Embraer and Aeroplex have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate on a project to qualify Aeroplex as an Embraer Authorized Service Center (EASC) in Hungary.
The objective is to support and enable Aeroplex to provide line and intermediate maintenance of the KC-390 Millennium aircraft of the Hungarian Defense Forces.
“This MoU is part of Embraer’s commitment to expand collaboration with Hungary in the aerospace field,” said Leonardo Lopes Ferrucci, Head of Embraer Defense & Security Hungary. “The local MRO capability will become an operational advantage for the support of Hungarian KC-390s after entry into service.”

The Hungarian government has signed a contract with Embraer for the acquisition of two C-390 Millennium multi-mission transport aircraft, in its air-to-air refueling (AAR) configuration, designated KC-390. The first aircraft is expected to be delivered in 2024.
The KC-390 for the Hungarian Defense Forces will be the first in the world with the intensive care unit in its configuration, an essential feature for carrying out humanitarian missions.
The aircraft will be used to perform various types of military and civilian missions, including medical evacuation, cargo and troop transport, precision cargo airdrop, parachute operations and CAS.
The KC-390 is fully NATO compatible, and with its probe and drug refueling system, the aircraft can refuel the Hungarian JAS 39 Gripen, as well as other aircraft using the same technology.
“We are delighted to work with Embraer on this critical project for the Hungarian Defense Forces,” said Aeroplex CEO Demény Árpad. “As Embraer brings its more than 50 years of expertise serving aircraft around the world, Aeroplex will apply all of its knowledge and diverse portfolio to service the KC-390 Millennium. I am sure we will learn a lot together.
Embraer opened an office in Budapest in August 2021.
