A key success for Embraer Executive Jets (EEJ) has been the level of flight activity for its fleet in recent months. According to the Brazilian company, its aircraft outflew its main competitors in the last few months of 2013, based on available statistics from the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Eurocontrol.

With the average number of monthly cycles per aircraft being 30 to 35, and with a peak of 40 in November, Embraer surpassed Cessna, Bombardier and Gulfstream, each at around 25 cycles. However, these rival manufacturers tend to have higher proportions of larger aircraft in their installed bases. However, Embraer admits that in January 2010 it was in last place, with only 12 cycles per aircraft.

“This is thanks to low direct operating costs, cabin comfort and the reliability of our aircraft,” said Marco Tulio, EEJ president and CEO.
