Goodrich to provide Air Data System, crew seats for Embraer Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 executive jets

Goodrich Corporation (NYSE: GR) has been selected by Embraer to supply Air Data Systems (ADS) and crew seats for the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 executive jets. The potential value of the selections is roughly $110 million over the life of the programs for both original equipment and aftermarket revenue. Work will be performed by Goodrich's Sensors and Integrated Systems team in Burnsville, Minn., as well as the Interiors team in Colorado Springs, Colo.

The ADS features Goodrich's SmartProbe(TM) technology to provide all critical air data parameters to the aircraft's flight control, pilot display and other systems. SmartProbe air data sensing technology integrates multi-function sensing probes, pressure sensors and full air data measurement processing allowing the elimination of pneumatic lines. This integration reduces the total number of individual system components, decreases overall weight and significantly improves system reliability, maintainability and performance. The SmartProbe ADS is also found on Embraer's 170, 190 and Phenom 300 jets.

The crew seats incorporate improvements in reliability and safety, and meet the most stringent government regulations for emergency landing protection. Goodrich crew seats are also featured on Embraer's Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 business jets.

Curtis Reusser, Segment President, Electronic Systems at Goodrich, said, "The selection of Goodrich for the new Legacy executive jets further solidifies our longstanding relationship with Embraer. We look forward to providing industry-preferred technology on these exciting new platforms."

Embraer's new mid-light Legacy 450 and mid-size Legacy 500 are the first business jets in their categories to offer a six-foot stand-up cabin along with best-in-class cabin space and sound proofing. The jets offer improved fuel efficiency, ease of maintainability, low operating costs, reduced noise and emissions, and highest cruising speeds in their classes. The Legacy 500 is expected to enter service in the second half of 2012, and the Legacy 450 in the second half of 2013.
