Embraer continues to ramp up production of the Phenom 100, helping the Brazilian business jet manufacturer deliver a total of 54 business jets during the first three quarters–8 in the first, 19 in the second and 27 in the third. Legacy 600 deliveries, however, dropped from nine in the third quarter last year to five in the third quarter this year, and with a total of 12 Legacy deliveries in the first three quarters this year’s total is not likely to reach the 25-aircraft mark set last year. Embraer has delivered one Lineage 1000 bizliner so far this year. The company forecasts deliveries of 127 business jets this year–110 Phenom 100s and Phenom 300s and a combined total of 17 Legacy 600s and Lineage 1000s.
