RIO DE JANEIRO, Dec 20 () - Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA is planning to distribute $1.6 billion to $1.7 billion in extraordinary dividends to shareholders, using proceeds from its recent deal with Boeing Co, the Valor Econômico newspaper reported on Thursday.

Boeing in July struck a deal to take an 80 percent stake in the commercial aircraft arm of Embraer, a move expected to reshape the global passenger aircraft industry.

Under the deal, which values Embraer's jet business at $5.26 billion according to the most recent calculations, Embraer expects net proceeds to total $3 billion.

Embraer did not provide an immediate comment.
