The Lineage 1000 is the largest jet in Embraer’s portfolio. The aircraft is based on the EMBRAER 190 commercial jet, which was certified in August 2005.

The total baggage capacity is 443 cubic feet (12.54 cubic meters). A large, pressurized aft baggage area, which is conveniently accessible during flight, is more than twice the size of baggage compartments on competitive jets. The integrated Honeywell Primus Epic® avionics suite comes with five Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) multifunction control screens, Cursor Control Device (CCD), auto throttle, weather radar with turbulence detection, fly-by-wire, and other cutting-edge technologies.

The Lineage 1000 is powered by two efficient, reliable and easy-to-maintain General Electric CF34-10E7-B engines, delivering 18,500 pounds of thrust each. The aircraft’s maximum range, originally projected to be 4,200 nautical miles (7,778 km, or 4,833 miles) with eight passengers, and 4,350 nautical miles (8,056 km, or 5,005 miles) with four passengers, has been extended to 4,400 nautical miles (8,149 km, or 5,063 miles) with eight passengers, or 4,500 nautical miles (8,344 km, or 5,179 miles) with four passengers, both with NBAA IFR reserves and 200 nm alternate. The aircraft offers great airport performance and a maximum operating speed of Mach 0.82, and is capable of flying at an altitude of 41,000 feet (12,497 meters).
