Embraer has delivered the 500th Phenom 300 series business jet. According to General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) reports, the Phenom 300 is the only business jet model to reach this milestone in the last ten years. Being the fastest and farthest-flying light jet, the Phenom 300 has set multiple speed records, certified by the National Aeronautic Association and the Federation Aeronautique Internationale.
The milestone aircraft delivered on March 25 is the Phenom 300E, the newest edition of the light jet. Mr Freeman Pickett III received his aircraft at Embraer’s Customer Center in Melbourne, Florida and said: “The Phenom 100 served us very well for our trips throughout the Midwest, but as we began to fly more, with more passengers and to destinations farther away, we began to use a Phenom 300 to which we had access. The Phenom 300E has the speed, range and capabilities that we now need, including single-pilot operation — a very important feature for us — with all the cabin space and comfort for everybody onboard, not to mention all the baggage space. The cabin technology is unrivaled and elegant, and the connectivity is quite convenient.”
The Phenom 300E carries the ‘E’ for ‘Enhanced’ and refers to its inheritance of the Embraer DNA Design, first introduced in its larger siblings, the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 medium cabin jets.
The Embraer DNA Design introduced the Embraer-exclusive Upper Tech Panel, along the centerline of the aircraft ceiling, featuring the nice® HD CMS/IFE (Cabin Management System/InFlight Entertainment) by Lufthansa Technik.
