Embraer Delivers 500th Phenom 300-Series Business Jet

Embraer has delivered the 500th Phenom 300-series business jet.

 The milestone aircraft delivered is the Phenom 300E, the newest edition of the popular 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 Phenom 300 has fascinated customers since it entered the market and its tremendous popularity only challenges us even more to continue to deliver the ultimate customer experience,” said Michael Amalfitano, President & CEO, Embraer Executive Jets. “This landmark delivery to a current Phenom 100 customer with prior fractional ownership experience further validates the true innovation that the Phenom 300 delivers to private owners, corporations and operators in the Access Economy.”

Originally launched in 2005, the Phenom 300 entered service in December 2009 and is today in operation in more than 30 countries. The aircraft has accumulated more than 800,000 flight hours on over 600,000 flights over the past decade, carrying almost 2.5 million passengers over a distance that circles the earth 13 times, equivalent to a round trip to Mars.

 On average, a Phenom 300 takes flight about every 3.5 minutes, somewhere in the world, which amounts to more than 400 flights per day. In 2018 alone, Phenom 300 customers completed close to 150,000 flights.
