Embraer will participate in the 2010 Singapore Airshow, to be held at the Changi exhibition Center, February 2-7. Now in its tenth year in Asia Pacific, Embraer will promote its entire range of products from the airline, executive, and defense segments at chalet CD51.
The Legacy 600 and Phenom 100 executive jets will be in the static display, as well as fullscale mock-ups of the Legacy 500 – for the first time in Asia – and the Phenom 300. A
Company press conference, focused on the executive aviation market, is scheduled for
Monday, February 1, at 2:00 p.m., in Function Room 4. In Asia Pacific, the Embraer’s footprint has grown steadily, since its first commercial aircraft, the Bandeirante, started flying in 1978. Today, more than 45 E-Jets – a family of jets seating 70 to 122 passengers – are in operation, with one taking off every four minutes. In 2009, these aircraft carried nearly 5 million passengers to 105 destinations and logged over 100,000 flight hours in the region, which continues to be a very important market for Embraer. In addition to airline, executive and defense aircraft sales, the Company has designated authorized service centers to provide maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO).
