The Embraer KC-390 protoype involved in a stall speed incident on 12 October has not been significantly damaged and is set to return to flight testing following minor repairs.
The Brazilian airframer says in a statement provided to FlightGlobal that the aircraft, 001, “experienced an event beyond the planned limit” during a simulated icing test, which took the aircraft beyond its airspeed and load factor operating limitations.
That forced the crew to apply recovery procedures, and the aircraft returned to Embraer’s test base at Gavião Peixoto.
It has not flown for more than a month since the incident.

Al sole della Florida ... sotto il segno dell'ottimismo ...

In a sign that testing activity has resumed since an incident six weeks ago, Embraer’s KC-390 arrived at the company’s US base in Jacksonville, Florida on 20 November to begin a series of flight tests before certification.
The KC-390's flight test centre is based deep in Brazil's interior at the remote Gavião Peixoto complex.
But Embraer will test its dual-role transport and tanker in Jacksonville, evaluating avionics systems, crosswind operations and external noise.
Embraer Defense and Security chief executive Jackson Schneider is optimistic the KC-390 will achieve certification on time by the end of this year.

Fuori pista ... senza, per fortuna, conseguenze ...

 

Embraer’s first KC-390 flight test aircraft ran off the runway during a ground test in Gaviao Peixoto, Brazil, on 5 May, the company says.
The crew of the aircraft exited the aircraft without injury, the company adds.
Embraer has started an investigation to understand what led to the runway excursion.
The company also reported the incident to CENIPA, the aircraft accidents investigation and prevention bureau of the Brazilian air force.

Embraer now plans to complete flight testing and deliver the first production version of the KC-390 to the Brazilian air force up to six months late in the first half of 2019, a company executive says on 31 July.
The nine-year-old development programme for the twin-engined tanker-transport had been on track until an “operational issue” caused the first of two flight test aircraft to overrun a runway in Brazil, leading to heavy damage to the landing gear and fuselage, Embraer says.
Embraer had planned to deliver the third KC-390 to the Brazilian air force by the end of the year, but that aircraft will now be diverted to help the company complete the flight test campaign in the absence of the first prototype, says chief financial officer Nelson Salgado. 
The fourth KC-390 to roll-off Embraer’s assembly line will now be the first of 28 aircraft delivered to the Brazilian air force.

Embraer successfully completed a test of troop unloading and evacuation via the front and rear doors of its KC-390 at Brasília Air Force Base, in Brazil on 21 November.
The tests are required for the aircraft to achieve Final Operational Capability, which is part of the final military certification of the aircraft, expected to occur in the last quarter of 2019, Embraer says (*).  
The KC-390 is a medium-sized military transport aircraft powered by two International Aero Engines V2500 turbofans. The transport can carry 80 passengers or 64 paratroopers.
