When a company decides to purchase an Embraer jet, it is a symbol of the firm's success. "It usually marks the coming of age of a company," said Matt Hagans, CEO of Eagle Creek Aviation Services. "It means they've become a successful midsize or larger company and their travel needs will offset the cost of an aircraft." Embraer has started assembling its Phenom 100 light jets in Florida, making Brevard County central to the trend.
