ATW Magazine’s Aviation Award Goes to Brazil’s Embraer

    Brazilian Embraer’s Executive Vice-President for Engineering and Development, Satoshi Yokota accepted Air Transport World magazine’s Aviation Technology Achievement Award, Monday, February 20, in Singapore.

    The award was presented to Embraer at a gala dinner on the eve of the Asian Aerospace 2006 show, being held February 21-26 at the Changi Exhibition Center.

    The Aviation Technology Achievement award goes to a manufacturer serving the airline industry through the development of a product seen as significantly advancing airline service, capability, efficiency and safety.

    This product is the EMBRAER 170/190 family, comprising four new-generation jetliners tailored to right-size airline capacity in the 70-to-110 seat size.

    "This ATW award recognizes the excellence of Embraer’s E-Jets and the use of technology to meet and exceed the needs of our customers. We believe this is a key reason for the wide airline acceptance to the four aircraft of this new family. We are honored to accept it," said Satoshi Yokota.

    The ATW awards program was created in 1974 and has gained in importance and stature to become one of the most coveted and valued honors a company or a person in the airline industry can receive.

    Winners are selected by Air Transport World magazine’s editorial staff after a lengthy consultative process. Nominations are solicited from the publication’s editors around the globe, and also are accepted from any person or organization within the industry.

    Two ATW awards are presented every year: Airline of the Year and Regional Airline of the Year. Two more, Passenger Service and Aviation Technology Achievement, won by Embraer in 2006, are presented only on relevant occasions.
