The ultra-large Lineage 1000E is Embraer’s largest executive jet and
carries up to 19 passengers in five cabin zones, and is equipped with an
electronic fly-by-wire flight control system.

The Lineage 1000E
introduces an array of enhancements that deliver an extended range,
enhanced interior features and functionalities, including latest
generation in-flight entertainment, enhanced cockpit options, and a
distinctive exterior design.

“The new Lineage 1000E delivers
superior customer experience throughout the aircraft, greater
performance and efficiency, as well as enhanced flight deck resources,”
said Ernest Edwards, President, Embraer Executive Jets.

The range
of the Lineage 1000E, with eight passengers aboard, was extended from
4,400 nm to 4,600 nm. This gain also translates into higher payload
capacity for the same range and greater fuel efficiency for the same
mission, and payload.


The Lineage 1000E will operate
exceptionally well at restrictive airports like Aspen, where flights to
Gander will become viable, and at Teterboro, where destinations as far
as Vancouver, Quito, or Los Angeles will be well within reach. Its Steep
Approach capability enables the Lineage 1000E to operate out of London
City and reach destinations such as Kuwait.
The enhanced
interior design of the Lineage 1000E is reflected in the new seats,
electric doors, refreshed galley and cabinetry design, automatic tables,
ergonomics and other cabin amenities. The latest generation in
entertainment solution is complemented by the improved acoustic comfort
of the cabin. The new interior design was achieved through a partnership
with List Components and Furniture, of Austria, and with extensive use
of customer and specialist feedback.

The Lineage 1000E features
the Honeywell Ovation Select entertainment and cabin management system,
completely digital, controlled either at each seat or wirelessly with an
iPad. A fully integrated Media Center conveniently concentrates
multiple media devices and video inputs, such as Blu-Ray players, iPod
docks and HDMI or USB ports, and delivers high definition video and 5.1
surround sound on larger, slimmer displays. The flexibly configurable
furniture, with adjustable shelves and PC power outlets, makes for easy
installation of game consoles.

The Lineage 1000E offers the
optional Autoland, which conducts approach, touch down, and a
five-second rollout, when the autopilot is engaged.  Proven over five
years of operation in the Embraer E190 commercial jet fleet, Autoland
offers mitigation of non-stabilized approaches, and response to gusts in
turbulent conditions, minimizing the occurrence of hard landings, and
ultimately, reducing pilot workload. The Lineage 1000E is available with
the optional Embraer Enhanced Vision System (E2VS), which bundles Head
Up Displays (HUD) and an Enhanced Vision System (EVS).
