Hispano-Suiza will supply the complete system, composed of the following:

• Ram Air Turbine (RAT);
• RAT electric generator and generator control unit;
• RAT actuation system (deployment and restow mechanism).

The Ram Air Turbine System will convert air stream in electric power for the loads that are essential for continued safe flight and landing in case of emergency. With this program, Safran increases its leadership in the supply of more electrical systems.

“This mission-critical system has been entrusted to Hispano-Suiza, based on its long history of providing solutions for aviation,” said Eduardo Bonini Santos Pinto, Vice President Operations and COO, Embraer Defense and Security. “Whether for military or humanitarian airlift or refueling situations, the KC-390 will be ensured safe continued flight or landing capabilities under emergency conditions.”

“We are delighted to start a new partnership with Embraer in this innovative and ambitious aircraft program, and to contribute in the success of this aircraft with our performing solutions that meet customers expectations,” stated Olivier Horaist, Hispano-Suiza Chairman and CEO.

Gérald Farrenc, Safran Senior Vice President Brazil Programs, added “This latest mark of trust from Embraer clearly reflects the ability of Safran group’s companies to satisfy its requirements and reinforces our two Groups’ partnership.”

The KC-390 is a twin-turbofan powered medium-weight transport jet that can be refueled in flight and can be used for in-flight or on-ground refueling of other aircraft.
