The contract covers spare parts, repair, pool, maintenance, and technical services for the five Embraer jets currently in use by the Hellenic Air Force.
“The Hellenic Air Force is pleased to sign this contract with Embraer. We have been operating the aircraft since January 2000 and have counted on excellent support from Embraer when needed. With the Follow On Support Agreement, the Hellenic Air Force will raise even more the readiness and availability of its fleet”, says General Kontantinous Kleniatis, Chief of Staff of the Hellenic Air Force Support Command.

The contract includes a dedicated parts Pool Program for Embraer’s military customers, in which inventory costs are shared between customers purchasing the service. This is a cost-effective way to assure availability for ERJ-135/145, Legacy 600/650, and the AEW&C operated by defense forces and government customers. The program has been in operation for more than 15 years and has provided an efficient and effective service that reflects Embraer’s commitment to excellence, over the years the program has allowed for the availability of high-value resources, support, and component exchange services.
