  1. Sickening how the leaders of the US aviation industry have to share their technology. Jobs overseas? thought Obama was bringing back home? Right! NOT.

  2. Who is losing with it in fact is the Brazilian aeronautical industry, the United States are not losing anything, since many of the components of the aircraft will be manufactured in the United States itself

  3. You can’t compete with Lockheed Martin. Keep your tin cans to yourself. “We don’t need no stinkin planes from Brazil”. We make the finest aircraft in the world. Read the news!
