About Embraer’s Executive Jets

Embraer’s Executive Jets portfolio consists of six aircraft: the entry level Phenom 100, light
Phenom 300, midlight Legacy 450, midsize Legacy 500, super midsize Legacy 600, and ultralarge Lineage 1000 jets. These aircraft offer cabin sizes and flexible ranges that are well-suited to the most diverse demands, permitting greater work productivity and saving valuable travel time, which is enjoyed in comfort and privacy.

The entry level Phenom 100 can accommodate up to eight occupants and has seven different
interior options designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA. Its range of 1,178
nautical miles (2,182 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of
flying nonstop from New York to Miami, in the U.S.; from London to Rome, in Europe; or from
Brisbane to Melbourne, in Australia. The jet was certified in December 2008, and has proved to
be the fastest and to have the largest baggage capacity in its category. The Phenom 100 has the
latest in cockpit design, and a private aft lavatory is one of its competitive features.

The Phenom 300 light jet accommodates up to ten occupants in a spacious and pleasant interior,
also designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA. Swept wings, with winglets,
and modern onboard systems were developed with outstanding flight performance in mind. A
single refueling port, an externally serviced lavatory, and excellent cabin pressurization are some of the jet’s distinctive features. The Phenom 300 is one of the fastest aircraft in the light jet
category, reaching 521 mph (839 km/h, or 453 knots – KTAS), and it can fly at an altitude of up
to 45,000 feet (13,716 meters). Its range of 1,971 nautical miles (3,650 km), including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from New York to Dallas, in the
U.S.; from London to Athens, in Europe; or from Delhi (India) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

Launched in 2008, the midlight Legacy 450 and midsize Legacy 500 set new paradigms in their
respective executive jet categories. Their interiors were designed in partnership with BMW
Group DesignworksUSA, and offer unequaled comfort and style. These aircraft will have the
largest cabin and the best acoustical insulation in their classes. A flat-floor stand-up (six-foot)
cabin, excellent pressurization, and vacuum lavatories are other highlights of the Legacy 450 and
Legacy 500, complementing their superior performance and low operating costs.

The new-generation Rockwell Collins Pro Line Fusion™ avionics system will provide
extensive situational awareness with a highly intuitive interface. Honeywell’s HTF7500E
state-of-the-art engines incorporate the latest technologies for meeting performance
requirements with improved efficiency, in terms of fuel consumption, facilitated maintenance,
low operating costs, and reduced noise and pollution emissions, thus lessening their
environmental impact. The jets will be the fastest in their categories and the only ones
equipped with cutting-edge fly-by-wire electronic flight controls that increase operating safety
and passenger comfort, while reducing pilot workload and fuel consumption.

The midlight Legacy 450 is designed to carry up to nine passengers. Its range will be 2,300
nautical miles (4,260 km) with four passengers, or 2,200 nautical miles (4,070 km) with eight
passengers, both including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, meaning the jet will be able to fly
nonstop from London to Moscow (Russia) or Rabat (Morocco); from Delhi (India) to Dubai
or Hong Kong; or from Jakarta (Indonesia) to Calcutta (India).

The midsize Legacy 500 will carry up to nine passengers. It is designed for a range of 3,000
nautical miles (5,560 km) with four passengers, or 2,800 nautical miles (5,190 km) with eight
passengers, both including NBAA IFR fuel reserves. These characteristics will allow
customers to fly from New York to Los Angeles, in the U.S.; or from Moscow (Russia) to
Mumbai (India).

The super midsize Legacy 600 carries 13 passengers (standard configuration) in comfort and
privacy in three distinct cabin zones. The refined interior offers leather seats, sofa, credenza,
and tables for meals or meetings. The airplane also has a spacious galley for preparing hot and
cold meals, an ample aft lavatory, wardrobes, cabinets, and an entertainment system with
DVD and satellite communication. Optional High-Speed Data (HSD) equipment and Wi-Fi
technology enable customers to browse the Internet, access e-mail, and transfer files during
trips, providing a better use of time, increased work productivity, and more entertainment
possibilities. The aircraft has a large baggage compartment, which is easily accessed during
flight, and has a total capacity of 286 cubic feet (8,100 liters). The jet has a cruising speed of
Mach 0.80. Its range of 3,250 nautical miles (6,019 km) with eight passengers, or 3,400
nautical miles (6,297 km) with four passengers, both with NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means
that the jet can fly nonstop from Munich (Germany), London or Geneva (Switzerland) to
Dubai; from Berlin (Germany) to Praia (Cape Verde); from Frankfurt (Germany) to Karachi
(Pakistan); from Hamburg (Germany) to Delhi; from Los Angeles (U.S.) to Honolulu
(Hawaii); from Delhi (India) or Singapore to Tokyo (Japan); or from Shanghai (China) to

dispatch reliability and low operating costs.

The ultra-large Lineage 1000 is Embraer’s biggest executive jet and can carry 19 passengers
in five cabin zones. Its range of 4,400 nautical miles (8,149 km) with eight passengers, or
4,500 nautical miles (8,334 km) with four passengers, both with NBAA IFR fuel reserves,
means that the jet is able to fly nonstop from London to Dubai; from Dubai to Johannesburg
(South Africa); from New York to Moscow; or from Singapore to Sydney (Australia). The
interior design gives priority to comfort and refinement, and was designed in conjunction with
Priestman Goode, from the U.K.. The cabin uses the category’s most sophisticated materials.

A wide variety of configurations meets all passenger requirements with enough space to
work, rest, and hold meetings. Optional items include Wi-Fi technology, access to the
Internet, and Electronic Flight Bag (EFB). An ample aft baggage compartment, pressurized
and conveniently accessible during flight, has a total capacity of 323 cubic feet (9,140 liters)
and is the largest among all competitors. Honeywell’s Primus Epic® integrated avionics
system has five Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) multi-functional control screens, Cursor
Control Device (CCD), auto-throttle, weather radar with turbulence detection, and other stateof-
the-art technologies. The Lineage 1000 is equipped with the latest electronic fly-by-wire
flight control system.

In order to meet the demands of executive jet customers, Embraer invested in the creation of a
support system consisting of six Company-owned service centers and an extensive authorized
service center network, worldwide. The Company also has partnerships with renowned
companies in the areas of logistics and pilot and mechanic training, besides offering routine
inspections, scheduled and unscheduled maintenance and special service solution programs,
like the Embraer Executive Care (EEC). The Company’s product support structure covers flight
operations, and technical and maintenance support customized according to the operating
profile of each aircraft, as well as a new customer Contact Center. This structure makes possible
a significant reduction of the aircraft costs and downtime and maximizes the benefits of this
important business tool. More information about Embraer Executive Jets is available at
