Embraer’s numbering system for its existing models suggests current gaps in the line, and company chairman Mauricio Botelho, speaking in Manhattan last month after parking a Phenom 300 cabin mockup outside the New York Stock Exchange and ringing the opening bell, said the company will soon announce two more new business jets to plug gaps between the Phenom 300 light jet now under development and the Legacy 600 super-midsize, 80 of which are in service. That would leave two gaps (“large” and“ultra-long-range”) between the ERJ 135-based Legacy 600 and the E190-based “ultra-large” Lineage 1000.
