Jan. 9, 2008, São José dos Campos, Brazil – Embraer delivered 61 jets to the Commercial
Aviation, Executive Aviation, and Defense and Government segments during the fourth quarter
of 2007 (4Q07), meeting its goal of delivering 165 to 170 aircraft in 2007.
The Company recorded the largest annual airplane delivery figure in its history, 169 jets, and its firm order backlog achieved a new record of US$ 18.8 billion, on December 31, 2007.
During 2007, the Company sought to adapt its industrial processes to the delivery schedule
established with customers. Such actions as hiring new employees, implementing a third shift
for some of the production processes, and adopting a lean manufacturing concept for the
industrial processes, allied with the determination of all employees, led the Company to a
30% increase in the number of deliveries over the previous year.
Embraer delivered 45 jets to the Commercial Aviation segment, 14 Legacy 600s to the Executive
Aviation segment and two jets to the Defense and Government segment during the 4Q07.
*Includes only the deliveries of executive jets configured for carrying
government officials and aircraft delivered to State-run airlines.
