First Delivery: Embraer Lineage 1000

Will Be On Display At EBACE 2009

After a not-so-good First Quarter, some good news still manages to leak out of the Embraer community with the first delivery of a Lineage 1000 executive jet, Thursday, in São José dos Campos, Brazil. The aircraft went to HE Aamer Abdul Jalil Al Fahim, of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. The aircraft, to be managed on behalf of the owner by Prestige Jet, also of Abu Dhabi, will have its first public exhibition at EBACE, May 12-14, in Geneva, Switzerland.

“We are honored by Mr. Al Fahim’s choice of the Lineage 1000 and to be able to work with Prestige Jet in the introduction of this new, exciting ultra-large business jet program,” said Frederico Fleury Curado, Embraer President & CEO. “The Lineage 1000 offers fantastic comfort and performance attributes, exceeding all of its original design assumptions and fostering its great market potential.”

The maximum range of the Lineage 1000, originally projected to be 4,200 nautical miles with eight passengers, or 4,350 nautical miles with four passengers, has been extended to 4,400 nautical miles with eight passengers, or 4,500 nautical miles with four passengers, both with NBAA IFR reserves.

“I am certain that this Lineage 1000 aircraft will play an integral role in the future success and progress of our business, on all of its fronts,” said HE Aamer Abdul Jalil Al Fahim, the founder and the Chairman of Ark Angel Investments.

In Embraer’s portfolio of six executive jets, the Lineage 1000 is the largest aircraft. The airplane was launched three years ago, at EBACE. The Company showed a full-scale cross section of the jet cabin at EBACE 2008, and now the jet, itself, will debut at the event.

Prestige Jet was formed in 2007, operating out of Abu Dhabi International Airport, and has established itself as a provider of top-of-range executive flight. The range of services offered by Prestige Jet extends also to charter brokerage travel and aircraft sales, acquisition, and management.
