Embraer studies turboprop to be developed through Boeing ventureBrazilian planemaker Embraer is in the advanced stages of studying the launch of a new turboprop aircraft to be developed through a venture it is planning with Boeing, subject to corporate approvals, a top executive said on Monday. The aircraft would be in the same size range or even larger than the 70-seat ATR-72, a Franco-Italian aircraft that currently dominates the market, Embraer Commercial Aviation Chief Executive John Slattery told Reuters. Embraer agreed in 2018 to fold its commercial aircraft activities into a venture to be controlled by Boeing.
