About Embraer Executive Jets

Embraer’s Executive Jets portfolio consists of seven aircraft: the entry level Phenom 100,
light Phenom 300, midlight Legacy 450, midsize Legacy 500, super midsize Legacy 600,
large Legacy 650, and ultra-large 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, ease of 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 that 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 nonstop 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, or Singapore, to Tokyo (Japan); or from Shanghai (China) to Delhi.

More than 180 Legacy 600 jets presently operate in 26 countries, with high rates of dispatch
reliability and low operating costs.

The large Legacy 650 was announced in October 2009 at the 62nd Annual Meeting and
Convention of the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), in Orlando, Florida,
USA. Based on the successful Legacy 600 platform, it will provide longer trips for up to 14
passengers, while maintaining the same level of comfort. Its range of 3,900 nautical miles
(7,223 km) with four passengers, or 3,800 nautical miles (7,038 km) with eight passengers,
both with NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means that the aircraft can fly nonstop from London to
New York; Dubai to London or Singapore; Miami to São Paulo (Brazil); Singapore to Sydney
(Australia); or Mumbai to Central Europe. The Legacy 600 and Legacy 650 feature the
Primus Elite™ avionics, which incorporates an upgraded graphical user interface, enabling
smarter and faster decisions while reducing pilot workload, and advanced navigation
capabilities. The Legacy 650 first delivery is scheduled for the second semester of 2010.

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 (Russia); 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

Cursor Control Device (CCD), auto-throttle, weather radar with turbulence detection, and
other state-of-the-art technologies. The Lineage 1000 is equipped with the latest electronic
fly-by wire flight control system.

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, as well as partnerships with renowned companies in the
areas of logistics and pilot and mechanic training. They offer 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 to the operating profile of each aircraft, as well
as a new customer Contact Center. This structure makes possible a significant reduction of
aircraft costs and downtime and maximizes the benefits of this important business tool. More
