FAA grants second consecutive Aviation Maintenance Technician Award

São José dos Campos, April 14, 2010 – Embraer’s wholly owned executive jet service
centers in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Mesa, Arizona, has received the 2010 Federal
Aviation Administration (FAA) Diamond Certificates. The award is the FAA’s highest
recognition for excellence in aviation maintenance training.

The Company had been granted the same prestigious certificate last year. This second
consecutive award is an even greater achievement, since the prerequisites for qualifying are
more stringent and the number of successful candidates is much smaller.

“Embraer’s commitment to prioritizing the training of its maintenance staff, in order to
provide best-in-class customer support and services to its Phenom and Legacy customers, is
highlighted by this outstanding milestone,” said Jacques Blondeau, Director, Embraer
Executive Jet Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) Service Centers – North America.

This specific recognition confirms that Embraer actively participates in the FAA Aviation
Technician Training Program, and employs a fully trained service center workforce
throughout its expanding and well-located network in the U.S.

About the U.S.’s FAA Awards

The Aviation Maintenance Technician (AMT) Award was established by the Federal Aviation
Administration (FAA) to encourage aviation companies and technicians to continuously
pursue the highest standards of maintenance training.

To that end, the FAA issues the annual awards to employees and their employers in
recognition of outstanding achievement. Employees receive FAA AMT Awards based on the
number of maintenance training hours taken during each calendar year. In turn, employers
may be granted Certificates of Excellence based on the percentage of employees who earn
AMT Awards. The Diamond Certificate is the FAA’s highest award for excellence in aircraft
maintenance training, and to receive it the facility must have all of its technicians AMTqualified
in the same year.
