In addition to troop and cargo transportation, the Embraer KC-390’s mission capability includes in-flight refueling, search and rescue, and medical evacuation.

Goodrich Corp. has been selected by Embraer to provide the primary flight -control system for the new Embraer KC-390 jet transport aircraft. Under the agreement, Goodrich will design and manufacture a new, fully integrated, fly-by-wire, primary flight control system comprising electrohydrostatic actuators, electro-backup hydrostatic actuators, actuator electronics, and electrical controls. Goodrich will develop and deliver the system through the joint efforts of its Actuation Systems business, Engine Control & Electrical Power Systems business, and the Goodrich Electronic Systems Center. The KC-390 aircraft will be capable of operating from short and semi-prepared runways in challenging environments worldwide.
