Embraer will participate in the Aviation Expo (AVEX) 2010 air show November 7 to 10, at Egypt’s Sharm El Sheikh International Airport (SSH). The Company will promote its full line of commercial and executive jets, as well as its complementary range of customer services and solutions. In the static display, Embraer will showcase the Phenom 300 light executive jet, which is making its first appearance in the region, together with the EMBRAER 190 commercial jet in Bahrain’s Gulf Air livery.
“Bringing the Phenom 300 jet to AVEX for first time will give visitors and customers the opportunity to experience Embraer’s newest state-of-the-art executive jets and see the avant-garde features and technologies previously unknown in this class of executive jets,” said Colin Steven, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales, Europe, Africa and the Middle East – Executive Jets.
Less than one year after the Phenom 300 entered service, in December 2009, the success and acceptance of the Phenom family in the executive aviation market continues to grow. Last month, during the U.S. National Business Aviation Association (NBAA) 63rd Annual Meeting and Convention, Embraer signed a purchase agreement with NetJets for up to 125 Phenom 300s.
