The last quarter of 2008 was also marked by the delivery of the first two Phenom 100 executive jets. The value of the firm order backlog came to US$20.9 billion on December 31, 2008.
During 4Q08, Embraer delivered 44 E-Jets to Commercial Aviation, eight Legacy 600s, two Phenom 100s, and one ERJ 175 to Executive Aviation, and four jets to the Defense and Government segment:
