 ​Embraer Executive Jets Lineage 1000 Receives Steep-Approach Certification


Geneva, Switzerland, May 20, 2013 – The ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive aircraft achieved steep-approach certification of 5.5 degrees from ANAC - Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil and the EASA – European Aviation Safety Agency, Embraer Executive Jets announced today.

“This is yet another milestone in the development of the industry’s most versatile, ultra-large jet,” said Ernest Edwards, President, Embraer Executive Jets. “With the steep-approach certification, the Lineage 1000 will be able to access airports in many parts of the world where steeper approach angles are required owing to noise or terrain restrictions. This is key to operations at London City Airport and steep-approach certification increases the versatility, as well as, the value of this aircraft significantly. The capability at London City affords customers non-stop service from to Moscow, Istanbul, Cairo, Canary Islands and Reykjavik or, one stop to Los Angeles, Tokyo and Hong Kong. ”

The award-winning Lineage 1000 is the first 21st Century aircraft in its class and offers fly-by-wire flight controls. With the most flexible interior of any ultra-large jet completed by a manufacturer, the Lineage 1000 is the only aircraft offering five cabin zones. The Lineage 1000 can include a bedroom and en-suite shower and has the largest inflight-accessible baggage compartment of any business jet.
