July 21, 2009, São José dos Campos, Brazil – Embraer will be present for the fourth consecutive
year at the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) AirVenture in Oshkosh, Wisconsin,
USA. The annual event, in its 57th edition, is one of the world’s most famous international
gatherings for aviation enthusiasts (www.AirVenture.org ), and will be held July 27 to August 2,
from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
A Phenom 100 entry level jet will be displayed for the first time
at the show, as well as a Phenom 300 light jet full-size mock-up, at the Company’s new
location: Static #347, AeroShell Square.
“The Phenom 100’s debut at this year’s EAA AirVenture is of particular significance, since
its first flight occurred just two short years ago, at the same time as Oshkosh 2007,” said
Ernest Edwards, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales U.S.A., Canada, Mexico, and
the Caribbean – Executive Jets. “The Phenom 100 was certified on schedule and met, or
exceeded, many of its design goals, making it the fastest aircraft, with the longest range and
largest cabin in its class.”
Embraer will host a press briefing on Wednesday, July 29, at 11:00 a.m., at the EAA Press
Headquarters located north of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) tower. Ernie Edwards
will present the latest achievements of the Company’s expanded executive jets portfolio,
consisting of the entry level Phenom 100, the light Phenom 300, the midlight Legacy 450, th
midsize Legacy 500, the super midsize Legacy 600, and the ultra-large Lineage 1000 jets.
