Brazil Embraer to Sell 21 Aircraft to US’s Eagle Creek

Brazil Embraer's Phenom 100 US-based Eagle Creek Aviation Services, a full-service aircraft sales, management and maintenance provider, confirmed five additional Phenom 100 aircraft options from its original order announced in October 2006. The total value of the new agreement is US$ 14.9 million.

"This additional order from Eagle Creek confirms the wide acceptance of our Phenom jets," said Luis Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets.

"As Eagle Creek continues to expand services to their customers, we are proud to be part of this success by delivering modern aircraft, with high levels of comfort and reliability."

During last year's NBAA Annual Meeting and Convention, in Orlando, Florida, Embraer signed Eagle Creek for 12 Phenom 100 and four Phenom 300 jets, with options for an additional five Phenom aircraft, now confirmed.

At the same time, Embraer announced Eagle Creek as one of the service and maintenance centers for Embraer's Phenom family, as part of the expansion of its authorized network in the United States.

"We are proud to continue enhancing our services by adding five Phenom 100 jets to our fleet," said Matt Hagans, CEO of Eagle Creek. "Following the Phenom 100 first flight, increased interest in this best-in-class very light jet clearly showed that we made the right choice and needed to increase the size of our fleet.

"We are very impressed with these aircraft and are confident that our clients will appreciate the comfort, range, and speed of both the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 aircraft."

The first Phenom jet delivery to Eagle Creek is scheduled for the end of 2008 and the aircraft will be managed, serviced and operated by Eagle Creek Aviation Services.
