São José dos Campos, May 21, 2007 - Embraer unveiled interior enhancements to the Legacy 600, today, at the European Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (EBACE), in Geneva, Switzerland.

The cabin height was increased by 2 inches (5 cm) and now measures 6 feet (1.83 meter). The taller cabin, a slimmer valance and redesigned seats enhance both comfort and space throughout three distinct zones, a unique feature in the super mid- size category. The stylish new Legacy 600 seats, with dual tone leather options, are even more comfortable with a seamless berthing feature for sleep or relaxation. Noise abatement improvements have enhanced cabin sound proofing. Auxiliary audio input will allow cabin sound integration.

We are delighted to present these enhancements to the Legacy 600,” said Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets. “We will continue to interact with customers to make the Legacy 600 even more comfortable for a fulfilling travel experience.”

The galley received new features to add convenience and capacity for in-flight service. More spacious compartments and retractable tables were added, as well as a larger water reservoir. Optional items include a wine chiller and multiple oven combinations, including microwave.

The baggage compartment will be equipped with supports for storage and transportation of the towbar.

The Legacy 600 with the enhanced interior will be available in the first quarter of 2008 and will be priced at US$ 25.41 million (January 2008 economic conditions). Legacy 600 positions are available for mid-2008.
