Last week I had the opportunity to visit Embraer main facility at San Jose dos Campos. A tour through the facilities revealed a very enthusiastic group of people working on new aircraft. I saw various types at various stages of completion. The cockpit of the 190 was a beauty and has a clean design. A nice detail outside was the deployed Ram Air Turbine. Also the Phenom 100 is a nice small jet. Go see some pictures at www.embraer.com (http://www.embraer.com) (it is not allowed to take pictures at their facilities)
Also we saw the Virgin Blue .com.au Embraer 170 ready for delivery. The crew had a celebration at the same hotel we were staying and it was nice to meet them.
