Embraer with over 37 years of experience in both commercial and military aircraft manufacturing entered the private jet market when they introduced the Lineage 1000, an ultra-long and long executive jet. It surpasses other jets in its class in range, cabin size, baggage space and ultimate comfort.
The Lineage 1000 has been largely designed on the successful Embraer 190 with the greatest change being the added fuel tanks in the lower deck cargo hold space, nearly doubling the jet’s range. With a lavish interior divided into five sections including an optional bedroom, washroom and a walk in cargo area at the rear of the aircraft.
The cabin is an impressive 4,085 cubic feet and is double the size of any other aircraft with comparable range. Depending on the seating configuration, the five-zone cabin can accommodate from 13 to 19 passengers and 2 or 3 crew members. The stand-up height is 6ft 7in, width measures 8ft 10in and the length is 84ft 4in.The large baggage compartment can hold 443 cubic feet in total with 323 cubic feet of pressurized , walk in storage conveniently accessible by passengers throughout the flight.
As said previously the enormous cabin is split into five sections each distinctively private, complete with audio and entertainment systems as well as a fully equipped galley. Each Lineage can be configured slightly different to include three lavatories, a stand-up shower, queen size bed and private dining area.
The Lineage can take off in 6,600 feet with a maximum take-off weight of 55,000 kilograms and can cruise at a maximum altitude of 41,000 feet. The engines combined produce an incredible 18,000 lbs of thrust each and are General Electric CF34-10E7-B by pass jet engines.
The Lineage 1000 cockpit is advanced with a Honeywell Primus suite which is completely computerized, featuring worldwide database capabilities, vertical glide path mode and a pictorial vertical situation display. Fitted with SATCOM and weather radar as standard, the Lineage has a state of the art and safety conscious control system.
The Lineage 1000 is gaining popularity in the Middle East with the number orders increasing for this jet and more requests to charter the jet. The Lineage 1000 is a welcome addition to the other executive jets manufactured by Embraer, the Phenom and the Legacy and with the exquisite features, extra range, spacious cabin and luxurious interior the Lineage is a stand out in its class.
