There had been some speculations in previous threads on whether Embraer would offer a VIP version of its E170 airliner. They did early on floated the idea, but so far, only the Lineage 1000 is actively marketed as a business jet and no order for it yet is reflected in their Executive Aviation summary.
However, the June 30, 2006 Orderbook on their website lists two (2) firm Defense Market orders for E170s. The footnote indicates that those are for "government authority transportation." Embraer is unusually silent about these orders, but if not executive/shuttle types, might one of the two be the first Embraer "Air Force One" destined for a relatively smaller country's Head of State?
The range wouldn't be ideal at first glance, but with just 8 to 12 passengers or so and baggage, it could well be viable and good enough for regional trips. What do you think - who could it be?
