Embraer is pleased to announce that Purdue University, in West Lafayette, Indiana, U.S., has purchased one Phenom 100 as part of the Department of Aviation Technology’s fleet replacement program. The jet was chosen after an extensive evaluation and selection process.

“The acquisition of the Phenom 100 by Purdue University is a testament to the aircraft’s outstanding ease of operation, performance, reliability, and value,” says Ernest Edwards, Embraer Vice President, Marketing and Sales USA, Canada, Mexico, and the Caribbean – Executive Jets.

The Department of Aviation Technology’s current fleet is over 10 years old and is expected to be replaced by mid-2010. Purdue’s partnership with Embraer, through the acquisition of the Phenom 100 entry level jet, will allow the university’s students the distinction of graduating with an FAA jet type rating that no other program provides.

“This new opportunity will permit Purdue to maintain its position at the highest level of prominence in the global aviation education community,” says Dr. Brent D. Bowen, Professor and Head of the Department of Aviation Technology at Purdue University. “Purdue’s already competitive admissions standards will be enhanced by the inclusion of the Phenom 100 in the aviation technology department.”

The fleet of aircraft selected will share a common leading-edge avionics system, so that students will be able to progress more naturally from training planes to jets. The avionics system of the Phenom 100 provides highly intuitive operation, because it was designed by pilots for pilots. The high level of integration between the avionics and all other aircraft systems guarantees that precise and updated information is always available.

The single-pilot certification of the Phenom 100 will also allow Purdue’s entry level jet to be used for business travel, with students copiloting those flights under the guidance of a pilotin-command instructor, thus enhancing their educational experience.

About Purdue University
Purdue University, located in West Lafayette, Indiana, U.S., is the flagship university of the six campuses in the Purdue University system. Purdue was founded on May 6, 1869, as a land-grant university when the Indiana General Assembly, taking advantage of the Morrill Act, accepted a donation of land and money from Lafayette businessman John Purdue to establish a college of science, technology, and agriculture in his name.

The first classes were held on September 16, 1874, with three buildings, six instructors, and 39 students. Today, Purdue has the second largest student enrolment of any university in Indiana, and has one of the largest international student populations of any public university in the United States. The university's Discovery Park and Purdue Research Park are home to hundreds of medical, biotechnology, and nanotechnology laboratories and companies. Purdue was the first university in the world to have ever offered an aeronautics program.

Purdue offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in over 200 major areas of study. The university has been influential in America's history of aviation, having established the first college credit offered in flight training, the first four-year bachelor's degree in aviation, and the first university airport (Purdue University Airport). In the mid-20th century, Purdue's aviation program expanded to encompass advanced spaceflight technology giving rise to Purdue's nickname, the Cradle of Astronauts. Twenty-two of Purdue's graduates are astronauts, including Gus Grissom (one of the original Mercury 7 astronauts), Neil Armstrong (the first person to walk on the moon), and Eugene Cernan (the most recent person to walk on the moon).

Embraer (Empresa Brasileira de Aeronáutica S.A. - NYSE: ERJ; BM&FBovespa: EMBR3) is the world’s largest manufacturer of commercial jets up to 120 seats, and one of Brazil’s leading exporters. Embraer’s headquarters are located in São José dos Campos, São Paulo, and it has offices, industrial operations and customer service facilities in Brazil, China, France, Portugal, Singapore, and the United States. Founded in 1969, the Company designs, develops, manufactures and sells aircraft for the commercial aviation, executive aviation, and defense segments. The Company also provides after sales support and services to customers worldwide. On September 30, 2009, Embraer (embraer.com) had a workforce of 16,986 employees – not counting the employees of its partly owned subsidiaries – and its firm order backlog totaled US$ 18.6 billion.

This document may contain projections, statements and estimates regarding circumstances or events yet to take place. Those projections and estimates are based largely on current expectations, forecasts on future events and financial tendencies that affect Embraer’s businesses. Those estimates are subject to risks, uncertainties and suppositions that include, among others: general economic, political and trade conditions in Brazil and in those markets where Embraer does business; expectations on industry trends; the Company’s investment plans; its capacity to develop and deliver products on the dates previously agreed upon, and existing and future governmental regulations. The words “believe”, “may”, “is able”, “will be able”, “intend”, “continue”, “anticipate”, “expect” and other similar terms are supposed to identify potentialities. Embraer does not feel compelled to publish updates nor to revise any estimates due to new information, future events or any other facts. In view of the inherent risks and uncertainties, such estimates, events and circumstances may not take place. The actual results can therefore differ substantially from those previously published as Embraer expectations.
