Beijing, China, December 22, 2011 – Embraer has delivered the first Lineage 1000 ultralarge executive jet to an un-named Chinese customer.

“It is inspiring news to have the first Lineage 1000 delivered to the Greater China Region, which is an important milestone for the Company’s presence in this market,” said Guan Dongyuan, President of Embraer China. “We believe that the Lineage 1000, with its cuttingedge technology, outstanding performance and intelligent luxury, is one of the best choices for the top-tier customers in this region.”

The Lineage 1000’s range of 8,334 kilometers (4,500 nautical miles) assures its capability of flying nonstop from Beijing (China) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates) or from Hong Kong (China) to Sydney (Australia) with four passengers and NBAA IFR fuel reserves. Equipped with an advanced avionics suite and the latest electronic fly-by-wire flight control system, the jet provides pilots with a highly intuitive and professional cockpit for safe and smooth trips. The aircraft is the only jet in its category providing passengers with five distinct and spacious cabin zones. Onboard amenities may include a queen-size bed, stand-up shower and complete audio and entertainment systems. A walk-in aft baggage area, the largest among all business jets in the world, is conveniently accessible throughout the flight.

Embraer has become a leader in the executive aviation market in the last decade. The Company has decided to invest in the segment, and is today the only manufacturer in the world to offer a full line of executive jets, from the entry level to the ultra-large. It is increasingly well-known and well-received by customers, worldwide. Among its operators is the renowned movie star Jackie Chan, who was appointed Embraer Executive Jets’ brand ambassador. According to the 2010 General Aviation Manufacturer’s Association (GAMA) report, Embraer was the company with the highest market share growth over the previous year, resulting in 19% total market share.
