By the end of the rst quarter of 2010, the Brazilian
manufacturer had delivered 115 of the jets -- two in
2008, 97 in 2009 and 16 in the rst quarter of this
year. Deliveries for the past two years fell short of
Embraer's expectations because of the crisis and some
production issues in early 2009 -- the company had
originally planned to deliver 15 in 2008 and 120-150
last year, but trimmed its 2009 target to 110.
Now the manufacturer insists it is on track to meet
its 2010 target of 120 Phenom-family aircra . e
number of deliveries in the rst three months of this
year seems small, but that was because the factory was
emptied in December 2009 with 42 Phenom 100
deliveries in a month.
Eclipse Aerospace has ambitions to restart EA-500 production.
