This is the Company's largest Phenom executive jet order, worth US$ 746 million at 2007 list price, and could reach US$ 1.12 billion, if all options are exercised. An additional agreement for a maintenance and support program is valued at over US$ 200 million. The relationship between Embraer and Flight Options dates back to 2003, with the acquisition of its first Legacy 600. The company currently operates a fleet of eight Legacy 600 executive jets. The delivery of the first Flight Options Phenom 300 jet is scheduled for the end of 2009. The aircraft will meet the heavy demand for the company's concept of fractional aircraft ownership, throughout its nationwide service network in the United States.
