Brazil-based Embraer delivered 57 jets during June, July and August, up over 48 it delivered during the same time a year ago.
Deliveries included 29 commercial jets, 27 business jets and one plane to the defense industry. So far this year, Embraer, based in Sao Jose dos Campos, delivered 153 aircraft.
Deliveries were boosted by growth in shipments of its Phenom 100 entry-level business jet.
Embraer’s backlog totaled $18.6 billion on September 30, down from $19.8 billion on June 30.
