Company delivered 41 jets to the airline, executive and defense markets

São José dos Campos, April 9, 2010 – Embraer closed out the first quarter of 2010 (1Q10)
having delivered 41 jets, one more than the same period in 2009. The airline market received
21 of this total, 19 went to executive aviation, and one to the defense segment, as detailed in
the following table. On March 31, 2010, the firm order backlog totaled US$ 16 billion, or a
reduction of 3.6% of the US$ 16.6 billion of the previous quarter.

During the first three months of the year, the family of Embraer E-Jet operators took in two more members. Gulf Air, from the Kingdom of Bahrain, received two EMBRAER 170 jets through ECC Leasing, a wholly owned subsidiary of Embraer, and Libya’s Petro Air took another two airplanes of the same model. As set forth contractually, US Airways chose not to confirm five
firm orders of the original 37 for the EMBRAER 190. By the end of 1Q10, the airline had
received 25 airplanes of this model.

In the executive aviation segment, the development of the new midlight Legacy 450 and
midsize Legacy 500 jets moves steadily ahead, according to the Progress Report released at
www.EmbraerExecutiveJets.com.br. The last quarter was marked by the consolidation of the
production of the Phenom jets. In a little over a year, Embraer manufactured and delivered
over 100 airplanes.

In the defense area, Embraer continues to develop the KC-390 program in a partnership with
the Brazilian Air Force. The production of the Super Tucano aircraft at Gavião Peixoto plant
advances on schedule. The advanced trainer and light attack airplane continues to be a bestseller, with a total of more than 170 firm orders, and operates in Brazil, Chile, Colombia,
Ecuador, and the Dominican Republic.
