– Embraer will participate in Eur-Avia Cannes 2010 (www.eur-avia.com
), in France, June 4-6. Eur-Avia, now in its fourth edition, is an annual international exhibition dedicated to general aviation in Europe. The event will be staged at Cannes-Mandelieu Airport (CEQ), in the prestigious business center and tourism destination.
The entry level Phenom 100 executive jet is a member of the Phenom family that was launched in 2005, and has established new standards in its category. The pleasant interior, designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA, features the Embraer exclusive Oval LiteTM cross-section that benefits passengers with greater space and comfort, enhanced by an abundance of natural light from the largest windows in the entry level category. In addition, the forward wardrobe and private rear lavatory with storage space add convenience for a premium travel experience.
With a range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 kilometers) and NBAA IFR fuel reserves, the Phenom 100 can fly nonstop from London to Rome, from Paris to Lisbon, from Cannes to Dublin, or from Barcelona to Copenhagen, and many of this aircraft are already operating in Europe. The jet was certified in December 2008, and has proven to be the fastest and to have the largest baggage capacity in its category. There are currently more than 110 in operation around the globe.
Embraer’s Executive Jets portfolio also includes the light Phenom 300, the super midsize Legacy 600, and the ultra-large Lineage 1000. Newcomers include the midlight Legacy 450 and midsize Legacy 500, now under development; and the large Legacy 650, expected to be
certified this year.Note to Editors
