Embraer has received from India's Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), the type certification (TC) for its ultra-large Lineage 1000 executive jet.
This certification complements the TC's already awarded to the aircraft by Brazil's National Civil Aviation Agency (Agencia Nacional de Aviacao Civil - ANAC) and the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) in December 2008, as well as the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in January 2009. To date, nine Lineage 1000 jets are in operation worldwide.
"The receipt of a type certificate is always a momentous occasion, and we are very pleased that the jet has received blessings from the Indian authorities," said Jose Eduardo Costas, Embraer Vice-President, Marketing and Sales, Asia Pacific - Executive Jets, adding that "the DGCA's certification enhances our commitment to the market and we are glad to offer our Indian customers and prospects a certified unique product which delivers a 'home away from home' concept without compromising operational flexibility, efficiency and economics."
