the country, being an asset that boosts not only Federal Police operations but those for the entire sphere of public security.

“[…] the Federal Police has chosen to operate the E175 jet, which will be the largest aircraft in the country used for public security, adding capacity in the transport of passengers and cargo, in addition to increasing flight range, which expands the number of missions the Federal Police can perform,” added Jackson Schneider, President and CEO of Embraer Defense and Security.

As it is an aircraft that previously operated in Britain before being handed over to the Federal Police, the E175 went through numerous modifications at OGMA, an Embraer Group company in Portugal, including all maintenance work necessary to resume operations and comply with Brazil’s operational requirements, in addition to being repainted.
