Embraer Executive Aviation delivered the 500th Phenom 300, the fastest light jet with greater range and better performance within the category.
The model of the Brazilian manufacturer raises the customer experience, establishing several speed records, along with comfort and technology.
The Phenom number 500 is the Phenom 300E, the newest edition that comes with single-pilot operation, plus cabin comfort for all on board, and spacious luggage compartment.
The new design allows for even more customization and easier maintenance – the exclusive Upper Tech Panel is a technology panel in the roof of the passenger cabin with Lufthansa Technik cabin system.
Since its entry into the market in 2009, Phenom 300 has completed nearly 150,000 flights, having sustained more than 50% share in the light jet segment since 2012.
The aircraft is in operation in more than 30 countries with more than 800,000 flight hours, carrying about 2.5 million passengers.
Phenom 300E achieves maximum cruise speed of 839 km/h, with capacity for six occupants. This model flies at an altitude of 45,000 feet thanks to the two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E engines with 3,360 pounds thrust each.
