Facility in São José dos Campos is dedicated to Embraer Executive Jets customers

São José dos Campos, December 23, 2009 – Embraer officially opened a service center
dedicated exclusively to executive jets, in December, at its headquarters in São José dos
Campos. Now, the Company offers a new support and services option, especially for Latin
American customers.

“As promised at the last LABACE, we
have met our goal of delivering this new
service center dedicated to executive
aviation to our customers, during 2009,”
said Edson Carlos Mallaco, Embraer
Vice President, Customer Support and
Services – Executive Jets. “It is with a
profound sense of satisfaction that we
have moved forward in our purpose of
always serving our customers better, and
I want to take advantage of the moment
to congratulate everyone who is involved
in this achievement.”

The service center began its activities at the end of October 2009. Since then, both light
(routine and six-month check) and heavy (48-month overhaul) maintenance have been
performed on the Legacy 600 jet, as well as several services on the Phenom 100 aircraft.

Located in the São José dos Campos Airport, the new center has 17,438 square feet (1,620
square meters) of area aircraft and another 1,938 square feet (180 square meters) for
administrative functions. At this facility, Embraer offers scheduled and unscheduled
maintenance for the Phenom and Legacy families of executive jets, as well as remote assistance
(at the site where the aircraft is located, when it is unable to fly to the service center).

Embraer’s fleet of executive jets has grown rapidly in Latin America, in recent years. At the
present time, the backlog of firm orders to be delivered is more than 100 airplanes. Eleven
Legacy 600 jets operate in the region and more than ten Phenom 100s have been delivered.
