São José dos Campos, São Paulo, Brazil, 2011/08/31 - Type certificate paves the way for the aircraft’s entry to the Chinese executive aviation market - Embraer.com. NYSE: ERJ; Bovespa: EMBR3
Embraer’s ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet received Type Certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), following the certifications from United States Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), European Aviation Safety Authority (EASA) and Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC). This paves the way to register and operate the Linage 1000 in China, and marks an important step symbolizing Embraer’s commitment to the Chinese executive aviation market.
“It is exceptionally exciting news that the Lineage 1000 has received validation from CAAC, which is a strong recognition of our product. Embraer is now able to better serve customers of the Lineage 1000 in the Chinese market, and those who require certification from CAAC, as well,” said Ernest Edwards, President, Embraer Executive Jets.
The Lineage 1000 is Embraer’s largest executive jet among its full line of seven different models. It provides a balance of performance, intelligent luxury and high reliability. Its range (4,500 nautical miles, or 8,334 kilometers, with four passengers and NBAA IFR fuel reserves) assures the jet’s capability to fly nonstop from Beijing (China) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates), from Hong Kong to Sydney (Australia), from London (UK) to Dubai, and from New York (U.S.) to Moscow (Russia). The jet is equipped with the Honeywell Primus Epic® avionics suite and the latest electronic fly-by-wire flight control system, which provide pilots with a highly intuitive and professional cockpit to guarantee safe and smooth trips.
The aircraft also features an extremely spacious interior that can accommodate 19 passengers in five distinct private zones, providing ultimate comfort and elegance, as well as state-of-the-art technologies, to facilitate working during flight. Onboard amenities may include a queen-size bed, stand-up shower, wireless internet access, and complete audio and entertainment systems. A pressurized walk-in aft baggage area, which is the largest in its category, is conveniently accessible throughout the flight.
