Brazil’s Embraer Brings Its Full Line of Executive Jets to US

Embraer's Phenom 100 Brazilian aircraft manufacturer Embraer will be showcasing its executive jets portfolio in the United States during this year's National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) 60th Annual Meeting & Convention, held at the Georgia World Congress Center, in Atlanta, Georgia, September 25-27.

In the event, Embraer will exhibit the new interior of the Legacy 600, full-scale mock-ups of the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300, and a cabin section of the Lineage 1000. In addition, the Company will show, for the first time, its concept for two new executive jets.

"We are pleased to display our full line of executive jets at this year's NBAA annual convention," said Luis Carlos Affonso, Embraer's Executive Vice President, Executive Jets.

"We are certain that visitors will enjoy the experience of the enhanced Legacy 600, as well as the opportunity to explore new products and new concepts through full-scale mock-ups."

Embraer will hold a press conference on Monday, September 24, at 11:00 a.m., in room B207 of the convention hall, which will be attended by the Company's President and CEO Frederico Fleury Curado, as well as Luis Carlos Affonso and other corporate officers.

The first Legacy 600 jet equipped with the interior enhancements announced last May will be on display in the static area. These improvements include redesigned seats, a slimmer valence, and enhanced cabin soundproofing.

New features have also been added to the galley for further convenience during in-flight service. A mock-up of the Phenom 100 very light jet will also be displayed.

Full-scale mock-ups of the Phenom 300 extended cabin light jet (to be shown in the U.S. for the first time) and a section of the cabin of the Lineage 1000 ultra-large jet may be visited at the Company's booth 3737.

The new Phenom 300 cabin length (35 centimeters, or 14 inches, longer) was announced last May and will provide greater passenger comfort and increased floor plan flexibility.
