SAO PAULO Oct 31 (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA expects a strong fourth quarter to help the company meet its full-year targets for deliveries and operating margins, Chief Financial Officer Jose Antonio Filippo said on a Thursday conference call.

Embraer posted a 19 percent drop in profit on Thursday because it delivered smaller, less profitable aircraft, underlining questions about its profit margin targets.
