19,400-square-meter Embraer-owned facility is the second in Brazil

São José dos Campos, August 12, 2009 – In
order to offer business aviation customers a
dedicated maintenance environment in
Brazil, Embraer is implementing a new
service center in the city of São José dos
Campos, 90 km from São Paulo. Located at
the Company’s headquarters, the facilities
will cover 19,380 square feet (1,800 square
meters) and will offer Embraer executive jet
owners agility, efficiency and convenience
for their service needs. Operations are
expected to begin by the end of 2009.

“Establishing these new facilities at our headquarters will provide greater convenience to our
Phenom and Legacy customers in Latin America,” said Edson Carlos Mallaco, Embraer Vice
President, Customer Support and Services – Executive Jets. “With this center dedicated to
business aviation, we can offer distinctively different services to better meet the expectations
of our customers.”

The new service center will be located next to the runway of the São José dos Campos
Airport. It will have an area of 17,440 square feet (1,620 square meters) for aircraft and
another 1,940 square feet (180 square meters) for administration. There, Embraer will offer
scheduled and unscheduled maintenance for the Phenom and Legacy executive jet families,
as well as remote assistance for aircraft that cannot go to the service center.

Based on studies done with customers, Embraer confirmed the importance of the location of
the new facilities near the city of São Paulo. Furthermore, São José dos Campos Airport is
open 24/7, is certified for instrument operations, and has no slot restrictions for flights.

Embraer currently has a service center at its Gavião Peixoto plant, Brazil, about 300 km from the city of São Paulo. It has been performing maintenance operations since 2005, and will continue serving not only business aviation customers, but also commercial and defense aircraft.

Embraer’s fleet of executive jets in Latin America has grown quickly in recent years.

Currently, it has logged firm orders for more than 100 aircraft. Ten Legacy 600 jets operate in the region, and the first Phenom 100 jets were delivered last June.
