Increased Mobility


The ability to project joint forces over great distances is essential to every military. The KC-390 offers unmatched mobility, delivering much more logistics, much faster, much further, anywhere and, therefore, requiring fewer aircraft to accomplish the most demanding missions, as well as flying more missions using the same number of flight hours when compared to previous generation turboprop aircraft. The aircraft’s outstanding performance, displaying cruise speed in excess of 470 knots, offers the operator the capability to perform more sorties per day, cover greater distances in a single crew-duty day and to respond quickly to crisis situations.
