Czech Republic enters talks with Embraer for C-390 aircraft deal

WARSAW, Poland — The Czech government is entering negotiations to buy an undisclosed number of Embraer C-390 Millennium transport aircraft for the nation’s military, the Defence Ministry announced Tuesday.

“The Armed Forces of the Czech Republic currently do not own a medium- and long-range aircraft with a flight time of at least 12 hours which would also be capable of taking off and landing at airports with unpaved runways,” the ministry said in a statement.

The Czech company Aero Vodochody supplies to Brazil’s Embraer various components used to make the C-390.
