September 7, 2011 by Alton K. Marsh, Senior Editor, AOPA Pilot

Well, that didn’t take long. Bob Stangarone, who left Cessna Aircraft in mid-August to “stay ahead of change,” is head of Embraer’s North American public relations operations. Embraer is the scariest competitor Cessna has–given the success of Embraer’s Phenom jet. Still, the company is affected by the economic doldrums like everyone else. Embraer is estimated to have had 23 deliveries in the second quarter, compared to¬†40 for the second quarter of 2010, and eight in the first quarter, compared to 20 for the same period in 2010.
