Phenom 300E business jet inherits the Embraer DNA Design and offers unmatched comfort and personalisation in its class
Embraer has delivered the first Phenom 300E, the new model of the most-delivered light business jet for the past six years, just five months after its launch.
The new light jet model was launched – and debuted – at the 2017 National Business Aviation Association’s Business Aviation Conference and Exhibition (NBAA-BACE), in October 2017.
The new aircraft is designated “E” for “Enhanced” in reference to its entirely redesigned cabin and the addition of the industry-leading nice HD CMS/IFE (Cabin Management System/InFlight Entertainment) by Lufthansa Technik. The Phenom 300, the new model’s successful predecessor, has been the best-selling and most delivered light business jet for the last six years.
“We are thrilled to deliver the first Phenom 300E on schedule, only five months after its launch, with overwhelming positive reviews from customers and the market,” said Michael Amalfitano, President and CEO, Embraer Executive Jets.
“I want to congratulate our teams, who have so passionately worked to bring to market yet another best-seller, delivering true value to customers. I am also elated for our first Phenom 300E owner, a return customer who will enjoy an even more elevated customer experience with all the truly innovative value in this amazing new aircraft.”
The new Phenom 300E business jet received its type certificate in the first quarter from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), and the Brazilian Civil Aviation Agency (ANAC – Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil).
“The Phenom 300E is an elegant and comfortable aircraft that is the best match for our travel needs throughout Africa,” said John McCormick, a South Africa businessman. “The interior architecture and design are modern and all the customisation options allowed us to make the aircraft perfect for us. The Phenom 300 has served us quite well and we’re even more excited to fly the Phenom 300E home.”
The Phenom 300E inherits the Embraer DNA Design, first introduced in its larger siblings, the Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 midsize jets. The application of this design in the Phenom 300E rendered a more spacious cabin with more customisation options and ease of maintainability.
Starting with the new Embraer-designed and manufactured seats, the aircraft offers unmatched comfort and personalisation in its class. The seat profile, with enhanced headrest, retractable armrest, along with the new table, side ledge, side wall, and valance designs, optimise passenger mobility in the cabin with expanded aisle clearance and increased cabin space.
The new seats in the Phenom 300E feature broader backs for greater support, extendable headrests with bolsters, and extendable leg rests for improved ergonomics. The aircraft’s seats were designed and engineered by Embraer and are being manufactured at Embraer Aero Seating Technologies, in Titusville, Florida.
The Phenom 300E performs among the top light jets, with a high speed cruise of 453 knots and a six-occupant range of 1,971 nautical miles (3,650 km) with NBAA IFR (instrument flight rules) reserves. With the best climb and field performance in its class, the Phenom 300E costs less to operate and maintain than its peers. The aircraft is capable of flying at 45,000 ft (13,716 m), powered by two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW535E engines with 3,200 pounds of thrust each.
The Phenom 300E offers a spacious cabin with the Embraer DNA Design and the largest baggage compartment in its category. The largest windows in the class deliver abundant natural lighting in the cabin as well as in the private lavatory. The comfort of the seats, with recline and full movement capability, is enhanced by the best pressurisation among light jets (6,600 ft maximum cabin altitude).
Embraer is one of the world’s leading executive jet manufacturers, having entered the business aviation market in 2000 with the Legacy jet, which led to the launch of Embraer Executive Jets in 2005. Its portfolio, the broadest in the market, consists of the entry-level Phenom 100EV and the light Phenom 300E jet, the medium cabin Legacy 450, the large Legacy 650E, and the ultra-large Lineage 1000E.
Meanwhile, Embraer, at the Dubai Air Show in November, announced the enhancement of the flight experience aboard its Legacy 450 and Legacy 500 mid-cabin business jets. The cabin altitude of these two revolutionary aircraft is already considered among the lowest on the market, but the maximum cabin altitude has been further reduced to a best-in-class 5,800 ft (1.768 m).
The Legacy 450 is a mid-light business jet with a best-in-class 6-ft-tall flat-floor cabin. The Embraer DNA Design of the cabin includes four fully reclining club seats that may be berthed into two beds for complete rest in a 5,800-ft cabin altitude.
The Legacy 500 has the best-in-class 6-ft flat-floor cabin, which is comparable to those of some aircraft in the super
mid-size category. The Embraer DNA Design of the cabin includes eight club seats that may be berthed into four beds for complete rest in a cabin altitude of 5,800 ft.
