Aircraft can now operate in high-temperature airports

São José dos Campos, September 29, 2009 –
Embraer received ISA+39ºC certification for
its EMBRAER 190 commercial jet, in the third
quarter of 2009, from Brazil’s National Civil
Aviation Agency (Agência Nacional de
Aviação Civil – ANAC) and from the U.S.’s
Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). With
this certificate, the aircraft will be able to fly
without operating restriction in airports located
in hot regions, at temperatures of up to 129ºF
(54ºC) at sea level.

“The ISA+39ºC certification is one more step in the aircraft’s improvement process, and it
will assist many of our customers,” says Luciano Castro, Embraer Vice President, Programs –
Airline Market. “This optional item extends the EMBRAER 190’s operational scope to hightemperature regions, such as the Middle East, Africa, and the Asia Pacific region.”

The aircraft will now be able to land and take off in airports located in hot regions. For
customers based in the Middle East, the African continent, and the Asia Pacific region, for
instance, the improvement means the possibility to open new routes and increase time
schedule flexibility, since it will allow the aircraft to operate during day-time, when
temperatures reach extremely high levels.

About the ISA+39ºC certification

International Standard Atmosphere (ISA) is a model that defines temperature, pressure, density, and viscosity of the Earth’s atmosphere, as a function of altitude. According to this model, the standard temperature at sea level, or ISA, is 59ºF (15ºC). Thus, the ISA+39ºC of the
certification of the EMBRAER 190 jet refers to a temperature of 129ºF (54ºC) at sea level.

About the EMBRAER 170/190 Family of E-Jets

The EMBRAER 170/190 family of E-Jets consists of four commercial jets with 70 to 122
seats, featuring advanced engineering design, efficient performance, outstanding operating
economics, low emission levels and a spacious cabin. In September 2009, just five years after
the first delivery, this jet family reached the extraordinary milestone of 600 aircraft delivered to
47 customers in 32 countries, worldwide.

The E-Jets have a maximum cruising speed of Mach 0.82, can fly at 41,000 feet (12,497 meters), and have ranges of up to 2,400 nautical miles (4,448 km). The high degree of commonality among the four aircraft – EMBRAER 170, EMBRAER 175, EMBRAER 190 and EMBRAER 195 – results in exceptional savings for carriers, in terms of crew training and costs of spare parts and maintenance. Another key feature of the E-Jets is the state-of-the-art fly-by-wire technology, which increases operating safety, while reducing pilot workload and fuel consumption.

The EMBRAER 170/190 family provides superior comfort with its double-bubble fuselage
design, which includes two main passenger entrances and two service doors that minimize
aircraft turn-around time. The E-Jets offer much more space for passengers, in a single or
dual-class layout, than other aircraft with similar seating capacities.

The E-Jets have achieved outstanding success, with nearly 900 firm orders logged, worldwide.
This proven family is helping airlines to rightsize low load factor narrowbody routes, to replace
older, inefficient airplanes, and to develop new markets with lower operating costs, greater
efficiency, and outstanding passenger comfort. For more information about Embraer’s
