Embraer's Lineage 1000 Earns EASA, ANAC Certifications

FAA Approval Expected Shortly For Business-Spec E-Jet Variant

Embraer began December with news its smallest jet, the Phenom 100, had received its Brazilian -- and later, US -- certifications. The company will end the month on the news its largest executive jet, the Embraer 190-based Lineage 1000, has been awarded type certification by Brazil's National Civil Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil - ANAC) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), with FAA approval expected soon.

"It is with great satisfaction that we receive the certification of the ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet, establishing a range of 4,500 nautical miles," Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets. "This achievement further highlights our commitment to provide our customers, worldwide, with revolutionary products."

As with its Phenom 100 announcement, Embraer also touts improved range figures for the Lineage 1000, over its original projections. The aircraft's maximum range, originally projected to be 4,200 nautical miles with eight passengers and 4,350 nautical miles with four passengers, has been extended to 4,400 nautical miles and 4,500 nautical miles, respectively, both with NBAA IFR reserves.

"I congratulate the members of the Lineage 1000 program for its certification," said Henrique Langenegger, Vice-President, Programs – Executive Jets. "They can be proud of having accomplished, and surpassed, the demanding goals of this project, which takes the Company's Executive Jets business to a new level of achievement."

Launched in November 2006, the Lineage 1000 is the largest executive jet in Embraer's portfolio. The aircraft is one of the four members of the E-Jets family, now operating in 35 countries.

"The proven qualities of the Embraer 190 platform bring a mature and reliable Lineage 1000 to the market, with more than 2.2 million flight hours accumulated by the E-Jets family," said Emílio Matsuo, Embraer Senior Vice President, Engineering.

The approvals include ETOPS 120 authorization, as well as the Lineage-specific auxiliary fuel system. Interior Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) is expected to follow "soon," Embraer adds.
