Follows Closely The Certification Of The Company's Regional Airliners

Russia's Interstate Aviation Committee (IAC), also known by its Russian acronym MAK, has granted type certification to Embraer for the Lineage 1000 business aircraft, opening the door for Russian customers to register and operate the type in Russia.

“This is exceptionally exciting news that the Lineage 1000 has received validation from the Russian authorities, a strong endorsement of our product,” said Colin Steven, Vice President Sales – Europe, Middle-East and Africa, Embraer Executive Jets. “Embraer Executive Jets has already received strong market acceptance in the country with more than 40 Legacy 600s and 650s owned by Russian customers now flying in the region today. We are pleased to be able to better serve our customers by offering the Lineage 1000 on the Russian register for those who wish to operate the aircraft in Russia.”

The Lineage 1000 is Embraer Executive Jets’ largest executive aircraft in a seven-strong family of business aircraft models. It provides a balance of performance, intelligent luxury and high reliability. Its range, listed as 4,500 nautical miles with four passengers and NBAA IFR fuel reserves, gives the aircraft the capability to fly nonstop from Moscow (Russia) to New York (U.S), from Beijing (China) to Dubai (United Arab Emirates), from Hong Kong to Sydney (Australia), and from London (UK) to Dubai. The aircraft is equipped with the Honeywell Primus Epic avionics suite and a fly-by-wire flight control system, which provide pilots with a highly intuitive cockpit.

Earlier this week, the MAK granted type certification to Embraer for its E190 and E195 regional airliners.
