Airplane Entered Service In December, 2008
Embraer Executive Jet’s entry-level aircraft, the Phenom 100, passed another program milestone when flight hours totaled 100,000, a little over three years since it entered service in December 2008. “This is a significant milestone achieved in such a short time,” said Luciano Castro, Embraer Vice President, Programs – Executive Jets. “The Phenom 100 now has a healthy market share. The success of the aircraft, with 240 now in service worldwide, results from its flexibility in being able to meet the needs of diverse customers including private individuals, corporations, flight schools and motor racing executives as well as fractional and charter companies.”
The 100,000 hour mark comes after the company delivered the first U.S. produced Phenom 100 to Executive AirShare in December and the certification of an optional fifth seat a month earlier.
Designed for high utilization, the Phenom 100 can accommodate up to eight occupants and has seven different interior color palettes designed in partnership with BMW Group DesignworksUSA. Its range of 1,178 nautical miles, including NBAA IFR fuel reserves, means the aircraft is capable of flying nonstop from New York to Miami; from Geneva to Helsinki ; or from Sydney to Auckland. The jet has proved to be the fastest, with the largest baggage capacity and roomiest cabin in the entry-level category. It has the latest in cockpit design, and a private aft lavatory is one of its competitive features.
