In terms of aircraft demand, the effects of the recovery can also be perceived from the total number of Embraer’s ongoing sales campaigns, which is considerably higher than in the last quarter of 2009, and, to some extent, have already materialized into concrete sales results, which were announced during this year’s Farnborough Airshow,” Company statement.
