Embraer, once one of the largest commercial and military aircraft companies in the world, brings 37 years of manufacturing excellence to the aviation industry. In May of 2006, Embraer entered the private jet market when they introduced the Lineage 1000, an ultra-large executive jet based on the Embraer 190 regional jet airliner. It surpasses equivalent aircraft in range, cabin size, baggage space, and the ability to indulge. Certified the beginning of 2008, the $43 million Lineage already bodes well with customers with 20 firm orders to date.
Perhaps the most appealing is the Lineage’s cabin; if you saw it, you would understand. The Lineage’s cabin is double the size of any aircraft with comparable range, measuring an astounding 4,085 cubic feet with a hard to match range of 4,200 nautical miles. Depending on the seating configuration, the five-zone cabin can carry 13 to 19 passengers and 2 or 3 crew. With a stand-up height of 6 ft 7in, the Lineage measures 8 ft 10 in wide and 84 ft 4 in long. Its baggage compartment exceeds all similar aircraft in size at 443 cubic ft total. 323 cubic ft of pressurized, walk-in storage is accessible in-flight for passenger convenience.
