At press time, Brazilian manufacturer Embraer was set to unveil a full-size mockup of its proposed next business jet at the NBAA Convention in Atlanta in late September. According to company president and CEO
Frederico Fleury Curado, the mockup does not constitute an official launch of the as-yet-unnamed, nonderivative aircraft, which would fill the niche between Embraer's Phenom 300 and larger Legacy 600. He added that the company is still considering plans for a second aircraft in that same market segment. He said that Embraer has now received nonrefundable orders for more than 500 Phenom 100s. The airplane is scheduled for certification next summer. n

“"Many years ago, our company founder, Al Conklin, sold a new twin-engine business aircraft to a very successful entrepreneur. He had established a bit of a rapport with the individual and, after the sale, asked him straight out, 'How can you justify the cost of this airplane?' His reply? 'What is the cost of a divorce?'"–David Wyndham, president, Conklin & de Decker”
