Embraer Executive Jets announced today, during its press conference at the NBAA Business Aviation Convention & Exhibition 2013, the introduction of the Lineage 1000E executive jet. The ultra-large Lineage 1000E is Embraer’s largest executive jet and carries up to 19 passengers in five cabin zones, and is equipped with an electronic fly-by-wire flight control system.
The Lineage 1000E introduces an array of enhancements that deliver an extended range, enhanced interior features and functionalities, including latest generation in-flight entertainment, enhanced cockpit options, and a distinctive exterior design.
“The new Lineage 1000E delivers superior customer experience throughout the aircraft, greater performance and efficiency, as well as enhanced flight deck resources,” said Ernest Edwards, President, Embraer Executive Jets.
The range of the Lineage 1000E, with eight passengers aboard, was extended from 4,400 nm to 4,600 nm. This gain also translates into higher payload capacity for the same range and greater fuel efficiency for the same mission, and payload.
The Lineage 1000E will operate exceptionally well at restrictive airports like Aspen, where flights to Gander will become viable, and at Teterboro, where destinations as far as Vancouver, Quito, or Los Angeles will be well within reach. Its Steep Approach capability enables the Lineage 1000E to operate out of London City and reach destinations such as Kuwait.
The enhanced interior design of the Lineage 1000E is reflected in the new seats, electric doors, refreshed galley and cabinetry design, automatic tables, ergonomics and other cabin amenities. The latest generation in entertainment solution is complemented by the improved acoustic comfort of the cabin. The new interior design was achieved through a partnership with List Components and Furniture, of Austria, and with extensive use of customer and specialist feedback.
The Lineage 1000E features the Honeywell Ovation Select entertainment and cabin management system, completely digital, controlled either at each seat or wirelessly with an iPad. A fully integrated Media Center conveniently concentrates multiple media devices and video inputs, such as Blu-Ray players, iPod docks and HDMI or USB ports, and delivers high definition video and 5.1 surround sound on larger, slimmer displays. The flexibly configurable furniture, with adjustable shelves and PC power outlets, makes for easy installation of game consoles.
The Lineage 1000E offers the optional Autoland, which conducts approach, touch down, and a five-second rollout, when the autopilot is engaged. Proven over five years of operation in the Embraer E190 commercial jet fleet, Autoland offers mitigation of non-stabilized approaches, and response to gusts in turbulent conditions, minimizing the occurrence of hard landings, and ultimately, reducing pilot workload. The Lineage 1000E is available with the optional Embraer Enhanced Vision System (E2VS), which bundles Head Up Displays (HUD) and an Enhanced Vision System (EVS).
The new Lineage 1000E is distinguished by its array of windows, which is adaptive to the interior layout and renders weight saving gains.
