There’s flying, and then there’s flying.

Brazilian private-jet maker Embraer prefers that its customers experience the finer side of aviation. Earlier this year, the Sao Paulo-based company dazzled with its Kyoto Airship concept interior that featured a massive skylight installed on its flagship Lineage 1000E jets.

Now, Embraer has teamed up with Eddie Sotto, a designer based in Los Angeles, to create a custom interior called Skyranch One. Instead of the Kyoto Airship’s Asian theme, Skyranch is a harmonious blend of several cultures.

“Think Dallas’ JR Ewing meets the daughter of a Brazilian rancher,” Jay Beever, Embraer’s vice president of interior design, told Business Insider in an interview.

As a result, the Skyranch offers a Southwest theme with some Spanish and Portuguese flair, Beever said.

Here’s a closer look at the Skyranch One interior concept:


The Skyranch One interior is designed for Embraer’s top-of-the-line Lineage 1000E executive jet. The 1000E has room for 13 to 19 passengers, with a range of nearly 5,300 miles.

Like the Kyoto Airship, the centerpiece of the Skyranch interior is a massive (by airplane standards) vertical “picture” window. Embraer strengthened the structure in the area around the window in a manner similar to that of an emergency exit door, Beever told Business Insider.

The interior is designed to “capture the solitude and privacy, the romance of the wide open spaces,” Sotto wrote in a press release. “After all, aren’t the skies the last frontier of privacy?”

The materials featured and the fine details incorporated in the design are particularly engrossing.

Here, according to Sotto, the designer went for the simplicity and elegance of bleached woods, inlaid horn, soft wool, and light-colored leather.

For the seats, Sotto drew inspiration from the “layering of European saddles” and sought to surround the passenger with “rich materials that sooth to the touch.”

The walls are covered in an Hermes burlap-inspired material that also aids in sound insulation.

The price tag for a brand-new Embraer Lineage 1000E with the Skyranch One interior? That’s $70 million to $75 million.
