Embraer has awarded Goodrich a contract to provide the primary flight control system for the new KC-390 aircraft for the Brazilian Air Force.

Goodrich will deliver a fully-integrated, fly-by wire, primary flight control system comprising electro-hydrostatic actuators (EHAs), electro-backup hydrostatic actuators (EBHAs), actuator electronics and electrical controls.

Goodrich will develop the system through the joint efforts of its Actuation Systems business, Engine Control and Electrical Power Systems business and the Goodrich Electronic Systems Center.

The KC-390 medium-size, twin-engine jet-powered transport aircraft will be capable of operating from short and semi-prepared runways in challenging environments worldwide.

In addition to troop and cargo transportation, the KC-390 will provide in-flight refueling, search and rescue and medical evacuation.
