S�o José dos Campos, December 23, 2008 - Embraer's ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet has been awarded type certification by the National Civil Aviation Agency (Ag�ncia Nacional de Avia��o Civil - ANAC) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), the Brazilian and European Union aviation authorities, respectively. Interior Supplemental Type Certificate (STC) will follow, soon, thus completing the development cycle.

"It is with great satisfaction that we receive the certification of the ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet, establishing a range of 4,500 nautical miles," Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets. "This achievement further highlights our commitment to provide our customers, worldwide, with revolutionary products." The Lineage 1000's maximum range, originally projected to be 4,200 nautical miles (7,778 kilometers or 4,833 miles) with eight passengers, or 4,350 nautical miles (8,056 kilometers or 5,005 miles) with four passengers, has been extended to 4,400 nautical miles (8,149 kilometers or 5,063 miles) with eight passengers, or 4,500 nautical miles (8,344 kilometers or 5,179 miles) with four passengers, both with NBAA IFR reserves.

"I congratulate the members of the Lineage 1000 program for its certification," said Henrique Langenegger, Vice-President, Programs - Executive Jets. "They can be proud of having accomplished, and surpassed, the demanding goals of this project, which takes the Company's Executive Jets business to a new level of achievement." Launched, in November 2006, the Lineage 1000 is the largest and most refined executive jet in Embraer's portfolio. The aircraft is based on the EMBRAER 190 commercial jet, which was certified in August 2005, and is one of the four members of the E-Jets family, now operating in 35 countries.

"The proven qualities of the EMBRAER 190 platform bring a mature and reliable Lineage 1000 to the market, with more than 2.2 million flight hours accumulated by the E-Jets family," stated Emílio Matsuo, Embraer Senior Vice President, Engineering. These certifications confirm the Lineage 1000's maximum takeoff weight of 120,150 pounds, or 54,500 kg, and authorize the jet to fly extended operations (ETOPS 120), demonstrating the aircraft's capability to operate on routes that have a diversion airport up to 120 minutes from the flight path. The Lineage 1000 can, therefore, fly long distances over oceans, deserts and other inhospitable areas, thus increasing its operational range, everywhere in the world.

The approval includes the newly designed auxiliary fuel system. The system is compliant with the latest SFAR 88 safety requirements and is seamlessly integrated with the state-of-the-art Honeywell Primus Epic® avionics suite, whose automation features reduce pilot workload.

Over 20 Lineage 1000 jets have been sold around the world. U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification is expected soon.
