There's now a $75 million private jet for your inner Texas oil tycoon (ERJ)



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?"
