Milestone jet is the sixth to join JetSuite’s fleet

São José dos Campos, February 1, 2010
Embraer delivered the 100th Phenom 100 aircraft,
last Friday, to JetSuite, a U.S.-based private jet
charter company. The commemorative aircraft is
the sixth delivered to this customer.

“Delivering the 100th Phenom 100 jet just over
one year after its certification represents an
important achievement for Embraer,” said Luís
Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice
President – Executive Jets. “We are very glad to
have delivered this commemorative plane to
JetSuite and to contribute to their innovative
and expanding business.”

“JetSuite is honored to accept this special
aircraft from Embraer. We are delighted by
our partnership, and are grateful for
Embraer’s support and for the reliable,
revolutionary jet they have produced,” said
JetSuite Air CEO Alex Wilcox. “Our brandnew
Phenom 100 jets make for a much better
flying experience than our competitors’
older, less efficient aircraft, and often at half
the cost. Our customers share our love for
the Phenom. When they fly on it once, they
come back again and again.”

The Phenom 100 was certified in December 2008, and has proven to be the fastest jet in its
class. Featuring an unparalleled level of comfort, the jet is equipped with the latest in cockpit
and cabin design. It also offers a private aft lavatory, which is one of its competitive features.

With a range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, the
Phenom 100 is capable of flying nonstop from New York to Miami, in the U.S.; London to
Rome, in Europe; or Brisbane to Melbourne, in Australia. The aircraft is flying in over ten
countries and has already accumulated more than 7,000 flight hours.
