The family of Embraer Executive Jets has achieved new milestones this year. The development of the new midlight Legacy 450 and midsize Legacy 500 jets moves steadily ahead, and the first metal cut was performed on April 19. The first quarter was marked by the consolidation of the production of the Phenom jets, with the Phenom 300 entering operation. In a little over a year, Embraer manufactured and delivered 100 Phenom 100 airplanes. In April, the two Embraer Executive Jet Service Centers in the U.S. (Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and Mesa, Arizona) earned the 2010 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) Diamond award, its highest recognition for excellence in aviation maintenance training.
