SAO PAULO May 16 (Reuters) - Brazilian planemaker Embraer SA may challenge the state funding received by Canadian rival Bombardier Inc before the World Trade Organization, a senior executive told Reuters on Monday.

Paulo Cesar Silva, the head of Embraer's commercial aviation unit, said in a telephone interview that favorable government financing gives Bombardier an unfair advantage in sales campaigns where its new C Series is up against Embraer's E-Jets. (Reporting by Brad Haynes; Editing by Sandra Maler)
