In a ceremony held, yesterday, at EBACE 2010 (European Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition), in Geneva, Switzerland, Embraer received the type certificate for the Phenom 300 from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), which was granted on April 29. This approval came in on schedule, as the program steadily advances.

“Following certification by Brazil’s ANAC and the U.S.’s FAA, last December, EASA has also certified the Phenom 300, with no restrictions,” said Luís Carlos Affonso, Embraer Executive Vice President, Executive Jets. “The light jet’s singular and innovative features make this aircraft uniquely competitive in the business aviation market.”

The overall certification campaign involved five aircraft that performed more than 1,200 flight test hours, certifying the aircraft for RVSM (Reduced Vertical Separation Minimum), day and night IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) operations, and flying into known and forecasted icing conditions. In addition, there were full-scale static and fatigue tests, and rigs were used for environmental, avionics, and electrical systems.

The Phenom 300 accommodates up to ten occupants in a spacious and pleasant interior, 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 (U.S.); London to Athens (Europe); or Delhi (India) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates).

Embraer (Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica S.A. - NYSE: ERJ; BM&FBovespa: EMBR3) is the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial jets up to 120 seats, and one of Brazil’s leading exporters.

This document may contain projections, statements and estimates regarding circumstances or events yet to take place. Those projections and estimates are based largely on current expectations, forecasts on future events and financial tendencies that affect Embraer’s businesses. Those estimates are subject to risks, uncertainties and suppositions that include, among others: general economic, political and trade conditions in Brazil and in those markets where Embraer does business; expectations on industry trends; the Company’s investment plans; its capacity to develop and deliver products on the dates previously agreed upon, and existing and future governmental regulations. The words “believe”, “may”, “is able”, “will be able”, “intend”, “continue”, “anticipate”, “expect” and other similar terms are supposed to identify potentialities. Embraer does not feel compelled to publish updates nor to revise any estimates due to new information, future events or any other facts. In view of the inherent risks and uncertainties, such estimates, events and circumstances may not take place. The actual results can therefore differ substantially from those previously published as Embraer expectations.
