It's a pretty big deal when an airplane company gets a sizable
order for new aircraft. Embraer had such a day during the NBAA
meeting and convention when NetJets announced it would be
purchasing 125 Phenom 300s for its fractional jet service.
The Platinum Edition aircraft, designed exclusively for NetJets,
will feature technology and comforts based on the requirements of
the NetJets fractional share Owners.
The two companies have entered into a 10-year fleet plan that
will provide the company’s fractional jet owners with the
fleet options, safety, service and reliability they have come to
expect from the worldwide leader in private aviation.
Owner research and a comprehensive view of flight patterns and
service requirements contributed to the decision to select the
Phenom 300. In addition, NetJets says an extensive analysis was
conducted at NetJets by multiple, cross-disciplinary teams
representing flight crews, maintenance, flight operations, safety,
sales, finance and owner services.
The Phenom 300 Platinum Edition will be developed by Embraer in
cooperation with NetJets. The jets will feature technology and
comforts based on the requirements of the NetJets fractional share
. Deliveries of the new aircraft are scheduled to begin in 2013
and will be executed in accordance with ongoing fleet management
