Hot and high certificate for Lineage


The Embraer Lineage 1000 has received hot and high altitude certificate from Brazil and USA

The Embraer Lineage 1000 has been awarded the hot-and-high altitude certificate to its list of operational capabilities, having been certified in Brazil and the USA.

“Designed to operate into weight-restricted airports like Teterboro, NJ and such challenging airports as London City and Aspen, the ultra-large Lineage 1000 now has another significant achievement in its portfolio,” said Ernest Edwards, president, Embraer Executive Jets. “The Lineage 1000 is now capable of operating at airports above 13,000 feet such as La Paz, Bolivia, one of the highest airports in the world at 13,357 feet. This is an important milestone since we have made an already operationally flexible aircraft even more flexible.”

The High-Altitude Takeoff and Landing Operation (HALTO) tests were completed in February when it achieved twin certifications from Brazil’s ANAC and the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). The new “hot-and-high” capability will be offered as an option and will be initially available for Brazilian and US operators.
