Brazilian jet-maker Embraer (NYSE:ERJ) has long been a high flyer in the commercial aviation sector. Recently, however, the company has been growing its executive aviation and defense segments.

Our roving reporter Rex Moore caught up with Embraer at last week's Air & Space Conference near Washington, D.C., where he chatted with corporate communications VP Bob Stangarone. In this video, Stangarone explains two important defense offerings: the KC-390 medium-lift military transport, and the single-engine, light-attack Super Tucano aircraft.
