Embraer Sells "close To 10" Lineage 1000

Tue May 15, 2007 8:02 pm

Quote:
At the top end, Affonso says Embraer has sold "close to 10" Lineage 1000s, and plans to deliver three or four a year for the next decade. The first of the 7,770km (4,200nm)-range aircraft is being assembled in Saõ José dos Campos. Embraer plans to finish the green aircraft in the third quarter for delivery to its US partner PATS Aircraft in Georgetown, Delaware, for the $10-15 million completion process. First customer delivery is expected in mid-2008.



Quote:
Keeping its new customers in the family will require top-notch customer service, and Embraer is spending $100 million over the next two years to set up four service centres to complement three existing facilities, plus dozens more authorised representatives, all in advance of the first Phenom delivery.

1. Anyone having an idea where they are going to set up these four additional service centers?

2. Having close to 10 Lineage 1000 (Embraer 190) sales clearly shows that it was a very good decision to follow now-defunct Fairchild Dornier´s move to offer the 728Jet as a business jet (Envoy 7), which had sold 25 copies to Flight Options and 3 to other business customers.

Embraer is betting on a healthy business jet market.

The 600 cracked the door...
The 1000 gives them a large cabin option at a low price point.  hyper 
The 100 and 300 will be the volume sales. I'm still undecided as to which will sell better... The design for both is well thought out, but I think the 100 is going to be "pinched" between the Hondajet and the multitude of VLJ's. Then again, the Phenom 100 might be the class leader...  scratchchin  ? The 300 is big enough to fight in its own niche with the Hondajet being its toughest competitor (in my opinion).

I have been enthusiastic for a long time on Embraer's business jet expansion.  spin 

We're about two or three years away from their next product announcement. I'm very curious as to what it will be!

I don't think they have been firmed up yet. I have heard talk of the cities....but nothing offical

Next product announcement will be this year, this has been stated publicly (some interview, don't remember who).

Any hints?

Would expect the Embraer 170 to be announced as Lineage 900, similar to what FD had planned.
