In The Works: MSJ and MLJ
The not-yet-named midsize jet and mid-light jet got the green light from Embraer’s board of directors on March 28, and Embraer plans to spend about $750 million to bring the two new jets to market in 2012 and 2013, respectively. Embraer has accepted letters of intent for more than 100 MSJs and MLJs and will start taking orders at EBACE in Geneva this month. Embraer announced that Honeywell will provide the new jets’ HTF7500-E engines, nacelles and thrust reversers and Rockwell Collins will supply its Pro Line Fusion avionics suite.
