São José dos Campos, September 15, 2009 – Embraer has invited all Legacy 600 customers, operators, and suppliers from the USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean to attend the traditional Embraer Executive Operators Conference (EEOC) at the Four Seasons Hotel, in Las Vegas, Nev., U.S., September 15-17. The conference is designed to cover technical issues through panel discussions and updates on all executive aviation products, as well as to provide customers with the best ownership experience in the industry.

From the very beginning of the Legacy 600 program, Embraer has been committed to building a community of Embraer Executive Jet operators and to providing them with an annual opportunity to meet with the Company and each other to discuss topics of mutual interest,” says Scott Kalister, Embraer Vice President, Customer Support and Services, USA, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean – Executive Jets.

Kalister’s welcome message at the event’s official website stresses that, in today’s economic climate, the Embraer executive jets team believes these times require closer contact with customers, adding value in every way to their relationship with the Company. Therefore, this event reaffirms Embraer’s commitment to an annual Legacy 600 operators conference, as promised at the first one, in 2002. The meeting also explores more ways to make 2009 EEOC – USA even more valuable from both maintenance and flight operations perspectives.

New Features of 2009 EEOC – USA

This year, Embraer is adopting a new format that will include more time for a customer-supplier- Embraer representative interface. Service desks will be available for the Embraer Executive Care and Warranty programs, and for the Embraer Maintenance Tracking and Planning Service (EMTPS), as well as a FlyEmbraer station that did not exist last year. The focus on operations has been expanded with presentations by the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) on “Next Generation AirTrans” and “Air Traffic Management”, and a keynote address by Ed Bolen, President of the NBAA.

In addition to the Legacy 600 conference, Embraer will hold the first Phenom Forum on the afternoon of Thursday, September 17, for all Phenom 100 owners, operators and position holders. In keeping with Embraer’s commitment to involve customers in every new program, the Company will also organize a Maintenance and Service Advisory Roundtable for the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500. For more on EEOC 2009, visit​.
