The Lineage 1000 executive jet has also been awarded type certification by the Brazilian aviation authority and by EASA. The interior supplemental type certification was awarded in early 2009, completing the development cycle.
The Lineage 1000 has also exceeded development targets. Tests conducted with the Lineage 100 demonstrated that its initially projected range has been surpassed by approximately 5%, which will result in lower operating costs and, as a consequence, will allow a better market penetration for the Embraers ultra-large model.
