Embraer Lineage 1000: Buyer’s and Investor’s Guide

Based on Embraer’s 190 regional jet airliner, the Lineage 1000 can be split into up to five different zones and is an interior designer’s dream.

After success as a commercial aircraft builder Embraer, in 2006, the Brazilian manufacturer decided to enter the business jet market with the Lineage 1000, an executive jet based on the Embraer 190 regional jet airliner.

Being based on an airliner, the aircraft is spacious, 4,085 cubic feet with a range of 4,500 nautical miles. Depending on the configuration, the passenger cabin can carry up to 19 people and a crew of two or three. The aircraft has a height of 6’7″, is 8’10” wide and 84’4″ in length. The aircraft can be split into up to five different zones and is an interior designer’s dream.

The Lineage 1000 has a long-range cruise speed of 521 miles per hour and can carry eight passengers and two crew 4,400 nautical miles. Although the figures are impressive, the Lineage 1000 is unable to fly as far as an Airbus Corporate Jet or Boeing Business Jet. It needs a take-off distance of 6,135 feet (1,870m) and can land on 2,664 feet (812m).
