Though designed for luxury, the jet can be configured for up to 19 passengers. The jet’s interior was designed and manufactured by PATS Aircraft Completions in Georgetown, Del. The maximum range for the Lineage 1000 is 4,400 nautical miles with eight passengers, or 4,500 nautical miles with four passengers. An optional five different cabin zones provide a maximum comfort and privacy. There is also a private suite with a shower.

The maximum takeoff weight of the Lineage 1000 is 120,150 pounds allowing the jet to operation under Extended Operation rules (ETOPS 120). The newly designed fuel system, compliant with the latest SFAR 88 safety requirements has also been approved.
Powered by two General Electric CF34-10E7-B engines each delivering 18,500 pounds of thrust, the Lineage 1000 recently won the IDEA/Brazil design award.
The Lineage 1000’s price tag is just below $43 million and is scheduled to enter service in the United States in early 2009. Over 20 of the Lineage 1000 have been sold worldwide.
“One of the great achievements of this project regards to the maximum range of the aircraft, which was extended to 4,500 nautical miles, giving operators new possibilities for routes and destinations,” said Affonso.
