Embraer, Saab Partner For F-X2 Project

Embraer and Saab have partnered in a joint program management for the F-X2 Project.


Embraer will coordinate all development and production activities in Brazil on behalf of Saab and participate in systems development, integration, flight tests, final assembly and deliveries of both the single and two-seat versions of Gripen NG aircraft.

Embraer and Saab will be jointly responsible for the complete development of the two-seat version of the Gripen NG, at the same time that a strategic partnership for future global promotion and marketing of both single and two-seat versions is being discussed between the two companies.

The agreement will be implemented following a successful conclusion of the ongoing discussions between Saab and Brazil relating to the finalization of F-X2 contracts. These talks are proceeding as planned and it is hoped to reach a positive outcome by the end of 2014.
