Embraer last week announced that they have signed a contract with the Royal Thai Army for a second ERJ 135 jet. This third airplane for the Government of Thailand will be used to carry civilian and military officials, and the delivery is scheduled for 2009.
At the end of 2008, Embraer delivered one ERJ 135 to the Royal Thai Army and other to the Royal Thai Navy. They will be
used in Thailand to transport government officials and to handle Medical Evacuation (MEDEVAC) missions by the Royal Thai Navy.
The airplane for the Royal Thai Navy is based at the U-Tapao Air Base, and the Royal Thai Armyâ€™s aircraft in Bangkok.
