Embraer's Phenom executive jets receive more certifications

Phenom 300 now certified in 40 countries .

Las Vegas, Nevada, October 2011 – Embraer recently received certification for the Phenom 300 light executive jet to operate in Mexico and India, and the Phenom 100 entry level jet to operate in the Ukraine. Last month, the company also received Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for the optional belted lavatory seat for the Phenom 300, an option that has been widely requested by customers.

The Phenom 300 was first certified in December 2009 by Brazil’s National Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC) and the FAA, and is now certified in more than 40 countries, including Indonesia, Australia, Denmark, France, Morocco, the United Kingdom, South Africa, and the United Arab Emirates.

One of the fastest aircraft in its category, with speeds of 521 mph (839 km/h, or 453 knots – KTAS) and with superior takeoff performance for a jet in its category (takeoff field length is 3,138 feet, or 956 meters), the Phenom 300 also offers best-in-class performance underscored by efficient fuel consumption and low operating costs.

Its clean-sheet design has allowed Embraer to couple the best in available technology with superior design. An intelligent cabin developed in conjunction with BMW Group DesignworksUSA features an Ovalite® cabin design with more leg and head room for up to 11 occupants, and the largest galley, windows and cockpit in its class. Functional aesthetics extend to the cockpit, thanks to large displays and a Prodigy flight deck, including an optional synthetic vision system (SVS). A single refueling port, an externally serviced lavatory, and excellent cabin pressurization are some of the jet’s other distinctive features.

The Phenom 100 was certified in December 2008, can accommodate up to eight occupants with their luggage, and has a range of 1,178 nautical miles (2,182 kilometers). In 2010, it was the most delivered executive jet, with 100 units received by customers throughout the world. During that same period, the Phenom 300 earned the Flying Editor’s Award as the most innovative product of the year, and was acclaimed the most delivered aircraft in its category, with 26 units turned over to customers, globally.
