At press time, Brazilian manufacturer Embraer was set to unveil a full-size mockup of its proposed next business jet at the NBAA Convention in Atlanta in late September. According to company president and CEO
Frederico Fleury Curado, the mockup does not constitute an official launch of the as-yet-unnamed, nonderivative aircraft, which would fill the niche between Embraer's Phenom 300 and larger Legacy 600. He added that the company is still considering plans for a second aircraft in that same market segment. He said that Embraer has now received nonrefundable orders for more than 500 Phenom 100s. The airplane is scheduled for certification next summer. n

“"I've got a list of corporations that have gotten out of their airplanes [because of criticism from politicians]. It is the stupidest thing I've ever seen. When you look at the time and cost savings; it does not make sense not to fly [privately]. You can't let public perception interfere with your business decision to fly. It either is a good business decision or it isn't."”
