Embraer Executive Jets will showcase the entry-level Phenom 100E and Phenom 300 light jet, on static display, at Sun ‘n Fun International Fly-In & Expo, from April 21-26, in Lakeland, Fla.
“Launched in 2005, the Phenom 100 and Phenom 300 are fulfilling their mission as revolutionary jets, with a global fleet of over 570 aircraft in 38 countries,” said Marco Túlio Pellegrini, President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “Having been in service for about six years, the Phenom fleet has logged more than 500,000 flight hours.”
In 2014, the Phenom 100E entered service and introduced multi-function spoilers along with 11 new interior collections, standard veneer, and a redesigned refreshment center. Premium seats and added lavatory stowage options also became available. As of 2015, the Phenom 100E includes new baseline features, such as synthetic vision system, maps and charts, and an increased Maximum Zero Fuel Weight.
On April 2, the Company celebrated the delivery of the 100th Phenom jet produced at its assembly facility in Melbourne, Fla. The aircraft, a Phenom 300, was also the 40th delivered to NetJets. In October 2014, Embraer broke ground on its manufacturing expansion in Melbourne, to produce the Legacy 450 mid-light and the Legacy 500 midsize aircraft.
