The Embraer EMB 110 Bandeirante (English: pioneer) is a Brazilian general purpose 15–21 passenger twin-turboprop light transport aircraft

Goto Embraer Aircraft

The EMB 110 was designed by the French engineer Max Holste, under the supervision of Ozires Silva (Brazilian aeronautical engineer), following the specifications of the IPD-6504 program set by the Brazilian Ministry of Aeronautics in 1965.[2] The goal was to create a general purpose aircraft, suitable for both civilian and military roles with a low operational cost and high reliability.

Operational History

Further development of the EMB 110 was halted by the manufacturer in order to shift focus to the larger, faster, and pressurized 30-seat EMB 120 Brasilia.

On Dec 15, 2010, the Brazilian Air Force first flew an upgraded EMB 110 equipped with modern avionics equipment. Designated as the C/P-95, the aircraft has had several new systems installed by Israeli firm Elbit Systems’ Brazilian subsidiary, Aeroeletronica. The Brazilian Air Force has an active fleet of 96 EMB-110s
