During the first half of 2013 Embraer delivered 41 private jets.

The 19.5 per cent increase came largely from a 100 per cent increase in Phenom 300 deliveries, up from 15 units in 2013 to 30 in 2014.

The increase in Phenom 300 deliveries helped offset a drop of 43.6 per cent for Embraer’s smallest aircraft, with the Phenom 100 delivering nine aircraft in the first half versus 16 aircraft in 2013.

Elsewhere, deliveries remained steady, with Lineage 1000 shipments matching 2013 numbers, and Legacy 650 deliveries declining by a single aircraft.

Highlights during the first half of the year for Embraer included the delivery to Brazil’s Prime Fractional Club of the 500th Phenom family aircraft.
