Gov. Scott Celebrates Embraer’s Success During First Day of Paris Air Show

Today, Governor Rick Scott celebrated Embraer’s announcement of aircraft orders for as many as 365 twin-engine passenger jetliners. Embraer’s U.S. headquarters is based in Ft. Lauderdale.

Gov Scott said, “We are proud of Embraer’s success at the air show today. Embraer is the first foreign airplane manufacturer to build planes in the U.S. and they chose Florida for those operations. Embraer is also a sponsor of the 2013 Florida Pavilion, which makes them an incredible partner and a force for job creation in the Sunshine State.”

Since Governor Scott took office, Embraer has created close to 500 jobs in Florida from Jacksonville to Melbourne. Frederico Curado, President and CEO of Embraer and Gary Spulak, President of Embraer Aircraft Holding, Inc. have both been presented with Governor’s Business Ambassador Awards for their persistence in creating jobs for Florida families.

The collection of companies and organizations represented in the Florida Pavilion demonstrates the innovation and expertise that makes Florida an international leader in aerospace and aviation. In addition, the Pavilion allows small and mid-sized Florida companies to cost effectively market their products to a top-level international audience. The 2013 Florida Pavilion is larger than any other state at the Air Show and one of the largest that Enterprise Florida has ever hosted.
