Embraer Executive Jets is celebrating 10 years of the Lineage 1000E, the ultra-large business jet based on the Embraer 190 commercial jet platform. Embraer unveiled plans for the Lineage 1000E at EBACE 2006. The aircraft was the fourth in Embraer’s business jet portfolio and had its entry into service in 2009. The Lineage 1000E cabin features five distinct areas, where up to 19 passengers can be accommodated with a variety of facilities for lounging, dining, conferencing and relaxing.
As part of this milestone, Embraer has presented an interior concept called the Kyoto Airship, with large vertical windows and skylights. It is inspired by a hypothetical Japanese customer who might want to sit on the floor instead of in a traditional seat. The Kyoto Airship interior features lower windowsills that allow the customer to do so without feeling like they are sitting in a tub. For this new concept, the Embraer Executive Jets’ team drew on the technical specs of an ERJ 145 regional jet platform which has large observer windows, designed for use by the Brazilian Air Force.
The Lineage 1000E interior can be customized, with up to three lavatories and a stand-up shower. The aircraft features a baggage compartment and a walk-in luggage area that is accessible in flight. The aircraft features the fully digital HD Honeywell Ovation Select IFE/CMS, controlled with an iPad. A fully integrated media center concentrates multiple media devices and video inputs, including game consoles, and delivers HD video and audio on a 5.1 surround sound system. The aircraft has a range of 4,600 nautical miles with eight passengers, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves.
