      Many Brave or Foolish Pilots
      Did all those take-delivery pilots really go into Brazil and fly those new planes out of Brazil or did Embraer pilos fly them out of Brazil to deliver them? All foreign pilots risk arrest or death on Brazilian air routes! ATC is still the same that lead to indictment of Joe Lapore aand Jan Palidino. That could happen to any of the others!

      Interesting to note……
      that neither TAM nor GOL….have many Embraer planes, but mostly from Boeing and Airbus !

      No trust in Embraer ?

      And today I just read that Boeing order book amounts to US 120 billion !
