Embraer Makes Change to VLJ/LJ Cabin

The mockup Embraer used to design the interiors for its very light jet (VLJ) and light jet (LJ) revealed a lack of room for the passengers’ feet. (Embraer last month tapped BMW Group DesignworksUSA to design the jets’ interiors.) This has prompted a cabin cross-section change from a circular design to an egg-shaped one, resulting in an extra five inches of foot room without compromising any other cabin dimensions. Since the change comes early in the programs’ development, it will not affect the timeline for the VLJ or LJ, which are expected to enter service in mid-2008 and mid-2009, respectively.
