European Aviation Safety Agency certifies Fort Lauderdale, FL, and Mesa, AZ centers

São José dos Campos, September 15, 2009 – Embraer’s European Executive Jets customers
have two company-owned service centers in the United States certified by the European
Aviation Safety Agency (EASA): one in Mesa, Ariz., and the other in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

The two facilities were inaugurated last year – September 15 and October 27, respectively –
and are able to perform non-routine maintenance services on the Phenom 100 and Legacy 600
jets registered in Europe.

“EASA’s Part 145 certification of two Embraer wholly owned-and-operated service centers
enhances our capacity to better respond to our European customers, giving them more
flexibility when flying in the United States,” says Scott Kalister, Embraer Vice President,
Customer Support USA, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean – Executive Jets.

In addition to supporting existing Legacy 600 and Phenom 100 customers based in Europe,
Embraer stands ready to support Phenom 100 deliveries en route from Brazil to their new
European bases. For more about Embraer Executive Jets customer support, visit
