The Lineage 1000, Embraer’s ultra-large executive jet, arrived on November 16 at PATS Aircraft Completions, a division of DeCrane Aerospace, located in Georgetown, Del., United States. PATS has a contract to complete 35 Lineage interiors over a 10-year period, with throughput increasing from four aircraft a year initially to eight a year by 2010. The aircraft is being outfitted with a customer-selected interior, designed by Priestman Goode, from the United Kingdom.
The first 19-seat Lineage 1000, which is based on the Embraer 190 large regional jet, is scheduled to be delivered to Aamer Abul Jalil Al Fahim in mid-2008 and based in Abu Dhabi, where it will be operated for private use.
