Embraer’s agricultural aviation division ended January with the sale of eight EMB-203 Ipanema planes, equivalent to one third of the total negotiated during the whole of 2020. The good result is being driven by the favorable performance of Brazilian agribusiness and technological innovations incorporated in the new version of the aircraft. With almost 1,500 units delivered, Ipanema is the leader in the agricultural segment with a 60% share of the national market. Its role in precision agriculture combines high technology and tradition of a product that continuously evolves to meet the requirements of high productivity and low operating cost. The Ipanema 203, the most current model in the series, has improvements such as the replacement of wing parts by others with new geometry and more resistant stainless steel material, which postpones even more eventual wear and tear generated by the severe natural condition of the operation in the field, and maintenance expenses over the years. The new aerial sprayer also has a new design on the engine hood, with new air outlet grilles, ensuring greater cooling. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of Ipanema’s first flight carried out in 1970, a painting alluding to the date was created for the aerial spray that now leaves the factory with a new visual identity. The colors of the Brazilian flag were chosen to highlight this 100% national aeronautical project.
